Audible Editor Reviews

In this bittersweet Broadway play, Jason Robards is Jacob Brackish, a tough high school music teacher who is dying at home. His advertisement for a housekeeper is answered by Katherine, a woman Jacob has forgotten he flunked several years before. Robards is superb as the crotchety Brackish; he brings listeners' sympathies close, then pushes them back with one rattling cough, one caustic line. With all the Southie sass of a true Bostonian, Ivey infuses both playful revenge and personal pain into the role of Katherine with a nearly flawless accent. This play is at once hilarious, touching and unforgettable.
