Bay Street Theatre is pleased to announce a ONE NIGHT ONLY performance of words by one of Sag Harbor's most renowned storytellers, Spalding Gray. Spalding Gray: STORIES LEFT TO TELL will be presented on the Saturday of Thanksgiving weekend, November 28th at 8pm.
While the words are Spalding's very own, the show itself was conceived by Spalding's widow Kathleen Russo along with Lucy Sexton, who also serves as the show's Director. As one of the most irreverent storytellers of our time, Spalding Gray was known best for his hilarious and moving monologues. Without fanfare or fancy effects, he delivered observations directly and expressed life's foibles in a way that resonated with his audiences and kept them wanting more.
His work now lives on in Spalding Gray: STORIES LEFT TO TELL, featuring an ensemble blockbuster cast including, Kathleen Chalfant, Michael Cunningham, Hazelle Goodman, Ain Gordon and Mercedes Ruehl. Each actor speaks directly to the audience, as Spalding himself would have done, focusing on a different aspect of his life, including adventure, love, career, family, and even includes writings from private journal entries. In addition to the selections from his diary as well as excerpts from other pieces of Gray's unpublished works, STORIES LEFT TO TELL also includes bits and pieces from some of the shows that made him a household name-Swimming to Cambodia, Monster in a Box and Life Interrupted to name but a few.
Tickets for Spalding Gray: STORIES LEFT TO TELL are on sale now and going fast. Tickets are $35, $50 and $65.
