The sun has set on Morning, Noon and Night. Exactly one week after it was announced that Spalding Gray's latest solo piece -- which ended its run at Lincoln Center Theater's Vivian Beaumont (after previews from Oct. 31, and an opening on Nov. 8) on Jan. 10 -- would dawn again, this time at Off-Broadway's Union Square Theatre, producer David Binder's office told Playbill On-Line the run was not going forward.
The show was to have played Sundays and Mondays (as it did at LCT) in a ten-week run at the Union Square, the nights when the theatre's current tenant, Wit, is dark.
A spokesman said the cancellation was due to a scheduling conflict with Gray. No alternate run is being planned.
Morning, Noon And Night covers the Long Island life of Gray and features tales of his family: Kathie, Marissa, Forrest and Theo. In the storytelling tradition of Joyce's "Ulysses," the monologue covers the events of one day in Gray's life while he searches for meaning and substance in his existence's traditional structure.
