Right with her was Phillip, I don’t know what Jennifer and Randy were listening to when they panned him, but he was definitely the best male performance of the night, There’s no doubt I would pay to see him wd101124 | personalised name girls wall art sticker - disney baby ballerina little princess, ballet shoes, wand, star live, Both Joshua and Skylar had me “dancing” in my easy chair, Skylar is growing more confident every week and is becoming very consistent in delivering memorable songs, Joshua delivered what was his best performance of the season by far, I rewound the DVR to listen to him again, I liked it that much..
All of the parts, except for George (a wonderfully energized Dan Saski) and Mary (beautifully portrayed by Jenna Stich), are double- and triple-cast. Part of the fun is watching the actors shift from one character to another, especially when the same actor plays two characters talking to each other! The actors creating this bit of insanity are Adrian Altaffer, John Blytt, Jacqui Herrera, Carly Hoskins, Jerry Motta and Briel Pomerantz. Fryer directs with a sure hand, keeping the pacing fast and adding some nice casting bits such as Herrera portraying a man at one point (great deep voice) and 14-year-old Altaffer playing a bank examiner. In addition to the various roles in the radio drama, the cast also performs some very funny 1950s commercials for the audience’s pleasure.

“The Unwinding: An Inner History of the New America” by George Packer. Recommended by Fred Kaplan, War Stories columnist. The New Yorker writer George Packer strives for crazy heights — weaving a crisscross narrative of post-meltdown dreams and nightmares in the style of John dos Passos’ USA Trilogy — and, remarkably, he succeeds. His chronicles of the Iraq war, superb though they were, put on hold the literary ambitions unfurled in his 2001 family-memoir cum political history, “Blood of the Liberals,” but “The Unwinding” marks a return, plus some. His portraits of ordinary and extraordinary Americans in our own time of trouble exude a rhythmic flair, ranging from staccato to elegiac, that bring to mind an Ellington suite. It won this year’s National Book Award for non-fiction, and deservedly so.
