WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Le Blanc is a non-linear full length play with elements of music, art distillation, light design, and dance. The story uses the American foster care/adoption, child welfare, and adult judicial system as a backdrop to tell the rags to riches, demise, and redemption of a fictional world famous dancer and choreographer. Through a series of interviews both spoken and acted out, we explore the main character's life from his humble beginnings as an orphaned child born in the state of California, to his underground rise to notoriety on the NYC gay ballroom scene as a member of the "House Of Le Blanc", to his rise to mainstream success as a commercial dancer, to his metamorphosis into an infamous public figure and criminal on death row for murder. The stories of his life are woven together by exploring his most defining relationships.
