    Story
    "Wonderful Performance; The Play, Not My Cup o' Tea"
    Would you try another book from Bertolt Brecht and/or the narrators?

    I would try another book by the narrators but not by Bertolt Brecht. I am not really a great fan of plays and am only interested in trying them out through the performances of L.A. Theatre Works.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Arcadia by Tom Stoppard, published by L.A. Theatre Works.


    Which character – as performed by the narrators – was your favorite?

    Galileo Galilei - Stacy Keach. His performance truly stole the show.
