Leanne Wins an IT Award!

On Monday, September 24 I received the New York Innovative Theater Award for best original music for my score for The Landlord, a Toy Box Theater production written by Jonathan Barsness. I’m particularly excited gaining recognition for this work because it was a big experiment in weaving music as part of the drama, not merely to underscore it. The play deals with one man’s battle with himself, personified by characters representing different sides of his personality, with the music representing his pure emotion, or soul. The award ceremony was Monday, September 24 at 7:00pm at FIT’s Haft Auditorium. Thanks for all your support!
