Alvin Catacutan is a Filipino actor, author, singer, martial artist and stuntman. He has been seen in the TV Movies of the Week “Inside the Osmonds,” “The Crooked E” and “Framed.”
Eric Bogosian (born 1953) is an American actor, playwright, monologist, and novelist. His one-man shows are a minimalist blend of dark comedy, geopolitical commentary, and social realism. When performing on stage, Bogosian generally appears as a series of characters.
Josh Kornbluth (born 1959) is an American comedic autobiographical monologist. Kornbluth’s live and filmed works are almost entirely solo monologues based closely on events and people in his life, his upbringing, and his career. Despite the serious messages and somewhat dry themes his works are all lighthearted and highly humorous.
Roger Guenveur Smith (born 1959) is an American writer, director, and actor. Smith received an Obie Award for his solo performance in A Huey P. Newton Story on stage. In film, Smith has collaborated with Spike Lee and has appeared in several motion pictures, including School Daze, Do the Right Thing, Malcolm X, Get On the Bus, He Got Game and Summer of Sam.
“Jane Martin” first came to the attention of American theatrical audiences with a collection of monologues that premiered in 1981 at the Actors’ Theatre of Louisville. There is some question as to the identity of this mysterious writer. “Jane Martin” is widely believed to be a pseudonym. She has never made any public appearances or given an interview; no photographs have ever been published. Her Keely and Du (nominated for the Pulitzer Prize) won the 1994 American Theatre Critics Association New Play Award.
George W. S. Trow (1943-2006) was an American essayist, novelist, playwright, and media critic. He worked for The New Yorker magazine for almost 30 years, and wrote numerous essays and several books. He is best known for his long essay on television and its effect on American culture, “Within the Context of No Context”, first published in The New Yorker and later released as a book. This was one of only four times that The New Yorker has given an entire issue to one piece of writing.
