Utah theater company tells a female post-war story in ‘Spark’


If you ask Adriana Broumas Farber why she joined the U.S. Marines in 2007, she’ll repeat the flip response she offered to military brass: “Temporary lapse of insanity.”

Her long answer is just as interesting, as it provides an understanding of the authenticity Farber brings to the role of a 20-something female veteran, Lexie Gilmord, struggling to adjust to civilan life, in Pygmalion Productions’ regional premiere of “Spark.”
