What the Critics Say

"Charles Busch’s Judith of Bethulia gave me one of the best laugh-out-loud times I’ve ever had. This saga of the chaste widow Judith, draped with baubles, bangles and beads, undergoing dishonor and humiliation for a good cause in old Jerusalem is Busch at his wittiest and most hysterically funny; also at times his most touching. With this recording of the full play, everyone, myself included, can enjoy again and again itssassiness and rich humor as well as those unexpected more sober turns the play takes. Only D. W. Griffith, never known for his funnybone, might listen to this Busch-bathed version of D.W.’s 1914 silent screen spectacle without cracking a smile but for anyone else such a reaction seems as unlikely as a July snowstorm on what was once Judith’s home turf." (Robert Osborne, Host, Turner Classic Movies)

    Story
    "The Queen of Drag Theater at his/her best!"
    Where does Judith of Bethulia rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Its a great group performance with Charles Busch giving his leading ladies throw more shade to one another that all RuPaul Drag Races combined.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The amazing Charles Busch finally makes his plays into Audible books and I, for one, am in Heaven!
    Judith of Bethulia re-tells the Biblical legendary diva via a New Yawk interpretation with jokes and punch lines flying at the speed of a NY cab driver.
    Imagine someone like Bette Davis. Rosalind Russell. Joan Crawford or Bea Arthur on the lead role of a hard boiled grand dame saving the people of David, but dressed to the nines while spitting out one line zingers.
    Amazingly entertaining.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Judith of Bethulia helping the starved doing the shopping for the poor that includes a porterhouse steak with the veins.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    The Lady in Question is...Judith of Bethulia. Starring Bianca Del Rio, Lady Bunny and Miss Coco Peru.
