“Thrilling…[Angels in America] works brilliantly as a radio-style production with ambient sound effects and Adrian Sutton’s electrifying instrumental score adding to an already rich listening experience… Theater fans will cherish this thoughtfully produced title that does justice to Kushner’s masterful creation.”—Booklist, starred audio review
“Throughout the audio, Brown portrays various New York City accents, from Manhattan to the Bronx and Brooklyn, peppered with the British speech of Olive and Edna and the determined, courageous voice of Vivian, which becomes more empathetic as she ages. City of Girls is reflective of the time and Brown stays true to the characters, in this engrossing audio.”—Booklist, starred review

“Richly layered and beautifully told, the work moves easily between moments of stark reality and moments of magic, with Joe Morton’s pitch-perfect narration adding to the pleasure of the story.”—Library Journal, starred review
