Photo Coverage: Meet the Company of THE ABSOLUTE BRIGHTNESS OF LEONARD PELKEY
THE ABSOLUTE BRIGHTNESS OF LEONARD PELKEY, written and performed by James Lecesne, will shine brighter and longer in a limited 12-week engagement at the Westside Theatre (407 West 43 Street), now beginning performances Saturday, July 11, 2015, at 8pm, and officially opening Monday, July 27, 2015. The company just met the press and BroadwayWorld was there for the special day!
One of the greatest storytellers of his generation, James Lecesne portrays every character in a small Jersey shore town as they unravel the story of Leonard Pelkey, a tenaciously optimistic and flamboyant 14 year-old boy who goes missing. A luminous force of nature whose magic is only truly felt once he disappears, Leonard becomes the unexpected inspiration for a town as they question how they live, who they love and what they leave behind. "Absolute Brightness leaves you beaming with joy." (New York Times).
