Two Excellent Performances of a Great Trilogy
I enjoyed Brighton Beach Memoirs and Broadway Bound was superb. But Biloxi Blues just didn't get the performance it deserved. It lacked both sufficient humor and also depth. The story is excellent but unrealized in this performance.
The Eugene Trilogy has always been a favorite when I was in my teens & twenties. I decided to pick it up in audio and it didn't fail! It's still wonderful & the performances were just as amazing.
