Sintesi dell'editore

A married couple's relationship is tested when they find themselves serving as attorneys on opposite sides of the same headline-making case. The fireworks displayed in the courtroom follow Adam and Amanda Bonner home, creating a wildly witty portrait of love and work. This story took its inspiration from a real court case. Based on the original 1949 "battle of the sexes" film starring Katherine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy, directed by George Cukor.
(P)2004 L.A. Theatre Works

Recensioni editoriali

If you're expecting the Spenser Tracy/Katharine Hepburn classic battle of the sexes, you'll be disappointed. But Adam Arkin and Anne Heche make this version their own. Married attorneys Amanda and Adam Bonner find themselves on opposite sides of an assault case, with Amanda defending a woman who shot her philandering husband. Heche and Arkin make this comedy brassier, faster, and less sophisticated than the original, without losing a laugh. This is a first-rate ensemble production with a polished supporting cast, especially Amy Pietz as the gun-toting wife, Marvin Kaplan as the droll court clerk, and Annabelle Gurwitch as the cheating husband's sweetie. The topping on the hilarious antics is the zippy 1940s' musical interludes.

"Meaty and juicy and comically nourishing!" (The New York Times)

Great adaptation of a classic!

I love the movie "Adam's Rib" with Spencer Tracey & Katherine Hepburn so was a little dubious about buying this adaptation. I'm so pleased I did! It's a most enjoyable rendering of this play featuring wonderful performances by Adam Arkin & Anne Heche and a talented supporting cast.

This is a story of the age-old battle of the sexes and the double standards society has regarding the roles and rights of men and women. Although the original was written back in the 1950's, the material is still delightfully witty. While our social values have changed in many respects, this play highlights some issues where there is still inequality between men and women.

This one is definitely worth a listen!

Fast paced, comical drama.

This play is short and enjoyable, and the cast were wonderful. Was going to listen to just a small amount but wound up listening to all in one sitting because it grabbed my interest and didn't let go.
