Library Ed. L.A. Theatre Works 1997
CS ISBN $19.95 Three cassettes
Susan Albert Loewenberg’s award-winning L.A. Theatre Works performs before live audiences at a Santa Monica hotel, in cooperation with the pioneering public radio station, KCRW. The popular, somewhat recherché broadcasts feature established Hollywood actors who love radio and love to act. The resulting high spirits are evident even here, in productions seemingly designed to hammer nails into Dostoyevsky’s coffin. Clumsy scripting, disparate acting styles and inept production mortify these two masterpieces. Nonetheless, the theatricality and sheer energy hold one’s attention and, if nothing else, give one a diverting Classics Illustrated introduction to one of the greatest novelists of all time.
