Description

It's London, 1879, and the hapless members of the Explorers Club must confront their most lethal threat yet: the admission of a woman into their hermetically-sealed ranks. But the intrepid Phyllida Spotte-Hume turns out to be the least of their troubles, in this hilarious farce starring members of the original Broadway cast.

An L.A. Theatre Works full-cast performance featuring Jack Cutmore-Scott, Carson Elrod, David Furr, John Getz, Martin Jarvis, David Krumholtz, Lorenzo Pisoni, Jennifer Westfeldt, Matthew Wolf.

Directed by Kate McAll. Music composed and orchestrated by Laurence O'Keefe. Recordings produced by Mike Croiter and Laurence O'Keefe at Yellow Sound Lab for L.A. Theatre Works.

Includes a conversation with essayist, novelist, and cultural critic Eileen Pollack.

The Explorers Club is part of L.A. Theatre Works’ Relativity Series featuring science-themed plays. Major funding for the Relativity Series is provided by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation to enhance public understanding of science and technology in the modern world.

  • (4/5)
    What a fun, silly yet substantial listen! The production was a joy, and the content satisfying.
  • (3/5)
    This was fun and humorous, with all the standard farcical elements, but I think some of the visual humor was lost with the audio
  • (3/5)
    The Explorers Club is a farce in which a scientific society in Victorian England is presented with its first female candidate for membership. The level of humor is juvenile, and the sexism and racism are too overdone to be funny. Some of the humor is apparently physical, which doesn't translate well to an audio format. The most worthwhile part of the recording is the 20-25 minute concluding interview with author Eileen Pollack, who talks about her undergraduate experience as one of two female physics students at Yale.

    I didn't know anything about this play when I started. This full-cast recording by the Los Angeles Theatre Works was one of this past summer's SYNC offerings & they are generally good but otherwise I went into this blind. Within minutes, I was laughing out loud -- I found this play, set in 1879 London, hilarious! I would love to see it on the stage but this audiobook was excellent.
