The novel's (of course!) better, and the radioplay adaptation may be the best, but consider how mind-bogglingly brilliant those are to gauge where that leaves the play. In a word: FANTASTIC. Entertaining in its own right, makes sense, captures all the essences, a few wonderful media-specific innovations by the playwrights, and a really, really impressive adaptation of a very unlikely source. Kind of want to do a production of it. (Maybe just 'cause I play cello.) The nonfiction story snippet this edition shares of the playwrights' history with the work and Adams himself is also delectable.
