New York Premiere of RED ANGEL Set for Theatre Row's Studio Theatre; Performances Begin 2/27
Kirby Productions presents the New York premiere of RED ANGEL by playwright Eric Bogosian ("Talk Radio," "subUrbia") directed by Feliziano Flores with performances beginning February 27 at Theatre Row's Studio Theatre (410 West 42nd Street) in Manhattan.
Eric Bogosian's RED ANGEL puts a new spin on the age-old game of cat and mouse. When David Blau - famous writer and guest professor at an elite college - meets pretty, young grad student Leena, the tables turn on his seduction and he gets caught in an unfamiliar struggle for power. In this carnal and unforgiving play, Bogosian levels the playing field in the battle of the sexes.
Directed by Feliziano Flores ("4:48 Psychosis," "Moon On A Rainbow Shawl"), the cast of RED ANGEL features Drew Anthony Allen (as David Blau), Stefanie Karis, Jimmy Joe McGurl, and Krissy Garber (as Leena).
The design team for RED ANGEL is David Rubin (set designer), Sarah Burke (lighting designer), and Ruth Gersh (costume designer).
Eric Bogosian is best known for writing and starring in the play and the film adaptation of "Talk Radio."

In addition to Talk Radio, Bogosian has written several acclaimed full-length plays including "subUrbia," "Griller" and "Humpty Dumpty."
