Description

The body of Polynices, Antigone's brother, has been ordered to remain unburied by Creon, the new king of Thebes. Antigone defies the law, sealing her fate. Originally produced in Paris during the Nazi occupation, Anouilh's Antigone was seen by the French as theatre resistance and by Germans as an affirmation of authority.

Jordan Bridges as Haemon/2nd Guard
Dominic Fumusa as Guard
Francis Guinan as Creon
John Hansen as 3rd Guard/Messenger
Alan Mandell as Chorus

A classic is given a fabulous update!

I picked up this play because I am currently directing Antigone by Jean Anouilh (but a different translation). I wanted to get an idea of how this story was changed from the original by Sophocles. And I was so delighted to find the adaptation fresh, new and alive. The LA Theatre Works' actors do such a stellar job that while I was listening to the play I found myself closing my eyes to imagine the how the actors where moving on stage. If you are a lover of myths, classics, and/or theatre then you MUST listen to this play.

Truly a masterpiece!

I can't recommend this play enough! It is incredibly deep in its ideas and its emotions and there is just enough humor to keep it from being depressing. The actors are all fantastic and their voices fit their roles perfectly. You won't regret buying this one.

An excellent performance of a tragic tale

Antigone is one of the great Greek tragedies, and this reimagining by Jean Anouilh is excellent - historically known during WW2 as a performance which fuelled the French Resistance (through the strong-willed Antigone) and the Nazi occupiers (through the role of the king and the play's notions of obedience to society's laws). This performance stands out as being sophisticated, well produced and excellently cast. It will reward multiple listenings, and sustain your interest over those repeated hearings. Go ahead, Antigone's tale awaits in a new and vibrant form.

Antigone

I was expecting this to be a translation of Sophocles and discovered it to be a different version. Very disappointing.

Don't read if you are looking for the original

Not the Original Antigone. IT's an adaptation performance and I'm bummed I downloaded it.

Annoying

Annoyingly performed. Raising ones voice doesn’t mean passion. It just means you’re talking loudly.
Very American.
