SHADES OF GRAY - the art & life of Spalding Gray
By Spalding Gray
Spalding Gray sat onstage at a table and talked, and told his stories, “poetic journalism” about his life, and with charm and wit and vulnerability, he drew you into his world of awe and reflection and pain and humor. He opened his life and heart for inspection, revealed himself as someone just like you, who did what he did and then wondered about it, out loud, in public, at a table, on a stage.
Since his tragic death in 2004, his work and his words have been brought out to his public in many ways, and with SHADES OF GRAY, Theatre Gigante presents as much of Spalding as we can, for your viewing, thinking and feeling pleasure. Kathleen Russo (Gray's wife) will attend, and speak at special events.
