Description

A sexually charged and wickedly funny thriller starring Tony Award-winning actor Billy Crudup, Harry Clarke is the story of a shy Midwestern man leading an outrageous double life as the titular cocky Londoner. Moving to New York City and presenting himself as an Englishman, he charms his way into a wealthy family's life as the seductive and precocious Harry, whose increasingly risky and dangerous behavior threatens to undo more than his persona. 

Included with your purchase:

  • Harry Clarke, performed by Billy Crudup 
  • An introduction to and performance of Lillian, an Obie Award-winning play written and performed by David Cale 
  • An exclusive, behind-the-scenes conversation with Harry Clarke director, Leigh Silverman, and David Cale 
  • A post-show discussion with Billy Crudup, David Cale, Leigh Silverman, and Vineyard Theatre Artistic Director Sarah Stern. 

Harry Clarke was originally produced by the Vineyard Theatre, in association with Audible, in New York in 2017. In a rave review of the stage production, The New York Times hails Crudup's performance as "a sly role terrifically suited to his gifts." And The Hollywood Reporter praised Crudup's "tour-de-force performance; effortlessly delineating his multiple characters, switching accents at the drop of a hat."

Critiques

"One of the meta-delights of Harry Clarke is the way it applies the idea of performance to regular life. As Harry proves, we're all actors, working with whatever rickety materials we've got. If only we were all as good at impersonation as he and Mr. Crudup are, we might even be happy." (The New York Times)

"David Cale is a mischievous, deft and engaging storyteller." (Variety)

“Lillian is a luminous embodiment of the ineffable in life, a reminder that even the most mundane existence is shaped by currents beyond comprehension.” (The New York Times)

Come for Harry, stay for Lillian

The writing and both performances are absolutely brilliant. I couldn’t stop listening.
I found the experience of being inside Harry/Philip’s head hard to take at times. It was quite a ride.
I will probably listen to Lillian many times. I found her story to be inspirational and more relatable (maybe because I’m a middle aged woman;)
Again, so well done! Bravo!

Live Theater at Home

I returned to Audible when I learned that live theatrical performances had been added to its selection list. This play is wonderful. The chat with the writer/director/actor is a special bonus. So happy that this great production has been captured and preserved.

Excellent!

Yes! Yes! Yes! This was a fantastic production! Having seen this at the Vineyard Theater, I was truly looking forward to the audio edition. Billy Crudup’s performance was nothing short of amazing! The bonus story of Lillian was also a nice surprise! Bravo!

Ugh - hated it

It's amazing to me how far from others I feel about this story. Billy Crudup was great - absolutely excellent. The story - dull and all over the place. I seriously didn't get it. It's not that its too complex, it just has no direction. I'd love to hear Billy narrate a better story. The end.

Misleading Synopsis

Based on the synopsis I downloaded this book and did not get what I wanted or expected. not my cup a tea at all. I don't like romance awkward love stories. had to stop listening when he started seducing the guy on his fathers yacht.

Perfection.

Absolutely amazing. So glad I was able to see this live. The recording lives up to the live performance. Highly suggest. I have always loved Billy Crudup, but have such a different level of respect for him after seeing/hearing Harry Clarke.

Virtuosic!

Crudup is incredible (so many voice switches, all effortless feeling), but I loved David Cale performing Lillian even more - the story and the writing feel a bit subtler and more real. Definitely worth listening to. The hours in the cold wet subway were swooshed away. :)

Short but brilliant

What did you love best about Harry Clarke?

The story was fantastic. It kept me interested and I haven't stopped thinking about it for days.

Any additional comments?

The story was actually only about an hour. I had this ready for a 3-hour car drive so I was disappointed it didn't las the full time. Hard to pay $15 for one hour...

Crudup is an impressive storyteller

It's one thing to be an actor, but it's entirely another to be a storyteller and rapidly oscillate between characters, voices, and scenes all by yourself. Really enjoyable for this theater fan!
