Straight from its Broadway debut, New City Stage is thrilled to bring the first regional production of Eric Bogosian's revised 1987 hit to Philadelphia. On the eve of his show going national, caustic Cleveland shock-jock Barry Champlain is fielding calls from his adoring fans and using their own idolization of him against them. As the parade of typical nut-job insomniacs call in throughout the night, the conversation gets crazier and Barry's commentary gets harsher. A unique theatrical expression of American media culture, this play garnered several Tony Award nominations and a Drama League Award for Distinguished Performance for lead actor Liev Schreiber.
