  • "A classic is given a fabulous update!"

    Overall

    Story

    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.

    The body of Polynices, Antigone's brother, has been ordered to remain unburied by Creon, the new king of Thebes. Antigone defies the law, sealing her fate. Originally produced in Paris during the Nazi occupation, Anouilh's Antigone was seen by the French as theatre resistance and by Germans as an affirmation of authority.

  • Julius Caesar

    "Wonderful Adaptation"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story
    Where does Julius Caesar rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    One of the Top 40 overall and in the Top 3 for dramatizations.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Low hanging fruit is Brutus for this question, but his followers were equally intriguing. Marc Antony terribly complex as well.


    What does Andrew Buchan and Sean Barrett bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Amazing production, they and the rest if the cast really out a lot of effort in and it paid off.


  • Hamlet

    "Wonderful Production"

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This is a must listen version. The production quality and acting is just phenomenal. I can't think of a better production in the attention to detail. Just a terrific use of sound effects and music first off; they don't take anything away from the production, which is hard to do in audio only format.


    What about Anton Lesser and full cast ’s performance did you like?

    Anton Lesser's Hamlet is just first rate. The way he communicates the character in such an understandable way. Rarely have I empathized with a character so well. Standing ovation.


  • King Richard III

    "Who can top Brannaugh?"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story
    Where does King Richard III rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Best dramatization I've listened too.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Brannaugh's Richar both approachable and mysterious.


    What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Terrific that much of his cast from Much Ado through As You Like It joined in.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Of course!

    2 of 3 helpful votes

    I discovered Oscar Wilde through a quote attributed to him. His subtle humor is fantastic. I laughed rarely but smiled often.

    I want to listen to this audio repeatedly just to soak up all the subtleties that I may have missed.

    Somebody please tell me who else writes like Mr. Wilde!

    This final play from the pen of Oscar Wilde is a stylish send-up of Victorian courtship and manners, complete with assumed names, mistaken lovers, and a lost handbag. Jack and Algernon are best friends, both wooing ladies who think their names are Ernest, "that name which inspires absolute confidence." Wilde's effervescent wit, scathing social satire, and high farce make this one of the most cherished plays in the English language.

    Hamlet, which dates from 1600-1601, is the first in Shakespeare's great series of four tragedies. In writing this extraordinary play, Shakespeare effectively re-invented tragedy after an interval of roughly 2,000 years - you would have to go back to the Greek dramatists of fifth century Athens to find anything of comparable depth and maturity. This production features the voice of Anton Lesser as Hamlet along with a full cast.

    This drama follows the myth of Iphigenia at Aulis, where she is subject to human sacrifice by her father Agamemnon. He draws her and Clytemnestra, her mother, thither with a promise of marriage to Achilles. The necessities of sacrifice are both in dialogue and in choral poetry weighed and judged. This play concludes either in an epiphany of wisdom or of violence. A form for tragedy in English, distinguished by seven scenes of dialogue and seven choral performances, is established in this play.
