Choreographer, Director, Actor, Dancer, Educator. And lover of audio books! They are theatre for the mind!
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 just love the way the author describes the people and the landscape of Nebraska. I am from Nebraska and had relatives that homesteaded there. I imagined them starting their farm on the harsh land like Alexandra did in the story. She was a strong woman who had a head for business and the land.
Alexandra - strong woman!
