Audible Editor Reviews

From one of the most important young American playwrights comes a work that expands beyond its premise and characters to meditate on themes of repression, denial, and betrayal. Financial whiz Sandy Sonnenberg has long ago chosen to deny his homosexuality, creating a facade that ultimately causes his self-destruction as he eventually faces the repercussions of his actions. Performing for a live audience, the cast of award-winning actors - including Neil Patrick Harris, Patricia Wettig, and Ron Rifkin - maintains a snappy pace that just barely veils the unsaid words, vulnerability, and roiling emotions underneath.

    What made the experience of listening to The Paris Letter (Dramatization) the most enjoyable?

    This was the first play of Jon Robin Baits I have listened to so far and it was touching and thought-provoking. The plot encompasses several decades and characters, but is easy to follow. The story remained on my mind for days after. Each actor delivered a wonderful performance!


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

    I especially liked Anton, the narrator of the story. There was an unapologetic quality to him, a man who knows who he is and remains true to himself. He manages to remain involved and somewhat objective at the same time. John Glover is one of my favourite actors and he was as moving as always.


    Any additional comments?

    I am looking forward to listening to other plays by this author. I have seen his TV creation, the drama Brothers And Sisters, and now I value him as a playwright as well.
