Well, it is available on Amazon. As it turns out, it’s been out since November, but for some reason I expected it to show up as a download on Audible, not an audio book on Amazon, so I didn’t discover it there sooner. Anyway, here is the link: Side Man (Library Edition Audio CDs) (L.A. Theatre Works Audio Theatre Collections).
And the description:
A Tony Award winner for Best Play, Side Man delves deep into the postwar New York jazz underground through the life of a celebrated musician and his dysfunctional family. Warren Leight used his own experiences as the son of a jazz musician to create Gene, a talented but emotionally incompetent trumpeter whose pure devotion to music comes at the expense of his relationship with resentful wife Terry and their self-sacrificing son, Clifford. A L.A. Theatre Works full cast performance starring Frank Wood as Gene, Garret Dillahunt as Clifford, Christine Lahti as Terry, Kyle Colerider-Krugh as Ziggy, Kevin Geer as Jonesy, Joseph Lyle Taylor as Al, Stephanie Zimbalist as Patsy, and live sound effects by Tony Palermo.
And yeah, if you’re still mourning Lights Out, it’s the same Warren Leight.
