Theater professors and couple, Nicky Abbondanza and Noah Oliver, are going overboard as usual, but this time on an Alaskan cruise, where dead college theater professors are popping up everywhere, from the swimming pool to the captain's table. Further complicating matters are Nicky's and Noah's parents as surprise cruise passengers, and Nicky's assignment to direct a murder mystery dinner theater show onboard ship. Nicky and Noah will need to use their drama skills to figure out who is bringing the curtain down on vacationers.

If you could sum up Drama Cruise in three words, what would they be?

hysterical, intriguing, passionate

Who was your favorite character and why?

Of course Nicky, the MC. He has a wonderful sense of humor and is so passionate about everything he does -- from his directing, to his love for his husband, to his dedication to solving the murders.

Have you listened to any of Brad Enright’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No. This is the first book I have heard. He did a great job in delineating the different characters and moving the story along.

Any additional comments?

Joe Cosentino has me rolling on the floor with his zany, witty, and unexpected humor, yet he writes fascinating characters and an intriguing mystery plot that keeps you guessing until the end.

When Mike found out he would be sharing a dorm with a former football star, he was terrified. He'd been bullied by jocks all his life for being scrawny and weak and didn't have high expectations of how it would go. To his surprise, Brett was a great guy that was easy to get along with and seemed to enjoy his company. When Mike learned that Brett was gay, it was a shock but it also explained the threatening letters that Mike had been receiving. Was Mike really at risk because of a jealous ex?

Would you listen to His Undoing: A Gay For You Erotic Short Story again? Why?

Yes. It really drew me into the characters and storyline, and I enjoyed spending time with them. Like any good book or movie, it will be nice to hear again -- and I will probably find more nuances the second time around.

What did you like best about this story?

I liked the deep tenderness, yet real sensuality of the two main characters. Following Mike's journey and personal discoveries were especially heartwarming. He was very real. That is what made the sexual scenes all the more steamy.

Have you listened to any of Fred Wolinsky’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Not yet, but I would like to see what else he can do. I love that he does not sound like a radio announcer, but rather like a real college kid. His narration drew me into the story and characters. I felt like I was experiencing a movie.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes. It was less than 2 hours, so that is certainly possible. The story moved quickly and had some unexpected twists. I was always curious to see what would happen next.
