Dallas — The bad news: The second season of AT&T Performing Arts Center's Off-Broadway on Flora series has a cancelation for one of the most anticipated shows that was on the season: Benjamin Scheuer's The Lion. The good news: It's been replaced with a performance by one of the great playwrights and solo performers (OK, he acts in a lot of other stuff too) of the past 35 years: Eric Bogosian.

Bogosian's Bitter Honey — The Best of 100 (Monologues) runs in the slot previously occupied by The Lion, Feb. 11-13 at the Wyly Theatre.

Here's more on Bogosian, the show and the series from the ATTPAC news release:


The nonprofit AT&T Performing Arts Center announced today that tickets for Eric Bogosian: Bitter Honey – The Best of 100 (Monologues) will go on sale Friday, December 18 at 10 a.m. In his first live performance outside of New York since 2001, the  Obie award-winner and Guggenheim Fellow will be performing four shows February 11 through February 13 at the Wyly Theatre in the Dallas Arts District. This show is a presentation of the Center’s 2015/2016 OFF BROADWAY ON FLORA season.

Between 1980 and 2000, Eric Bogosian wrote and performed in six full-length solo shows Off-Broadway, garnering him three Obie awards, the Drama Desk award and the Outer Critics Circle Award. Last year, Theatre Communications Group published the full collection of monologues, (numbering about one hundred) in 100 (Monologues). “Bitter Honey” is a nightly performance of a  dozen of those monologues picked at random during the show, from the 100,  resulting in a unique show every night. 

Eric Bogosian replaces The Lion, previously scheduled for February, due to unforeseen scheduling issues. In April, we’ll present GHOST QUARTET, a song cycle about love, death and whiskey, with music and lyrics by two-time OBIE Award winner, Dave Malloy. The season culminates May 12-14 with THE INTERGALACTIC NEMESIS – a live action graphic novel created by Jason Neulander, Austin’s internationally-acclaimed writer, director, and producer. 

Three-show mini-subscription packages remain available for this 2015/2016 OFF BROADWAY ON FLORA season. Center Members get access to the best available tickets.  Call Membership Services at 214-978-2888 or go to to join. Center Membership presale begins Monday, December 14 at 10 a.m.
