Edgar Oliver: Slow Boy
Photo credit:  Pavel Antonov

Confessions of a slow and solitary wanderer in the city,  poems, music and monologues.

Edgar Oliver started out performing at the Pyramid night club in the early 1980's.  From 1988 to 2001
he wrote and staged a series of autobiographical plays  premiering a new play almost every year in the Club at LaMama.  In recent years he has written and performed a series of one man shows that have won much critical acclaim.  This past fall Edgar performed three of these one man shows  "East 10th Street", "In the Park" and "Attorney Street" as a trilogy at the Axis Theatre.


"... sweet and sinister... a judiciously austere production directed by Randy Sharp... Mr. Oliver is a living work of theater all by himself."  Ben Brantley, New York Times

"...Oliver's a genius, and dispossessed. He's the James McCourt of the American stage, a gay man not inebriated by but still prone to dreaming about Poe... He's a frightening performer, so utterly himself that you can't compare him to anyone out there, nor can you compare his work to the synthetic or stupidly crafty stuff that passes as theatre nowadays. Oliver, by example, reminds you that theatre first began as a way of making poems live, and gives voice to stories that couldn't be told any other way."  Hilton Als, The New Yorker


"In the Park' manically enchants with gruesome, erotic brevity... what makes this Walser-esque daisy chain of pastoral vignettes cohere is Oliver's perverse enthusiasm...  the monologue's lyricism makes all his obsessions seem equally compelling..."   James Hannaham, The Village Voice

 Downtown's intimate supper-club Pangea is the ultimate in alt, playing home to some of the best in alt cabaret. The New York Times recently called it "a bohemian oasis not unlike the fabled Max's Kansas City from days gone by."
