Greg Paroff Directing

Talk Radio in New York

Former Westfield resident Greg Paroff is currently directing Talk Radio at the Producers Club in New York City. The production will continue through this Saturday, May 31.

In Talk Radio, which includes a cast of young actors, playwright Eric Bogosian questions entertainment's purpose in society by exploring a talk show host's personal paranoia the evening before his program achieves syndication.

The playwright explores how artists either accept or deny their insecurities concerning their work. Mr. Paroff said the play is particularly relevant as an exploration of an individual quest for self- knowledge in a politically charged and polarized atmosphere.

The Producers Club is located at 358 West 44th Street between 8th and 9th Avenues. All performances are at 8 p. m. except for Sunday's performance which is will begin at 6 p. m.

For reservations or information, please call (212) 777- 4471.
