    An enigmatic young woman. A manipulative sister. Their brilliant father. An unexpected suitor. One life-altering question. The search for the truth behind a mysterious mathematical proof is the perplexing problem in David Auburn's dynamic play. Starring Anne Heche and Jeremy Sisto, Proof is a winner of the 2001 Tony award for Best Play as well as the 2001 Pulitzer Prize for drama.

    Robert says: "Excellent adaptation of the Pulitzer Prize play"
    "Better than the Movie"
    Overall

    D. Auburn writes a great play, and Anne Heche scores high on her interpretation of Catherine, the daughter of a brilliant mathematician. Her portrayal resonated with me more so than with Gwyneth Paltrow's. The rest of the cast hold their own very well in ensemble with Ms. Heche.

    My favorite radio play to date.

  • The Company: A Novel of the CIA

    • UNABRIDGED (41 hrs and 22 mins)
    • By Robert Littell
    • Narrated By Scott Brick

    Story
    (2141)

    "If Robert Littell didn't invent the American spy novel," says Tom Clancy, "he should have." In this spectacular Cold-War-as-Alice-in-Wonderland epic, Littell, "the American le Carre," takes us down the rabbit hole and into the labyrinthine world of espionage that has been the CIA for the last half-century. "Ostensibly a single novel, The Company can also be listened to as an anthology of cracking good spy stories," says (Publishers Weekly).

    Cynthia says: "Hang on to your Hat"
    "Not a bad listen"
    Overall

    I enjoyed listening and going through history the Cold War, and the prominent figures. I liked most of the character development. The plot was great, and the reader is fine. But some of the characters' clich? dialogue was starting to wear on me toward the end. They graduated from Yale, for Pete's sake; surely they could have articulated better. Overall, not a bad listen.
