Recent quote from Kathie Russo on plans for Book, Play & Film About Husband's Life
I'm doing a play based on his journals that will tour Britain, called There Are Stories to Tell. It comes to Glasgow next March. It's a cast of five people that represent a part of his life - the adventurer, the journal reader, the family man, the lover and the career person. "It will also be a film; Whoopi Goldberg is one of the producers on the film. John C. Reilly is gonna be in it, we think, as The Family Man and John Leguizamo as The Lover and Whoopi as The Career Person. Lucy Sexton and I worked on the script and we're starting to get the money together."

100% of the proceeds from Stories Left to Tell presented by the Barrow Street Theater directly supports The Spalding Gray Award

The Spalding Gray Award is an annual commissioning award created by Performance Space 122, UCLA Live, and Kathleen Russo.

The Spalding Gray Award supports gifted writer/performers who fully realize both aspects of Spalding's legacy, who are fearless innovators of theatrical form, who reach into daily experience and create resonant, transcendent work that makes us all bigger, wider, wiser and, somehow, more than we were when we entered the theater. The Award Committee is Vallejo Gantner (P.S. 122), David Sefton (UCLA Live), Philip Bither (Walker Arts Center), Ben Harrison (The Andy Warhol Museum), and Kathleen Russo.
