Standing before a very live and appreciative audience at the Almeida Theater in London in August 1995, Douglas Adams claimed to have five performing voices: “posh quiet, posh loud, less posh quiet, less posh loud, and Australian.” This performance is about the silliest, most delightful, poshest dramatic reading you’ll ever want to hear—with Adams choosing three selections from his wonderfully irreverent, hugely successful canon of science fiction satire. With the subject matter being irrational couches and Frogstar Battle Robots, he gleefully presents some of his best-loved characters, including Arthur Dent, Ford Prefect, and Marvin the Paranoid Android. Adams died unexpectedly in 2001. This live CD is a fine remembrance of a beloved author of gentle insight and exceptional style.
