Editorial Reviews

When a beloved Sister serving at a Brooklyn parish dies, her passing brings together a bevy of her now-grown former students and wards who experience her loss, in part, by confronting their feelings about their childhoods. Loaded with characters superbly portrayed by an energetic cast, and with each member grinding his or her personal ax very publicly, this crisply recorded play finds its characters ultimately resolving their issues. The miking allows the performers to explore their vocal and emotional ranges unfettered by the need to "fill the hall" with their voices. Fraught with anger and humor, passion and bewilderment, commitment and loss, this audio brings listeners a place of emotional catharsis.

Publisher's Summary

In this recent Off-Broadway hit, a group of old friends find themselves at Harlem's Ortiz Funeral Home to mourn the death of a beloved nun from their childhood. As they bounce off of each other with old hurts and the harsh realities of grown-up life, a murder mystery (and a few lives) begins to unravel. Hilarious, raunchy, and ultimately very touching, Stephen Adly Guirgis is a new voice to be celebrated.

Fast paced

Non stop action, great flow, acting, story line. Kept me on edge waiting to see what was going to happen next. I thoroughly enjoyed this production. Thanks to all involved..

Our Lady of 121st Street: Realistic enough

I liked the realistic feel of this audiobook, from the way the characters spoke to each other to the way they acted. It was so raw, emotional, and intense. There's no resolution between the characters who had conflict, and that was the point. Conflict isn't fixed in a day. It makes the story seem all over the place and open-ended, but that is how life goes. Life isn't easy and fair. It doesn't end happy and smooth.
