A great example of true audio *theater*, this production combines strong writing, great acting and original music in a raw portrayal of a Kerouac we'd rather not believe existed. As someone who read "On the Road" and bought into the Kerouac mythology in my teenage years, it's a great tribute and a celebration, even in its darkness.
I'm admittedly a radio drama junkie, and I love the on-location recording and crisp effects as much as the story. But even if the idea of an audio dramatization is odd to you, you'll find much to love out of this offbeat honorific. Just be prepared to reaffirm the merits of your mainstream life than to be inspired to ditch it all for a wild ride on the road by the end of it all.
