(5 stars)

a must! in particular, I speak of lord Tennyson's the falcon, start out and throughout making you split your sides laughing and finishes off in an intense powerful way. it's a story that I said wow to throughout and mostly to the very end, I read a lot and this short one act is INTENSE and the actors audible speaking are phenomenal, just wow! it gained purpose as plays are often hard to grasp and I imagined listening audibly with professional actors that the feeling would shine through and it has pulled of wondrously to no fail! how does one rate genius storytelling?! beyond five stars for sure! ( hint go to Gutenberg press and download the books in text form - free - and hear and see visually the text to get the most out of each audiobook ! )

Madame butterfly is really yellowface, hilarious.

(4.5 stars)

The Asian (Japanese) accents are hilarious in "Madame butterfly", some of the other acts/stories are quite funny but read with a little lost in the reading where the text is funny but read super straight.
