'If you build it they will come. If you want diversity in the theatre, you have to build that diversity from the ground up. You can't just expect it to happen.' Actor Kingsley Leggs is speaking with quiet intensity about his passion for theatre, music, and dance and his belief that theatre must not only please, but also educate and empower its audiences. These are beliefs he has honed in a long career which has taken him from his native St. Louis to Broadway, regional theatre, and television. As he recounts his story, he is taking a break on what he calls 'a three show day' at Maine State Music Theatre, where he is in the last week of performances of The Full Monty and set to open June 25th in Sister Act. He has just finished the morning rehearsal and will soon head over to the theatre for a matinee and evening show. For all the obvious demands of this schedule, he appears relaxed and animated.

Andrea N. Carr Releases THE TREES OUTSIDEAndrea N. Carr Releases THE TREES OUTSIDE
by BWW News Desk - Jul 8, 2015

Often as human beings we find ourselves on the outside looking in on a given situation: a friend's problems with work, the death of a distant relative, even watching police rush to a major car accident. However, one of the most difficult aspects of humanity is being able to look within ourselves and be honest about what we see there. The Trees Outside is an introspective look at those forces affecting the character Angel Harper, from Andrea N. Carr's debut novel Family Tree the Novel: Family Tree. Here, she not only helps readers look introspectively at Angel's life through her poetry and previously edited material, but she reveals the naked truth about her writing as a medium for self-expression. 'This is a must read for all readers new or familiar with Family Tree the Novel. Miss Carr bears her soul and that of Angel's in a truly enlightening short work.' - M.J. Moores, OCT Book Details: 'The Trees Outside' By Andrea N. Carr Published: 06/01/2015 ASIN: The Trees Outside Pages: 19 Genre: Literary Fiction, African-American Fiction, Philosophy About The Author: Andrea N. Carr is a born storyteller. Her soul carries the passions and disappointments of a nation and her writing bares faultless witness to the truths of our time. Her profound insights into the human condition echo Alice Munro, The Color Purple and J.D. Salinger's Catcher in the Rye. With pace that has been compared to Raymond Carver. This new indie author has been writing emotionally driven, self-exploratory stories since 1999 from her homes in Orange County. Growing up in Huntington Beach, she later moved to Los Angeles California after leaving a Mental Health Career, as a Psychiatric Technician for the State of CA. Miss Carr now resides in Joshua Tree, CA after living in Malaga, Spain where she finished her debut title. For review copies, author interviews, or more information please contact: Andrea N.
