Favorites are histories and mysteries. Once avid reader trying to pick up the pace again later in life.
I love old and Restoration theater and you can't do better than this production of "She Stoops to Conquer." First of all, the story is a lot of fun. Then, second to that, the performances in this version are absolutely flawless and wonderful. It is such a delight and so much fun to listen to!!!! I compare this to a BBC version 50 or 60 years ago, and this is superior. If you enjoy a play with fun characters and wonderful situations and dialogue, you will really enjoy this.
I just love all the performances and interplays between characters. They hold up as realistic characters even with these times, and all the dialogue is so witty and fun!
No, I love listening to "She Stoops to Conquer" in smaller segments, over and over. I usually listen when going to bed or walking my dog and this version is absolutely wonderful to listen to then or anytime!
Great fun! I love listening to this over and over.
An Ideal Husband is my favorite of Wilde's works, and I chose to listen to this version specifically because it was presented as an audio version of the play. And were it not for Yeardley Smith as Mabel, I would have given this 5 stars. Unfortunately, I had a rather nails-on-the-chalkboard reaction to Yeardley Smith's voice. That's what I get for not listening to the sample, I suppose. I'll probably listen to An Ideal Husband again, but not this version of it.
This recording is a performance featuring Rosalind Ayres, Jacqueline Bisset, Paul Gutrecht, Martin Jarvis, Robert Machray, Miriam Margolyes, Alfred Molina, Jim Norton and Yeardley Smith.
