ArtsEmerson: The World On Stage presents And Everything Is Going Fine. Comprised of clips from monologist Spalding Gray’s interviews and one-man shows, this hilarious and intimate documentary follows the life and career of one of America’s most outstanding theatrical artists. Steven Soderbergh—acclaimed director and friend of Gray’s—pieces together the warm, moving, and revealing clips of Gray’s work and life to form a sort of posthumous autobiography celebrating the memory of this one-of-a-kind performer. The delicately chosen clips weave together a final monologue of sorts for Gray, remaining at once fascinating and enlightening but retaining an air of mystery.
Special appearance by Spalding Gray’s wife Kathie Russo (one of the film’s producers), son Forrest Gray (composer of the score) and Mike Daisey following the screening.
