“The Absolute Brightness of Leonard Pelkey” at Bay Street Theatre

July 18, 2016 @ 8:00 pm - July 24, 2016 @ 7:00 pm

The Absolute Brightness of Leonard Pelkey


The Absolute Brightness of Leonard Pelkey is written and performed by James Lecesne, music by Duncan Sheik, directed by Tony Speciale, and is produced by special arrangement with Darren Bagert and Daryl Roth. One of the greatest storytellers of his generation, James Lecesne (the writer of the Academy Award-Winning film Trevor), 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. A luminous force of nature whose magic is only truly felt once he is missing, Leonard becomes the unexpected inspiration for a town as they question how they live, who they love and what they leave behind.

Showtimes are July 18 at 8 p.m., July 20 at 2 p.m., July 21 at 5 p.m., July 22 at 8 p.m. and July 24 at 7 p.m.

Tickets range from $25 to $85 and are available online here.


There will a special benefit on Saturday, July 23 at 5 p.m. and partial proceeds will benefit Live Out Loud! Live Out Loud inspires, nurtures and empowers LGBTQ youth to build a successful future by connecting them to positive role models and affirmative experiences in the LGBTQ community.

Tickets to the benefit range from $500 to $1,000 and are available online here.
