Audible Editor Reviews

Bang the Drum Slowly is one of the most memorable baseball stories of the modern era. In this lively stage dramatization - narrated by theater veteran and former Friends star, David Schwimmer, with additional notable performances by Jonathan Silverman (Weekend at Bernie’s), Harry Shearer (Spinal Tap, The Simpsons), and Ed Begley, Jr. (St. Elsewhere) - we follow the New York Mammoths baseball team. But the true center of this story, and where our heartstrings are pulled, is catcher Bruce Pearson, who learns he has Hodgkin’s Disease.

This tearjerker was also adapted into a 1973 film starring Robert DeNiro.
