However, they've branched into audio dramas as well. It says Audible Studios is the publisher, so I don't know if it's a company they've put together or one that they fund or what.
So now, there's also an audio drama version as an Audible original , which recently became one of the free titles for Audible subscribers to enjoy.
Oz has of course been adapted for audio drama several times. The BBC has adapted it twice, while there were quite a number of short adaptations on children's records, there's been multi-reader audio books that try to do a hybrid approach of audio book and drama, there was Classic Wizard of Oz , the Los Angeles Children's Museum adaptation from , the Monterey Soundworks adaptation, the Big Finish adaptation, Colonial Radio Theater adapted it and the next five Oz books with Patchwork Girl still reportedly on the way and most recently, Crossover Adventure Productions' The Chronicles of Oz, which has adapted the first three Oz books in a free but welcome manner.
So there's quite a few to compare it to as you're not wanting for choice of audio dramatizations of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.
Probably those last two are my preferred audio adaptations that I've listened to the most. So, there's this new version, which runs over four hours long.
It pretty much captures each episode from the book with a lot of the dialogue left intact, sometimes being rewritten, sometimes embellished, but very often expanded.
And I do mean expanded. There's no narrator and the characters talk a lot. Way more than they should. The adaptation is by Paul Magrs, who's penned a number of Doctor Who audio dramas as well as his own original fiction.
Characters will talk and talk and talk, dragging out scenes for far longer than they need to be. One needs to remember with Oz that Baum loved the theater and was an actor himself, and much of the dialogue in the Oz books comes from the fact that he got how to have characters communicate.
I'm not saying the dialogue in the books stand on their own, but when they're expanded outside of filling in information the narrator isn't saying, it begins to feel tedious.
The story starts right off with Dorothy telling Uncle Henry about the cyclone. Lydia West sounds like a grown woman trying to emulate Judy Garland a bit.
The actress is very private about her life, but believed to be in her mid to late 20s. The actress is a woman of color, and Uncle Henry sounds like an African-American man, so perhaps this production attempts to make Dorothy and her family people of color, but when you're working in audio only, it can easily get lost.
Dorothy's age is also hard to determine. The first slight mention has a Munchkin exaggerate and call her a woman, but she and other characters say that she is a little girl.
She doesn't sound like one. Many of the people of Oz speak with accents derived from the UK. I'm generally fine with this as Oz is another country.
The Scarecrow sounds like he's either from north England or Scottish, while the Tin Woodman sounds like a London guy, while the Lion has a bit of Bert Lahr along with his British accent.
Broadbent does well as the Wizard, while the Winged Monkeys sound like they're from Brooklyn. This brings me back to the writing.
Clearly, this is a UK-based production. However, Dorothy, our lead character, is supposed to be American. Generally, this is okay, but eventually, Dorothy refers to her friends as "you lot" and even says "sounds a treat" when she hears about having to take the trip to Glinda's.
These are not phrases a Kansas girl would be saying. He mentions Lurline enchanting Oz and also Oz maps, with a joke making a deep cut about how Professor Woggle-Bug put the Munchkin Country on the wrong side of the map of Oz he created, but to make up for it, the Munchkins look at their maps upside down.
This moment also leads to Dorothy wondering why Toto can't talk, and it's just assumed that he hasn't been in Oz long enough for the magic to catch up to him.
He winds up talking just before Dorothy returns home. The Deadly Desert gets a lore change in that it makes you lose your memories before finally claiming your life.
I wondered if Harold was replacing Boq, but no, when Dorothy and Toto head down the Yellow Brick Road, they stop at Boq's house, meaning we have two very similar sounding scenes back to back.
And both of these Munchkins just talk way too much. Get on with the story already! When the Tin Woodman tells his story, moments from it are dramatized.
Again, there's no need for this except to make this adaptation take even longer. There's no similar treatment for the Scarecrow or Winged Monkeys' story, so it's an uneven presentation.
An odd addition comes after the farmhouse where the travelers stay before reaching the Emerald City. Dorothy reveals the man's injured leg has actually been transformed into an octopus tentacle after he delivered a letter revealing bad news to the Wicked Witch of the West.
This doesn't really add anything to the story, and there's no resolution of the man's transformed leg after she's destroyed.
Dorothy is immediately skeptical of the green glasses, with her almost rejecting them when she re-enters the city after defeating the Wicked Witch.
Later, the Scarecrow says he'll outlaw them. The Winged Monkeys basically tell Dorothy how the Golden Cap works when they capture her, and when they drop her off with the Wicked Witch, they ask the Witch to "leave a review.
Later, the giant spider actually speaks. That's really all I have to say about the story adaptation without getting into minutia.
The music is nothing great, with some old style moments of violin music to indicate changing scenes or passage of time. Colonial Radio Theater's Jeffrey Gage and The Chronicles of Oz 's Tony Diana wrote some really good music for those productions, so in comparison, this is quite lacking.
The sound effects weren't bad, but nothing remarkable, either. If you need a way to kill four and a half hours and have a subscription to Audible, you can listen to it for free.
Labels: audio book , review. Monday, April 27, Farewell to Podbean. While Podbean was all right, Anchor offered me more for less. Now instead of paying to host the podcast, I can actually monetize it.
So far, I haven't monetized any episodes. The Podbean plan we had allowed us to upload only MB of data a month. This limited some of our podcasts, sometimes forcing me to make cuts to certain episodes so they'd fit in the limit.
Anchor allows me to make episodes as long as I want. As of this writing, I have cancelled the Podbean account, so many of the old podcast links and embeds will not work anymore.
However, the episodes are all still online. If you were subscribed to the podcast, your feed should automatically update.
If you want to link to the podcast, here is the new link. Thank you! Find out behind the scenes information, some spoiler talk and the secrets behind this podcast adaptation of the Oz series.
