Audio Theater • 2.5 hrs. • Audio Program • © 1950

Sir Ralph Richardson shines in another segment of this nostalgic radio series, originally broadcast by the BBC in the 1950's. What is so exquisite about the audio production is the range of pieces: from Henry James to Joseph Conrad to Somerset Maugham. Adding to its charm, the Theater Royal provides excellent musical transitions, which aid in changing the tone from one piece to the next. The quality of the recordings is not perfect; the crackling and popping could irk some listeners who aren't ready for its vintage authenticity. The performance wins out, however, as Richardson proves adept at comedy, as well as drama, and makes this a well-rounded collection. R.A.P. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/NOV 00]
