Sex drugs and rock and roll elizabeth
Sex, Drugs, Rock and Roll by Eric BogosianMr. Bogosian is a hilarious wit: there is one line after another that you will quote to friends. He is a born storyteller with perfect pitch for the voices of various ethnic, racial and economic backgrounds. Using every powerful means available to a theatre artist, he shakes the cages of a complacent country engulfed by homelessness to ask just exactly who, if anyone, is home. -Frank Rich, New York Times
Greatly and bilaterally talented... spiky, stinging, caustic without cauterizing. And funny. -John Simon, New York Magazine
Scabrously funny... a dervish of a performer, ricocheting off the walls of the male psyche. -Boston Phoenix

The actress, 21, talks leaving the world of Nickelodeon for some hard rock on Denis Leary's new show. I saw so much of myself in the character, so I was over the moon and I had to get it no matter what. We have really good chemistry together. Going into the show, you have to be ready for anything. You said you saw a lot of yourself in your character.
External image. As a young boy, Dury nearly died after being stricken with polio. Though the ravaging disease would leave him permanently disabled, however, it would also instill him with the drive and perseverance to become one of the most influential musicians of his generation. The life and times of eccentric and controversial entertainer Ian Dury played by Ian Serkis. A film that I can only describe as brilliant.
