The Absolute Brightness of Leonard Pelkey celebrated its opening night at Sag Harbor's Bay Street Theater. The solo play, written and performed by James Lecesne (writer of the Academy Award-winning film Trevor), runs through 24.
The Absolute Brightness of Leonard Pelkey comes to Bay Street following a 2015 off-Broadway run at the Westside Theatre. Directed by Tony Speciale and featuring music by Duncan Sheik, the show is produced by special arrangement with Darren Bagert and Daryl Roth.
Based on the best-selling novel Absolute Brightness, the story is told by Lecesne, who portrays every character in a small Jersey Shore town where a young boy goes missing.
