In the lounge This is Not a Monologue (About Spalding Gray) Vinny Mraz
About This Show
A show on the Staten Island Ferry inside of a downtown theater about life, loss, and what happens after we die, This is Not a Monologue About Spalding Gray, is a personal examination of heroes and role models and how they shape our lives. As passengers on the ferry we all make the trip across the river, the ferryman as our guide to the other side, a chance to reunite with those who have left us and to say goodbye to those we leave behind.
