Now in its second season, the acclaimed Off Broadway comedy Channeling Kevin Spacey siphons belly laughs and joyous groans of empathy in an edgy tale of one man’s struggle to shed his milquetoast. A three-time winner at the Canadian Fringe Festivals, the play follows Charlie (played by David Michaels, a loveless drone who realizes that his life parallels the downtrodden characters of actor Kevin Spacey, hero of the movie Se7en. Stricken with the resolve to abandon his American Beauty doormat persona and become an alpha male, Charlie escapes his doldrums by transforming himself into the nicotine- and machismo-fueled characters of enigmatic actor Al Pacino. Dark comedy abounds as Charlie’s mutation from wispy cuckold to chest-pounding macho man conjures images of Walter Mitty on a steady diet of caffeine, Scarface, and chewed scenery. Built for aerodynamic laughter like a whoopee cushion with jet wings, Channeling Kevin Spacey keeps theatergoers and movie buffs alike in nondissolving stitches.
