The Gospel According to Josh (Rivedal)

IMG_1952 2Yes, I need to work on my recording technique – I’ve never been one for shoving mics in people’s faces, but I guess that has to change – but here’s my conversation with monologuist Josh Rivedal, who brings his solo show The Gospel According to Josh: A 28-Year Gentile Bar Mitzvah to The Players Theater at 115 MacDougal Street in the Village for four shows starting this Friday, May 16.

Josh’s show, developed over the last few years and returning to New York after runs out of town, delves into his struggles with depression and suicide in his family, but it’s hardly a dour show: Rivedal plays a variety of characters, from family members to  Moms Mabley and Elvis Presley, and finds the humor in struggle.
