"I’m in love with the possibility of having it all. I have surrounded myself with great people and the conversations I’ve had stay with me. Oprah [Winfrey] told me, “Kevin, you are constantly challenging yourself because you are trying to be the best version of yourself.” She said I had that disease. Some people want a challenge, some people want to do more and grow, some people are business minded to conquer all and have all. Not because they are greedy, just because that becomes a hobby in trying to be great. I want to be great." - Kevin Hart

Theater Most Absurd : Southwest Fine Arts

Theater Most Absurd : Southwest Fine Arts

The first act is THE POT BOILER by Alice Gerstenberg. The play takes a satirical look at egotistical actors, tyrannical directors and playwrights who think a dash constitutes witty dialogue. The action takes places during a rehearsal where the actors strive for the heights of ham, and the writer has no idea where it is all going. The second act is THE ACTOR’S NIGHTMARE a satire by Christopher Durang. Do you remember those dreams about a test we didn't study for, in a course we didn't know we were taking, ten years after graduation? Imagine if instead you are an accountant pushed onstage to perform Hamlet in the place of the greatest Shakespearean actor the American Stage has ever known! Welcome to George Spelvin's hilarious nightmare.
