What the Critics Say

GLENGARRY GLEN ROSS David MametRead by Joe Mantegna, Gordon Clapp, Kyle Colerider-Krugh, Richard Dreyfuss, John Getz, Richard Schiff, Josh StambergThis wonderful full-cast rendering of Mamet's 1984 Pulitzer Prize-winning play loses little in the staged recording. The gathering of vocal luminaries brings passion, poise, and panache to the narrative in a memorable audio performance. The subtle but completely appropriate sound effects are exciting and superbly amplify the angst and drama. There are seven active character voices, and while it's sometimes a bit difficult to keep them all straight, the natural flow of the story helps the listener stay on track with who's doing what to whom in this sometimes funny, sometimes brutally human drama.

I listened to this performance as part of a course studying dramatic writing. It's an excellent piece of writing for any student of the craft and the performance was well done.
