"This is pure and compelling radio drama." (Los Angeles Times)
I think I should have downloaded the enhanced audio version, because it was pretty hard for me to understand most of the lines. I had to keep the audio up all of the way just to try and understand it, and even that didn't help during the whispering scenes.
John de Lancie as Cassius is pure gold. I knew I recognized the voice, such a compelling performance. I had to look the credits up on the L.A. Theatre Works web site afterward to be sure. He really stole the show.
The audio is definitely on the quiet side and hard to make out at times, what with all the scheming at all. But the great ensemble cast really brings this great play to life.
A classic.. And still relevant.. Because the crisis of leadership is still what makes or breaks efforts to lead.. The doors to peace, which remain open, are still the ones that anyone can enter upon ..
