Arthur Miller, Author, Arthur Miller, Author , performed by a full cast including Brian Cox, Saidah Ekulona, Jenny O'Hara L.A. Theatre Works $25.95 (0p) ISBN 978-1-58081-335-8

To double his pleasure, Lyman Felt has procured two wives, but when they find out about each other, he incurs double the wrath. Miller's play about the feelings of a lying man delve into the harder questions about human relationships, pitching love and truth to one's self at the expense of love and truth to another. As Felt comes to terms with the two families he has ruined, he must find redemption while being true to his larger-than-life self-perception. L.A. Theatre Works performs this amusing and even endearing play in front of a live audience with acclaimed actor Brian Cox lambasting his way through scenes as Felt repudiating and embracing his two angered lovers. Cox's voice, like Felt's personality, dominates nearly every scene, which benefits the production since he is the epicenter of humor, thought and enlightenment. The acoustics of the performance hall provides crisp and resonating voices of the cast while moderately capturing the audience. The ambience of it all harkens to the old days of radio shows like Orson Welles's Mercury Theatre on the Air, but with sound quality far superior than any antenna could provide. (Feb.)
