    Avis de l'équipe

    The timing and expression of talented stage actors bring this play's subtle allegory home for better or worse, and usually better. Alan Alda plays Flanders Kittredge without self-consciousness. He is familiar with the phrasing necessary for this dramatic work whose essence relies on what the characters hear. Hunter-Gault makes a spoken metamorphosis from punk to prodigy, and his role is a difficult one that requires fooling other players and the listener. A full cast rounds out the production, and the live audience leads the way as we follow their amusement and their silences. The short play makes for a brief encounter, but the cast captures its charm and gravity for as long as it lasts.

    Description

    In a Fifth Avenue apartment high above Central Park, a weathy art dealer and his wife are trying to interest a moneyed friend in a $2 million investment when an unexpected young guest arrives - and changes their lives forever. Veering effortlessly from hilarity to pathos, this dazzling play was lauded by The New York Times as "transcendent, magical, and a masterwork." Performed by a full cast starring Alan Alda, Swoosie Kurtz, and Chuma Hunter-Gault.

    Good but not great.

    I wanted to give this one five stars, but it just misses the mark. Even on stage, it is a very difficult play to make work, and this audio production, despite the best efforts of an expert cast, especially Swoosie Kurtz, never quite leaves the page. The play, by "House of Blue Leaves" author Guare, has interesting things to say about celebrity, art, loneliness, and the lives of the not-quite-super rich, and has several good monologues, but it never fully comes together, in my opinion. All that being said, this production is well worth hearing, both for Guare's thoughts and Kurtz's excellent vocal work.

    Ummm

    Alan Alda was Alan Alda... but if you can make it passed that you will enjoy the show.

    Magnificent! I loved the actress who played Ouisa

    I loved the actress who played Ouisa and Laul was absolutely amazing too. I much prefer this Paul to the one in the movie. I imagine him with dreadlocks. The play itself is very profpund and perfectly written.

    Compelling Satire

    Even though the Upper Eastside dialogue seemed a bit too writerly to be real, I found this to be a compelling story once the charming imposter entered the picture. Lots of twists and turns and a long, philosophical monologues on art, the imagination and Catcher In the Rye that may or may not be your thing.

    Thought provoking & funny theatre, makes you think

    This play is one which will make you chuckle out loud at times as the story unfolds, and will leave you thinking. It's an exploration of society, friendship, trust and honesty which will stay with you long after the end of the performance. The performances are solid, nuanced, and the play loses nothing in its transfer to an audiobook. Go ahead, immerse yourself in this drama about modern life, art, film and friendships.

    Six Degrees of Genius

    Would you listen to Six Degrees of Separation again? Why?

    I have listened to this performance a dozen times already. It is WONDERFUL and alive.

    Who was your favorite character and why?

    None of the characters are particularly endearing but Swoozie Kurtz breathes life into Ouisa Kitteridge.

    Any additional comments?

    It is beautifully done and although it seems to race at time it is the complete play done completely with love.

    Strangely relatable and moving

    Sound quality could be better and due to missing stage directions it's sometimes a bit hard to follow.
    The actors did a marvelous job and had me right there with them even when the plot lost me. Listen to it, you're sure to love it.
