I usually pass over posting items like this because our prolific and peripatetic interpretor of Captain Ross is always somewhere, doing something. If it's not writing a new play then it's answering questions about it from the audience at a local premiere. A driven social activist/artist, Bogosian also tends to do many fundraising events.
This one, though, is in the near future and might be well worth coming into NYC on October 7, 2008 -- especially if you live in the surrounding northeast U.S.
Called "Revenge of the Bookeaters" the event will be hosted by "The Daily Show's" John Oliver. This annual benefit to support NYC schools' writing programs will also feature a performance from Paul Simon; a short story reading by "This American Life's" Ira Glass;" and Bogosian and friends reading a new play by controversial novelist Jonathan Franzen ("The Corrections"). Plus, as they say, more.
