“I just directed an extremely successful play in London. Two hours before the curtain went up, I discovered that my father, a Jew like myself, and his brother were economic spies for Hitler.”
Andre Gregory is an American theater director and actor. During the 1960s and 1970s, Gregory directed a number of avant-garde productions developed through ensemble collaboration, the most famous of which was Alice (1970), based on Alice in Wonderland. In 1975 he directed Our Late Night, the first play produced by Wallace Shawn, which began a long working relationship between the two (He most recently directed Wallace Shawn’s Grasses of a Thousand Colors at the Royal Court in London). Gregory would go on to travel in Poland on an invitation from Jerzy Grotowski. He developed a number of experimental theatrical events for private audiences, and then spent several years in a variety of esoteric spiritual communities (such as Findhorn) developing an interest in what could be called New Age beliefs.
