Sinopsis:

"Mr. Bogosian is a hilarious wit: there is one line after another that you will quote to friends. He is a born storyteller with perfect pitch for the voices of various ethnic, racial and economic backgrounds. Using every powerful means available to a theatre artist, he shakes the cages of a complacent country engulfed by homelessness to ask just exactly who, if anyone, is home." -Frank Rich, New York Times

"Greatly and bilaterally talented... spiky, stinging, caustic without cauterizing. And funny." -John Simon, New York Magazine

"Scabrously funny... a dervish of a performer, ricocheting off the walls of the male psyche." -Boston Phoenix

Eric Bogosian is one of our most innovative and provocative artists, with a unique gift for portraying the currents and idioms of contemporary society. The monologues in Sex, Drugs, Rock & Roll form a composite picture of the complex, sometimes alarming state of American culture in the 1990s.

One of America’s premier performers and most innovative and provocative artists, Bogosian’s plays and solo work include suburbia (Lincoln Center Theater, 1994; adapted to film by director Richard Linklater, 1996); Sex, Drugs, Rock & Roll, Pounding Nails in the Floor with My Forehead; Griller; Humpty Dumpty; 1+1; Skunkweed; Wake Up and Smell the Coffee; Drinking in America; Notes from Underground and Talk Radio (Pulitzer Prize finalist; New York Shakespeare Festival, 1987; Broadway, 2007; adapted to film by director Oliver Stone, 1988). He has starred in a wide variety of film, TV and stage roles. Most recently, he created the character of Captain Danny Ross on the long-running series Law & Order: Criminal Intent. In 2014, TCG published 100 (monologues), a collection that commemorates thirty years of Bogosian’s solo-performance career.

Review:

From Spalding Gray to Anna Deavere Smith, monologists have become a real power in contemporary theater. Few have had the savage impact of Eric Bogosian, who continues to get inside working- (and formerly working-) class Joes with attitude in his 1990 Monologue of 12 Characters. Among the vivid rebels he incarnates are an artist who resolves to keep his art inside his head to prevent "the system" from commercializing it and an entire group of blue-collar guys whose wedding-eve party for a buddy turns into a merry sleigh ride to hell. The virtuoso piece of Sex, Drugs, Rock & Roll shows a high-powered executive who juggles business partners, enemies, spouse, mistress, and children on a cellular phone, showing each a distinct side of his twisted personality.
