The downer French philosopher E.M Cioran once remarked that Western civilization has become a mass of listless people, wedged between lonely billionaires and the homeless. Thats something to keep in mind during Sex Drugs Rock & Roll by Eric Bogosian, a new production at Fort Lauderdales Sol Theatre that has nothing nice to say about the modern world.
Sex Drugs Rock & Roll is a succession of ten monologues. Theres a drugged-up panhandler in a subway car, a washed-up rock star on a talk show, a phony self-made man showing off his swimming pool one by one, examples of human flotsam wash up on the stage and soliloquize. A survivor of the ΄60s generation rants perhaps rightly that the United States is ruled by malevolent televisions, computers, and supermarket checkout stations.
