In flipping through the offerings at the Fringe Festival I came across HELP WANTED: A Personal Search for Meaningful Employment at the Start of the 21st Century “An actor fresh out of college and working as a parking lot attendant discovers a powerful inspiration. Spalding Gray’s compelling and deeply personal monologues influence him so greatly that he embarks on a quest — by way of Washington DC — to meet his hero.” and had two reactions
#1: “Ooooh! Wanna go!” which is a result of my love of anything Spalding Gray.
#2: “Um…”This Washington DC premiere”? “Quest by way of Washington DC to meet his hero”? Gray lived in NYC and has been dead for over two years now… how’s that gonna work?”
A little googling turns up some reviews (positive) and explanation, as well as some more tantalizing details. I’ll be at one of these performances for sure.
