Editors’ Picks: Mister Monkey

A sweet spot between satirical and sympathetic—consistently funny and heartbreaking.

An off-off-off-off Broadway children’s musical about a pet chimpanzee sets the stage for some great listening. AudioFile goes Behind the Mic with narrator Kirby Heyborne as he tells us his take-away on MISTER MONKEY by Francine Prose.

“You need to enjoy where you are at. No matter the situation you are in. You are there for a reason.” —Narrator Kirby Heyborne|
