Brighton Beach Memoirs

This is about the best two hours one can spend.
I enjoyed this work very much. While listening with my headphones in the yard my neighbor thought I was laughing at her. That alone was worth the cost of the book. It very well performed and extremely enjoyable. Give it a listen, you will not be disappointed.

Great to hear this play so well-performed

This play is fantastic (you really can't go wrong with Neil Simon). It's the perfect blend of drama in a comedic format, and listening to these incredible actors perform it so well was really delightful. I would definitely recommend listening to this performance.
