Tragedy, on leaving home. ( )
  et.carole | Jan 21, 2022 |
LATW audio production of the classic play recounting the challenges facing an aristocratic Russian family who desperately wants to maintain their way of life even as their finances fall on hard times. I found it challenging to keep characters straight in this one and wasn't always certain which character was who - possibly complicated by the complexities of Russian names. This would have been easier to keep straight in a traditional production as you have faces to track with the voice. Not a bad listen but not a play I'm likely to revisit. ( )

Hermosa. ( )

No likeable characters whatsoever, with a plot that I couldn't bring myself to care about at all. Gah. ( )

Un sottile senso di sconforto, di disagio circola nell'aria come uno spiffero invisibile che però ti farà venire il 'torcicollo'. ( )
