TALK RADIO is Extended Into the New Year at Theater On The Edge
Theater On The Edge is extending its run of Talk Radio by Eric Bogosian, through Sunday, February 16th. The dramedy stars theater ensemble members Marco DiGeorge, Adam Minossora, Elaitheia Quinn, and Christopher Ivers alongside a large ensemble cast. Directed by Allan Whitehead, Talk Radio has been receiving glowing reviews and has sold out its initial run of the show, prompting a need for additional performances.
Talk Radio is a full-length play originally written in 1987 by Eric Bogosian, and later developed into a movie starring the author. Following the movie, Bogosian re-envisioned the play and created an adapted version which opened on Broadway in March, 2007.
Talk Radio tells the 1987 period story of Barry Champlain (Marco DiGeorge), Cleveland's controversial radio host known for insulting the lost souls who call into his show to sound off, trying to manage this crazy Friday-night show along side his controller Stu (Alex Jackson), engineer Spike (Christopher Ivers), and producer Linda (Elaitheia Quinn).
Now, Barry's show has the chance of going into national syndication and his station manager (Christian Wienker) is afraid that Barry will say something that will keep this from happening. This, of course, makes Barry even more outrageous.
Theater On The Edge is known for its cinematic style, including hyper-realistic set design and in-depth performances, and has received much acclaim during its first three seasons.
Director Allan Whitehead says, "Theatre On The Edge is a special place. It could be the intimate, detailed setting, the extreme devotion of the entire crew, the blood, sweat and tears of everyone involved... but every day magic happens; amazing things happen; life happens!"
Marco DiGeorge says, "It has been a privilege working with such passionate individuals who are always striving to push our performances to the edge. I am grateful for the opportunity to bring Barry to life!"
Tickets on sale now at www.TheaterOnTheEdge.org and prices range from $19 to $26.
