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.
This is a deeply beautiful rendition of the play!! That acting is superb, the pace perfect and even the music is quite interesting!
"Gripping and credible performance"
The listener is drawn in to an alien but compelling culture. The resolute determination of a strong female protagonist permeates the drama.
Antigone's refusal to abandon convention in the face of death.
