Capturing a youthful 1940s-sounding innocence and using the pace and timing of classic comedy, Josh Radnor HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER leads a crack ensemble cast marching through basic training in the heart of Dixie during WWII in this second part of Neil Simon's uproarious autobiographical trilogy (caught between BRIGHTON BEACH MEMOIRS and BROADWAY BOUND). Radnor is exceptional at breaking the fourth wall and turning directly to the audience to deliver Eugene Jerome's droll narrative asides, while Steve Rankin and Justine Bateman provide honest depth and heartache as the menacing drill sergeant and the Mississippi-accented prostitute with a heart of gold. Love, sex, and growing up-- the recruits had a lot to accomplish before being shipped overseas. Vintage Neil Simon. B.P. © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2014]
