A sexually charged and wickedly funny thriller starring Tony Award-winning actor Billy Crudup, Harry Clarke is the story of a shy Midwestern man leading an outrageous double life as the titular cocky Londoner. Moving to New York City and presenting himself as an Englishman, he charms his way into a wealthy family's life as the seductive and precocious Harry, whose increasingly risky and dangerous behavior threatens to undo more than his persona.

It's one thing to be an actor, but it's entirely another to be a storyteller and rapidly oscillate between characters, voices, and scenes all by yourself. Really enjoyable for this theater fan!

  • Emma

First published in 1816 and generally considered Jane Austen's finest work, Emma is a humorous portrayal of a heroine whose injudicious interferences in the life of a young parlour-boarder in a neighboring village often lead to substantial mortification. Austen brings to life a myriad of engaging characters as she presents a mixture of social classes as she did in Pride and Prejudice.

I know Austen scholars say Emma is her best work but I’ve never been as charmed with it as her others. Thought listening to it would help...nope. Narrator is fine except does perhaps too well a job making Miss Bates annoying!
