Critic Reviews

"Both Lithgow and Wong have refined their work over hundreds of stage performances in these challenging roles. Hearing two such accomplished actors in parts they have mastered is a rare treat....[This is] a classic interpretation of an acclaimed play. On the strength of recordings like these, the L.A. Theatre Works is producing radio drama to rival the quality work of the BBC." (AudioFile)

great play, but you need to know it first

This is the first time I've downloaded a live production, and so the sounds of the audience and sound quality took a bit of getting used to. This is a great play and the performers are wonderful, but without the settings and actually seeing the performers (especially regarding the BD Wong's performance), you might get a little lost if you didn't know the story first - if not from the play, at least from the movie of the same name.

Excellent Performance

I got this book when I was very busy in school and this was one of our assigned plays for a scenic design class. I read the script along with reading at times, and listening to this gave me a better understanding of the storyline, more so than some of my classmates. B.D. Wong and John Lithgow gave a performance that made these characters to life and it could give you a picture in your head as to what would have been going on, on the stage.
