Robert Falls directed the production, which began previews Feb. 15 and officially opened March 11. The show will have played 121 performances and 29 previews at the end of its limited run.

Talk Radio follows an acid-tongued, late-night talk-show host whose program is about to be picked up for national syndication. The work first played in New York in 1987 at Off-Broadway's Public Theater with Bogosian starring opposite a cast that included Linda Atkinson, John C. McGinley and Mark Metcalf. It was adapted by Bogosian and director Oliver Stone for the 1988 film.

Filling out the characters who live in the world of talk-show host character Barry Champlain (Schreiber) are Peter Hermann ("Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" and "United 93") as producer Dan Woodruff, Stephanie March ("30 Rock" and "SVU") as producer/love interest Linda MacArthur and Michael Laurence (The Rainmaker at the Arena) as friend/foil Stu Noonan.

Sebastian Stan ("The Covenant") plays a young punk caller, along with Christine Pedi (Little Me, Forbidden Broadway), Barbara Rosenblatt (The Secret Garden), Adam Sietz (Barefoot in the Park), Marc Thompson, Cornell Womack (On Golden Pond), Christy Pusz, Oliver Vaquer and Kit Williamson, who play a number of characters on the radio show (not seen onstage until the curtain call).

The design team for Talk Radio includes Mark Wendland (set), Christopher Akerlind (lights), Laura Bauer (costumes) and Richard Woodbury (sound).

Jeffrey Richards, Jerry Frankel and JAM Theatricals produce.

Tickets to Talk Radio at the Longacre Theatre, 220 West 48th Street, are available by calling (212) 239-6200. For more information, visit the official website at talkradioonbroadway.com.
