Third Avenue Playhouse (TAP) presents its first show of the season, Gray’s Anatomy by Spalding Gray, April 5-22. The play features Doug Mancheski and is directed by Robert Boles.
In middle age, Spalding Gray (played by Mancheski) has entered “the Bermuda Triangle of health,” that place where the body begins to break down in alarming and humiliating ways. His immediate problem is an eye complaint that could be corrected with minor surgery. But for the high priest of high anxiety, nothing is ever minor. And so Gray embarks on a crazed crusade for wellness that takes him from a Native American sweat lodge to a dictatorial nutritionist and, finally, to a gory session with the “Elvis Presley of psychic surgeons” in the Far East.
Gray’s Anatomy will be performed Thursday through Saturday at 7:30 pm, and on Sunday at 2 pm. A pay-what-you-can preview performance is scheduled for April 4 at 7:30 pm. For more information and tickets, visit thirdavenueplayhouse.com.
