A Spalding Gray Matter at the Clurman Theatre
The New Group (naked) presents A Spalding Gray Matter, written and performed by Michael Brandt, directed by Ian Morgan, at the Theatre Row's Clurman Theatre from the 3 - 27 May 2006.
A Spalding Gray Matter explores the curious story of Spalding Gray's illness, disappearance and assumed suicide through the eerily parallel events of author Michael Brandtï¿½s own experience. Melding the theatrical structure of Gray's monologues with his own sense of the ridiculous, Brandt seeks to understand what happened to Gray as a way to define what happened to himself. The result is a story about the consequences of illness and recovery on the human psyche.
The production has set design by Peter R. Feuchtwanger, costumes by Kristine Koury, lighting by Jason Lyons and sound by Matt Sherwin.
