Critic reviews

"The Oscar-nominated Alfred Molina and Fran Guinan...pour on the testosterone in this vigorous audio version, taped before an appreciative audience. Director Simonson keeps the pace brisk but orchestrates the tempo masterfully from hot to cold and back again. Charlotte Rae as the mother does a wonderful little star turn at the end." (AudioFile)
