Elizabeth D'Onofrio to direct "Talk Radio", 2.27.10
By Chris Silk

"Talk Radio" opens March 11, to star J. Mitchell Haley - [shock jock]

Casting info for the next Laboratory Theater of Florida production, Eric Bogosian's "Talk Radio," is out.

J. Mitchell Haley will take the lead role, supposedly based in part on Howard Stern's rise to the top of the New York City radio charts. "Talk Radio" was written in 1987, as "shock jock" radio started to become more common.

Please note that this show will run six days only, March 11, 12, 13, 18, 19, 20, all performances at 8 p.m. at the Sidney and Berne Davis Art Center in downtown Fort Myers. For tickets, call 239-333-1933.

The show will be directed by Elizabeth D'Onofrio, sister of Vincent D'Onofrio, although they seem to be playing that on the down-low. She has been blogging about directing the show on her personal Web site. Full article

Barry Champlain, radio call-in host extraordinaire, has a malicious, abusive, downright nasty way of dealing with his invisible audience and the world at large. An indignant crusader, Champlain is a man who sees through all of the lies and hypocrisy and "tells it as it is."

Eric Bogosian's Talk Radio examines the lives of Barry Champlain, the host of Night Talk, a popular Cleveland radio talk show, as well as numerous callers, his engineer, operator and both his executive and assistant producers. Popular local actor J. Mitchell Haley is Barry Champlain.

"This decadent country needs a loud voice; and that's me," Barry tells his listeners, "and it's a cry, a warning for anyone who fears the madness and petty dictators that rule America 's airwaves."

"Imagine Lenny Bruce deciding to become popular talk-show host- and you begin to have an idea of the whiplash intensity and black hard-edged cynicism of Talk Radio."The New York Times.

Under the direction of Elizabeth D'Onofrio for The Laboratory Theater of Florida, Talk Radio plays March 11, 12, 13, 18, 19, 20, at 8 pm at the Sidney and Berne Davis Art Center, 2301 First Street, Fort Myers River District.
