How was your experience?
"SpaceBar" is a goofy, poignant piece about Kyle Sugarman - a 16 year old high school kid from a family hit by tragedy - who writes a play he is convinced will make Broadway salivate to produce and change the world - at least his world. What's it about? "Humanity" and a bar in outer space. Under the surface, it's about him and his family. Strange characters abound, both in the play and in Kyle's efforts to get the play on stage. Jeremy Helgeson, who plays Kyle, carries the play with aplomb - communicating Kyle's insides - confidence, pain, frustration, and new love. The other cast members inhabit their characters smoothly, connecting with various parts of Kyle and playing off Kyle's experiences and efforts to have his name in lights.
