Listener Opinions

    " A political blockbuster? Well, a dramatic dtory based on a high-falutin' politico that reminds one of the big Nanny Illegal scandal a ways back. Little bombs go off with deft precision. Fun! "

    " I remember seeing it on Broadway and could hear Lynne Thigpen in my head saying the lines. It seems very much relevant as we go through a Supreme Court confirmation process. "

    " Better than I thought it would be and not as preachy as I thought it would be- "

    " Awfully corny as an audio book, but I did find the characters engaging, and it made a rainy night on the Pennsylvania Turnpike a little more bearable. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Julie-Anne | 5/31/2012

    " Gosh. What a TERRIBLE, TERRIBLE play. It is just painfully boring, extremely feminist, and just...bleh. NOT my cup of tea. One of the most terrible things I had to read in college, by far. "

    " ARGH! So, did he sleep with her? I need a class discussion. What an intersting "little" play about politics, family and misplaced...social angst. I liked this one and will enjoy reading student commentary on it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laura | 2/28/2012

    " A little on the predictable side, but maybe that's just because I have had women in politics and the media's treatment of them on my mind for many months now. I think she hits the dilemma right on the nose. "

    " What a sad, sad play. Considered by some to be a great feminist piece showing the push-pull relationship between family and work (in this case, politics) it really just made the main character a bit pathetic. "
