I picked up this play because I am currently directing Antigone by Jean Anouilh (but a different translation). I wanted to get an idea of how this story was changed from the original by Sophocles. And I was so delighted to find the adaptation fresh, new and alive. The LA Theatre Works' actors do such a stellar job that while I was listening to the play I found myself closing my eyes to imagine the how the actors where moving on stage. If you are a lover of myths, classics, and/or theatre then you MUST listen to this play.

I can't recommend this play enough! It is incredibly deep in its ideas and its emotions and there is just enough humor to keep it from being depressing. The actors are all fantastic and their voices fit their roles perfectly. You won't regret buying this one.

What made the experience of listening to Antigone (Dramatized) the most enjoyable?
The listener is drawn in to an alien but compelling culture. The resolute determination of a strong female protagonist permeates the drama.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Antigone's refusal to abandon convention in the face of death.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
Neutral accents and more subtle acting style would help but mostly I found it impossible to get into the performance because the contemporary north american accents displaced the story/scene
What was most disappointing about Jean Anouilh’s story?
The story is great, the audio is the problem
Would you be willing to try another one of Elizabeth Marvel and Full Cast ’s performances?
You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?
Again I love the story, I just cant listen to the actors. I couldn't even get through scene 1
