The Rivalry (Library Edition Audio CDs) [Audio CD]

The Lincoln/Douglas debates.

I absolutely love Paul Giamatti.  Anything he does is excellent.  He knocked it out of the park.  The CDs are a recreation of the Lincoln Douglas debate for the Senate seat which was ultimately won by Douglas.  Although I make no secrets about my feelings towards Lincoln, this work, taken from the transcripts of the seven debates gives you a window into what made Lincoln appealing to people.

A L.A. Theatre Works full-cast performance featuring: Paul Giamatti, David Strathairn, James Gleason, Lily Rabe and Shannon Cochran
