In Spring of 2015, Leo directed a stage production of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland with Firebird Youth Theater, a teen-run theater company he founded in 2013, and for which he serves as Artistic Director. The script was an original adaptation of the classic novel of the same name by Lewis Carroll, adapted for the stage by Leo and Thomas Pflanz. The play performed April 17th-19th, 2015, at Roy Arias Theatre, Stage II.

An article by Joanne Rendell about the production was published on Huffington Posts’s Education Section on May 26th, 2015. Visit the article at the link below:

Write A Play! NYC – Ties

Leo’s short play Ties is a finalist in Young Playwrights Inc.’s “Write a Play! NYC” Playwriting Competition 2015. This is Leo’s second play to receive a finalist title in this competition, the first being his full-length play The Internet Island Project, which made the finalists in 2014.

Ties is a stinging and cathartic play, about a very young boy who suffers a great loss. The script tackles the poignant and deeply relevant question of how children can come to terms with the mortality of those around them.
