Eric Bogosian

Author and actor Eric Bogosian explains why he left the text of Talk Radio essentially unchanged for its current Broadway revival, but made more significant rewrites in subUrbia for its revival at Second Stage last fall; shares why he was perfectly happy to pass the role of Talk Radio's radio host Barry Champlain on to Liev Schreiber; recalls the genesis of his acclaimed solo shows, including Sex Drugs Rock & Roll and Drinking in America in the 1980s and 90s; and frankly declares why, after a lifelong passion for theatre, he has turned to writing novels.
