Spalding Gray debuts a new monologue as part of the Virginia Museum's Fast/Forward series.
Swimming into Richmond
The bad news: Performance artist Danny Hoch has canceled his Oct. 29 performance to open the Virginia Museum's Fast/Forward series because of a conflict with a new movie contract.
The good news: Spalding Gray will take his place, delivering his new monologue "Morning, Noon and Night" two days before its New York debut at Lincoln Center. The monologue covers some of the events in one day in his life with his family in a small town in eastern Long Island.
Gray, an internationally known writer, actor and performer, has created a series of 18 monologues that he has performed around the world, including "Monster in a Box," and the Obie-award-winning "Swimming to Cambodia," which he performed at the Virginia Museum in 1990.
Tickets for the seven-event Fast/Forward series are $98. Tickets to Gray's performance only are $21. Call
