This fascinating dual biography of Vladimir Lenin and Woodrow Wilson is given a fine performance by Stefan Rudnicki. While it may seem incongruous to compare Lenin and Wilson, the author sees both the Russian leader and the U.S. president as revolutionaries, creators of the modern world in which we now live who "pay the price" for their idealism. Both looked at establishing a heaven on earth, of sorts, and both were not afraid to use power to achieve their goals. Basically, both saw the state as the means to achieve their goals. Rudnicki has a distinct, resonant baritone that is suitably expressive throughout this production. His pace is steady, and his words easy to follow. He enunciates well and affects a slightly different voice for quotations. M.T.F. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2018]
