Audible Editor Reviews

If you're expecting the Spenser Tracy/Katharine Hepburn classic battle of the sexes, you'll be disappointed. But Adam Arkin and Anne Heche make this version their own. Married attorneys Amanda and Adam Bonner find themselves on opposite sides of an assault case, with Amanda defending a woman who shot her philandering husband. Heche and Arkin make this comedy brassier, faster, and less sophisticated than the original, without losing a laugh. This is a first-rate ensemble production with a polished supporting cast, especially Amy Pietz as the gun-toting wife, Marvin Kaplan as the droll court clerk, and Annabelle Gurwitch as the cheating husband's sweetie. The topping on the hilarious antics is the zippy 1940s' musical interludes.

Publisher's Summary

    "Great adaptation of a classic!"

    I love the movie "Adam's Rib" with Spencer Tracey & Katherine Hepburn so was a little dubious about buying this adaptation. I'm so pleased I did! It's a most enjoyable rendering of this play featuring wonderful performances by Adam Arkin & Anne Heche and a talented supporting cast.

    This is a story of the age-old battle of the sexes and the double standards society has regarding the roles and rights of men and women. Although the original was written back in the 1950's, the material is still delightfully witty. While our social values have changed in many respects, this play highlights some issues where there is still inequality between men and women.

    This one is definitely worth a listen!
