Talk Radio Broadway Show Schedule
Tue & Sat 2pm
Tues through Sat 8pm
The play is a portrait of a controversial late night show host, who is preparing to expand his popular show from Cleveland to a nationwide audience. The setting of the story is in Studio B of radio station WTLK in Cleveland, Ohio in the spring of 1987. This was an Off-Broadway sensation in 1987, and is expected to be a major show on Broadway, this season. The show previewed on February 15, 2007 and after 29 previews, opened at the Longacre Theater on March 11, 2007 for a very limited engagement up to June 24, 2007.
Talk Radio is written by Eric Bogosian and directed by Robert Falls – the Tony Award winning director of Death of a Salesman, and Shining City. Liev Schreiber – who won a Tony Award for his performance in Glengarry Glen Ross, and who has acclaimed performances in Macbeth, Hamlet, Henry V and other classic plays to his name - plays the controversial late-night radio host Barry Champlain.
Though it is very early days, with only 9 performances until March 18, 2007, Talk Radio with its no-holds-barred portrait of a radio talk show host, is on the way to being the talk of Broadway.
The current show is the revival of the 1987 show, which created a sensation at the Off-Broadway venue - Public Theater. It was, then, considered a very provocative play, and was on from May 17, 1987 to November 29, 1987.
Critics consider the Talk Radio Broadway show to be wickedly funny, and a commentary on our national attraction to misery and scandal. Bogosian has slightly touched up the text for this revival production, but has not made it too contemporary and has tried to keep it in the late 1980s.The Theater
Designed by architect Henry B. Herts, the Longacre Theater got its name from Longacre Square, which was what Times Square was known as, then. It was built for Harry Frazee – the Broadway impresario – who is now more famous for being the owner of the Boston Red Sox, who sold Babe Ruth’s contract to the New York Yankees.
The Longacre Theater opened on May 1, 1913. Originally, it was built with a seating capacity of 1,400, but was later reduced to 1,091 seats. The exterior of the theater was built in the French Neo-classical style, whereas the interior is in a Beaux Arts style.
The Longacre Theater belongs to the powerful Shubert Organization, who have a total of 17 Broadway theaters under their umbrella. The revival of Bogosian’s production is currently showing at Longacre Theater for a limited run. Talk Radio Broadway Show Tickets
