This newest production from the Colonial Radio Theatre is true to the original book by Robert Louis Stevenson. Granted it has been many years since I read the book, but the story seems unchanged. The mood in this show is very dark and you get a sense of dark London streets and the claustrophobic laboratory. The performances are all top notch as is the editing. The other thing that sets this apart from other colonial radio shows is that there is not much music, which actually adds to the mood (music is used strategically, to great effect). I was excited when this show was announced earlier this year, and the final result does not disappoint.
I've listened to several productions of The Colonial Radio Theater, and so far this is the best one by far. The cast is small, with each actor giving an excellent performance. I've noticed in some of their other productions that some of the actors' performances are a bit stilted, as though they are reading their lines, but there is none of that here. The sound effects are just right, also -- enough to lend color and atmosphere but with not a single "dead spot" such as is typical of all the other CRT dramatizaitons I've listened to.

This is a short performance, at only about an hour and a half, but psychological and atmospheric and excellently done.
I love the adaptations of the classics that CRT does, and this one is a terrific addition to the catalog. Its not a kicked up, modern take of the old story but a faithful adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson's morality tale, with CRT's Jerry Robbins in the title role. Fine performances by all, with typical fantastic production values that is the trademark of CRT. Big thumbs UP!!!!
