Joe Hanrahan performs
THE WORST OF ERIC BOGOSIAN
"We thought WAKE UP AND SMELL THE COFFEE would be Bogosian's
last solo, and we wouldn't be doing him again. Then we noticed Bogosian
was performing THE WORST around the country. We contacted his agent,
who sent our history along to Bogosian. Eric got back to us and
said he usually doesn't let anyone else rearrange his stuff, but
since we've done him so much he'd give us a shot. He approved our
mix of monologues, and we've very pleased to be the first Company,
other than Mr. Bogosian, to perform this collection of work."
"We like the fact we're doing this show in a lot of different
places, including the new Commonspace in the Grand Center area,
and Tech, right near Downtown. And we're really excited about performing
at Blueberry Hill. It's a great venue and you can grab a drink before
or after the show. We appreciate Joe Edwards' support of theatre
in the Loop, and we'd like to contribute to its awareness and growth
in that neighborhood."

of "The Worst of Bogosian"
"...wildly vulgar and shockingly comic, an electrical storm of modern sensibilities
bursting over American life."
