I enjoyed this production more than I thought I would. I liked listening to all of the different callers and how the radio person responded. The lead actor who played Barry was very engaging and believable. I did not care for the actor in the...continued

This is the fifth time that we have gone to ATSF, and love to watch Christian Phillips. The first act was excellent, highlighting his acting skills in dealing with the callers. Didn't feel the love quite as much in the second act, but still...continued

We loved Talk Radio. It's advertised as funny, and I wouldn't really call it funny. It's edgy and anxiety producing, and incredibly well acted. All the actors were excellent, but Christian Phillips was better than excellent--and he became the...continued

Great acting, as always, by Christian Phillips.
There was a time when shock jocks on talk radio were new and unique, but not anymore.

Hanging up on callers or making them feel bad, or people who call in to talk radio who are unhinged, crazy or...continued

Terrific acting by the lead actor... I just wasn't feeling Begosian's script.

Great show, great acting, wonderfully entertaining. Theatre is small so every seat is good.

One star for the lead actor- he's great. The rest of the script is full of holes and leaves the viewer wondering "What is the point?" When actors have a part that breaks down the fourth wall and you aren't watching Shakespeare, you know you're in...continued

The play was well directed and acted. The only negative in my mind was the script. So is it that surprising that the people who call into talk radio are shallow, and the MC can be a jerk in real life too?

This savagely funny, often sad, slightly terrifying drama takes place during one broadcast of "Night Talk," a call-in show hosted by manic host Barry Champlain, superbly played by Christian Phillips. We hear the voices of callers who are fueled by...continued

Great acting! Chris Phillips is amazing as usual but the rest of the cast is solid too. I am bringing my friends next week.

Great play and great performances. Especially the lead. I liked him better than Eric Bogosian in the movie.

Actors Theatre continues to produce top quality shows. Despite a technical difficulty which was handled professionally; the show was very finely acted, to say nothing of a set that framed the action very well and focused out attention. The lead...continued

I had never heard of Eric Bogosian before seeing this play, but I'm glad that I went out! My friend and I had so much fun! The dialogue was great. All of the callers sounded distinct and had such interesting short conversations with the host. I've...continued
