Executive summary: My Dinner with Andre

Andre Gregory is a director of experimental off-Broadway plays, but he is best known as an actor, playing himself in Louis Malle's epic of existential angst My Dinner with Andre. In that film Gregory gave playwright and friend Wallace Shawn an honest account of his mid-life crisis, his disappearance for several years of searching, and his subsequent spiritual enlightenment. As a stage director, Gregory received his best notices for a 1970 adaptation of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, and his minimalist production of Anton Chekhov's Uncle Vanya, which was filmed to art house acclaim as Vanya on 42nd Street, again co-starring Shawn.
