Before we continue our journey on Kevin's superhighway of life, let's take a short detour through time and space on the Spacey Time Machine.
When Kevin was a boy, he used to go to the theatre to kill time between his math and science classes at school. He used to stand outside the stage door and wait for the actors to leave so he could speak with them.
He was never happier than when one of his idols would stop for autographs and pictures. One of his fondest memories was of the great Katherine Hepburn.
Kevin idolized her. She was appearing in a play near his home. Day after day he would wait by her car with a bouquet of flowers he bought with money he made from selling his hair. He dreamed of the day he would meet her.
Unfortunately, it wasn't her car. In fact, it was also the wrong theater. But Kevin never forgot the thrill of anticipation he felt when he grabbed his autograph book and ran out the door.
He dreamed that one day he would be a great stage actor and he would be the man leaving the stage door into the arms of his adoring fans.
Many years later, Kevin would fulfill that boyish dream through hard work and looking great in Armani.
But Kevin also had a secret. A secret he told no one for fear he would be laughed at, ridiculed, scorned. Turned away by the very theatre people he would grow to love and respect. A secret he only told his mother and his dear high school friend Mare Winningham.
Kevin wanted to revolutionize the ticketing system on Broadway!
