The Prisoner of Second Avenue

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Neil Simon

Narrated By: Various Performers

Publisher: LA Theatre Works

Date: January 2000

Duration: 1 hours 38 minutes


Neil Simon takes a good look at apartment life, career and role reversals, a nervous breakdown, and the love, torture, care, or inertia that somehow keeps a couple in a relationship for many years. At points, it’s laugh-out-loud funny; at other times, it offers sensitive insight into the human condition. Fast-moving dialog with nonstop Simon quips and jokes performed extremely well by two fine actors: who could ask for more?

An L.A. Theatre Works full-cast performance featuring Annie Abbott, Lorin Dreyfuss, Richard Dreyfuss, Betty Garrett, Sharon Madden and Marsha Mason.

    I didn't think this was that funny. Maybe it's just not my kind of humor. To me it just seemed like people yelling at each other.

    This was fantastic! I laughed so hard at times. Knowing the actors you can picture them and their facial expressions which only adds to the hallarious show. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is married and needs a good laugh
