Editor reviews

This is the first performance from L.A. Theatre Works that I have listened to since we added the well-regarded producer of audio drama. (I quickly moved on to a second.) After years of digesting audiobooks and tons of NPR, I enjoyed the change of pace of an audio play. The Sisters Rosensweig features the familiar voices of Jamie Lee Curtis, Tony Roberts, and JoBeth Williams, and the flawless script of Pulitzer Prize-winner Wendy Wasserstein. (Teresa C.)

Summary

This delightful Broadway hit chronicles three Jewish sisters from Brooklyn as they gather in London to celebrate a birthday: a brilliant banker who has given up on romance, a suburban mother who moonlights as a radio talk show host, and a travel writer who wants to write her serious book. Perfomed by a full cast starring Jamie Lee Curtis and JoBeth Williams.

Critic reviews

"It is fast paced, quite clever, and often hilarious." ( Library Journal)
"This biting portrayal of three Jewish sisters from Brooklyn captivates listeners from the first humorous lines to the final applause for the stellar cast." ( Booklist

funny and fun

This is very enjoyable listening and I laughed at all the funny characters and what they had to say. The different actors portraying the different characters are all excellent. It's quite different than an audiobook because there is music and sounds and dramatic interpretation of the parts. It tells about the sister's lives and loves and is excellent in every way.

dated play full of pretentious characters

Ugh! This play I just found annoying. The characters were pretentious, most of them had that dated, artificial way of speaking and all that standing around tossing not so funny bon mots and not that interesting, cliche-ridden reflections on womanhood. I wanted to like it as Wendy Wasserstein is considered one of the great 20th century writers on femininism. But this play with its oh so prententious characters, lame jokes and moldy themes was a real slog to get through.
