The writer and performer of such stinging monologues as Sex, Drugs, Rock & Roll, Eric Bogosian returns to the stage to skewer everything from pop culture to religion in this striking return to the stage. Portraying a series of characters that include a salesman who may just be Satan and a shockingly amoral Hollywood producer, it seems that any and everybody is fair game for the sharp-tongued satirist -- and in the post-9/11 era where paranoia runs rampant, Bogosian provides a brutally honest but shockingly entertaining alternative to the mainstream mindset.
