"This Is Audible..."

Updated: Nov 5, 2021

Being a playwright, I’ve seen a lot of the theater. The night before the shutdown, my wife and I saw The Book of Mormon at the Ahmanson in Los Angeles. A few evenings before that, we saw Passion by Sondheim and Lapine in Pasadena. I’ve never been one that liked filmed plays. Once they’re films, they’re not plays anymore. But I did enjoy “One Man, Two Guvnors.”

Since I changed my writing genres, I decided to read more and did it the lazy way. Through Audible. I’m not calling anyone lazy if this is how you read. I’m calling myself lazy for reading this way. There are downsides to it. Still, If being lazy wasn’t enjoyable, I guess we’d live in a world of worker bees.

Here are the things I’ve “read” in the last year. I’m not bragging. Nobody congratulates me for breathing through my nose, so I can’t really take pride in listening to something.


The Postman Always Rings Twice, Double Indemnity, Strangers on a Train, The Talented Mr. Ripley, The Boy Who Followed Ripley, Somebody Owes Me Money, To Kill A Mockingbird, Go Set A Watchman, Farewell To Arms, The Comedy Is Finished, The Cutie, The Colorado Kid, Later, Joyride, Salem’s Lot, Red Dragon, Silence of the Lambs, Psycho, The Boys From Brazil, Son of Rosemary, Rosemary’s Baby, Suspension of Mercy, A Kiss Before Dying, You Let Me In, Into The Water, The Black Angel, Alias Grace, The Sweet Sickness, Hunting Shadows.

I’ll save the Non-Fiction list for another day.

The parents of the bar mitzvah boy rented the section of the movie studio for the occasion. I don’t know why, other than to maybe amuse themselves, they hired two actors, one to play an annoying party
