Bitter Honey II: LAbyrinth Benefit Reading Of monologues by Eric Bogosian
LAByrinth Theater Company will present a special reading of Bitter Honey II by Eric Bogosian, a benefit evening of more underperformed and never performed Bogosiana, for three performances only, 2 Jun 7pm and 3 Jun 7pm and 10pm, in The Anspacher Theater at The Public Theater. All proceeds will benefit LAByrinth Theater Company.
Eric Bogosian will reach into his archives for Bitter Honey II, and unearth seldom performed monologues from 'Drinking in America,' 'Sex, Drugs, Rock and Roll,' 'Pounding Nails in the Floor With My Forehead' and 'Wake Up and Smell the Coffee' ï¿½ plus some never-before-performed material.
In putting together this special benefit evening, Eric Bogosian said "I support LAByrinth Theater because they're cool, fun, energized, devoted and fearless. They are not afraid to take big chances and make big theater."
Bogosian became a LAByrinth Company Member in 2005, the same year in which he played 'Satan' in Stephen Adly Guirgis's 'The Last Days of Judas Iscariot.' He regularly appears as the referee for 'Celebrity Charades,' LAByrinth's annual gala benefit and, most recently, he read the role of 'Sabbatai Svi,' the false Messiah, in LAByrinth's staged reading of David Bar Katz's 'Burning, Burning, Burning, Burning' at the Barn Series festival 2008.
