Get Out Revolution Newspaper - NY, NJ, Conn

Monday, May 21, 2007 Preparation for Revolution!

At a moment when much of humanity finds itself in a living hell, when the horror of the U.S. occupation of Iraq threatens to escalate into a war against Iran, and when the future of the planet itself is threatened, Revolution newspaper must be out there much more boldly and much more broadly—exposing what is going on, revealing why, and pointing to a revolutionary solution in the interests of the vast majority of humanity.

Spalding Gray Stories
IFC Center
323 Sixth Ave.,
New York, NY 10014 at W. 3rd St.
Spalding Gray is having a Tupac moment. The dry-witted monologist’s tragic 2004 suicide—he struggled with depression since a debilitating car crash in 2001—hasn’t stymied audience demand for his singular storytelling. Currently running at the Minetta Lane Theatre is Spalding Gray: Stories Left to Tell, a selection of his work curated by his wife Kathleen Russo and performed by a rotating cast of actors. This event (Spalding Gray Stories) operates as a sort of companion piece: Russo will be on hand with film director Steven Soderbergh to present a screening of Gray’s Anatomy, the movie version of the late great raconteur's solo show about alternative medicine. — Amos Barshad
