GLENGARRY GLEN ROSS
by David Mamet | Read by Joe Mantegna, Gordon Clapp, Kyle Colerider-Krugh, Richard Dreyfuss, John Getz, Richard Schiff, Josh Stamberg

This 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.
