Eric Bogosian


“Chekhov high on speed and Twinkies. A Work as ferocious as Mr. Bogosian’s own one-man shows.” -David Richards, New York Times

“A scarifying dissection of youthful disillusion that manages to be both appalling and appealing.” -Newsweek

“Bogosian’s script retains the playwright-performer’s trademark vitriol and hammer wit.” -TimeOut New York

This updated version of Eric Bogosian’s theatrical tour de force, set in a convenience store parking lot, riveted audiences in its Off-Broadway premiere. His rewrites – for a world with cell phones, hip-hop and war-time cultural tensions – render the piece “an American anyplace where everything, yet nothing , has changed.” -- Celia McGee, New York Times

One of America’s premier performers and most innovative and provocative artists, Eric 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.
