Adam's Rib - Garson Kanin, David Rambo, Ruth Gordon

I just finished listening to the 2004 L.A. Theatre Works production of Adam's Rib, a stage version of the Katherine Hepburn/Spencer Tracy movie. It was terrible in so many ways--the adaptation to stage (Garson Kanin and Ruth Gordon must be rolling over in their graves), the direction, the lead actors' attempts to sound like Hepburn/Tracy but then again to not sound like them. The only redeeming aspect was the supporting cast who were marvelous.

 

I've listened to a number of LATW productions and this is by far the worst.
