Along with Wallace Shawn, André Gregory is one of the two principals in Louis Malle's cult classic film, MY DINNER WITH ANDRE. Here Gregory recounts anecdotes and remembrances from his remarkable life. The iconic stage director, writer, actor, and founder of The Manhattan Project, a 1960s-70s avant-garde theater company, delivers smart, clever observations with an actor's perfect timing. From harsh beginnings--never sentimentalized--to a series of adventures--sometimes funny, sometimes not--listening to Gregory is pure delight. A world-class raconteur, he mentions mentors--Grotowski and Stanislavsky--and regales us with stories of friendships--with his wife, Chiquita; Wallace Shawn; and Gregory Peck--sharing intimate moments and emotions with wit, candor, a bit of snark, and a lot of love. This is a non-memoir listeners won't want to end. S.J.H. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2021]
