Chances are, if you survived middle school, you probably were forced to play seven minutes in heaven, a game that trapped two hormonal adolescents in a closet for seven minutes of pure nervous tension, excitement, comedy, and drama. If only we could bottle the energy of these improvised closet encounters and take it to the stage...
Cue, Space 55. The 2013 Big Brain Award winner for Performance Art invites you to partake in some theatrical chaos as it celebrates its seventh anniversary of 7 Minutes in Heaven. This summer series show gives an eclectic batch of performers seven minutes each to express their creativity on stage, be it through song and dance, sketch comedy and cartwheels, or pie-throwing and pantomime. Hate it or love it, each show of the unexpected is broken down into a brief seven minutes. The “anything-goes variety show” returns to the stage at 9 p.m. Saturday, June 15, at Space 55, 636 East Pierce Street. Tickets are $10. Visit www.space55.org.
Saturdays, 9 p.m. Starts: June 8. Continues through June 29, 2013
