Fast-paced comedy performed by two actors. Charlie, a meek movie buff, is mistreated by his cheating girlfriend, abused by his overbearing boss, and misled by his sleazy “best friend”. After a particularly soul-squashing day at work, Charlie has an epiphany. He is Kevin Spacey ... Well, not THE Kevin Spacey, but his weak movie characters. Charlie resolves to follow in the footsteps of “Verbal” Kint and Lester Burnham by undergoing a dramatic transformation. He will be more like ... Al Pacino.This metamorphosis triggers devastating and hilarious confrontations, as Charlie turns the table on his oppressors.


Seeking (both roles are available (i.e. not yet offered and accepted)):

Charlie:

Actor in this role should be well-studied in the films of both Kevin Spacey and Al Pacino. A convincing Pacino impression is a must. In the first half of the show, Charlie adopts the voice and mannerisms of Spacey’s weak characters (e.g. Lester Burnham, “Verbal” Kint, John Williamson, etc). He is awkward, sweaty and weak. In the second half of the show, Charlie completes a “180” and emulates the bravado of Al Pacino, with elements of his performances in “The Godfather”, “Carlito’s Way” and “Scent of A Woman”. As Pacino, Charlie is confident, loud and confrontational. Charlie also briefly impersonates Jack Nicholson.

Actor 2:

Actor must be versatile,as heplays all other characters in Charlie’s life. Actor must be adept at physical comedy and quick character-changes (including the development of distinct voices and mannerisms). Actor must be able to convincingly portray both Charlie’s miserable, cheating girlfriend and his sweet, caring love interest. Other notable characters include quirky office workers, the back-stabbing best friend, the effeminate bagel barista and theconfining boss. Actor will use physicality and, in some cases, small character props to denote character-changes.
