I'm not very familiar with Katharine Hepburn's life, so this play was quite interesting...and very funny at times. Kate Mulgrew gives a brilliant performance, even though it's only an audiobook.

Die großartige Kate als die einzigartige Katharine:

Als große Bewunderin von Kate Mulgrew und Fan von Katharine Hepburn war ich auf dieses Theaterstück welches hier als Hörcd aufliegt natürlich sehr gespannt.

Dieses für Kate Mulgrew konzipierte Stück zeigt eine "junge" und ein "gealterte" Katharine Hepburn und Kate Mulgrew spielt nicht sondern sie ist Katharine Hepburn. Sie passt ihre Stimme perfekt dem Alter an und man meint das Original zu h

I adore Katherine Hepburn and consider Kate Mulgrew a tremendously talented actress. I can’t think of a better actress to play Hepburn than Mulgrew. So it’s easy to see why this one-woman show starred Mulgrew.

For me, one-(wo)man shows often feel like little more than vanity projects, a way for actors to challenge themselves and not have to share the stage. Tea at Five, entertaining as it is, doesn’t escape that niche. It has some wonderful lines and insights into Hepburn, but it’s more a biograp

Listened to this two act play about Katharine Hepburn. It was based on the original New York production. Thank goodness, I did not spand money for a theater ticket and that I got the recording from the library. Kate Mulgrew did an excellent job impersonating Ms. Hepburn. After listening....I had less or perhaps no respect for Katharine Hepburn. Certainly would not want to have her as a friend.

Kate Mulgrew is fascinating to listen to and really sells the part - I thought I was listening to Katherine Hepburn herself.

This is a play based on the life of Katharine Hepburn. It's pretty short, but I really enjoyed it. I've always been fascinated by the great Kate.
