The play has been particularly popular on the theatrical festival circuit, where it captured everyone’s attention for tightly written and well-paced script, along with its overall production design. Now gearing up for another series of performances, Channeling Kevin Spacey is bound to be a delight for many theatergoers and is poised to be a huge audience draw. Needless to say, Channeling Kevin Spacey tickets are sure to be in high demand.
The story of Channeling Kevin Spacey concerns a young man named Charlie who is down on his luck. Amiable and well-meaning, Charlie is the stereotypical nice guy who gets pushed around and stepped on by everyone from his boss and coworkers to his cold-hearted girlfriend. Due to this, the grief-stricken man likens himself to Kevin Spacey’s character in American Beauty, who suffers from similar circumstances. The plot starts to unfold when Charlie has a particularly horrible day at work, after which he resolves to change his life. His does so by vicariously attempting to emulate the work of another one of his favorite actors, Al Pacino. This is because Charlie feels that he needs to become hard-hearted and intimidating to win the respect that he deserves. What follows is a series of zany hijinks and misadventures, as Charlie struggles to regain control of the havoc that his newfound approach to winning at life, so to speak, wreaks on him.
The first production of Channeling Kevin Spacey premiered at the Winnipeg Fringe Festival in 2008, where it was well received. Thereon, it made several appearances on many theatrical festivals, including The Edmonton Fringe, the largest festival of its kind in all of North America. The current production of Channeling Kevin Spacey is playing off-Broadway. It is directed by Elan Wolf Farbiarz, one of the authors of the show, known for his work in similar plays like The Bible and The Movies. The play stars David Michaels – recognized for his appearances in shows like Cassanova Was a Woman, Next Broadway Star, The Drowsy Chaperone and the national tour of Oklahoma! – in the role of the protagonist, Charlie. Accompanying him is Jamil Chokachi – renowned for his roles in such famous plays as Sweeney Todd, Chess, The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui, Comedy of Errors and A Midsummer Night's Dream – who plays several characters.
The show is being produced by Wolf & William Productions, which is known to be a platform for emerging artists. Providing general management is Jessimeg Productions, whose credits also include the likes of Danny and Sylvia: The Danny Kaye Musical, Zero Hour, Black Angels Over Tuskegee, Don’t Leave it all to the Children and Dietrich and Chevalier: A Musical Love Story.
The show has been received with widespread critical acclaim. At the Winnipeg Fringe Festival, it played to sold-out audiences and won the coveted Best of Fest award. Channeling Kevin Spacey won the same award at a number of other festivals as well, including the 2009 Toronto Fringe Festival. In 2010, the show’s performance at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts' Amaturo Theatre in Fort Lauderdale was also very well-received, causing observers like Backstage magazine to describe the play as "Frantically Inventive!"
Countless other reviews have been equally embracing. The Toronto Star commended Channeling Kevin Space for its "Good chemistry, tight direction and soul-blackening humor make Channeling” and called it “a must-see.” The show was also given five-star reviews by publications like EYE Weekly, CUE Weekly, CBC, SEE Magazine and the Edmonton Sun. Chris Kompanek of TheatreMania praised Chokachi’s multiple-character performance saying “He moves from Charlie's snippy girlfriend to the women he pines after at the bagel store with a natural ease” and compared him to one-time Saturday Night Live alumnus Chris Kattan.
Theatre-goers have also come expressed their love of the show. As he stumbles through his continuing misfortunes – which walk a precariously fine line between comedy and tragedy - the audience is compelled to root for the everyman main character.
