The Absolute Brightness of Leonard Pelkey - YouTube | Thespie

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. In honour of Pride Month, 92Y in association with Daryl Roth and Darren Bagert, presents a limited online release of this 2016 performance.
