ABOUT

LIMITED ENGAGEMENT AND FULL EXTENDED PRODUCTION COMING AUGUST 2019 AND BEYOND, STAY TUNED

 

Le Blanc is a non-linear full length play with elements of music, art distillation, light design, and dance. Our show follows the rags to riches (back to rags) autobiography of the world infamous, unapologetically Black, openly queer, political, and talented (fictional) character of Wellington "Isyss" Le Blanc. 

 

Through a series of interviews and vignettes, we explore Wellington's life from his humble beginnings as a motherless child in the Foster/Adoption system of California, to his sexy exploits as a serial monogamist with a diverse selection of male and female lovers, all the way through his unconventional outlook and relationship with  HIV/AIDS, and right into his underground rise to notoriety on the NYC gay ballroom scene as a member of the “House Of Le Blanc”. What lies beyond his rise to mainstream success as a commercial dancer will be sure to shock as audiences witness his metamorphosis into an infamous public figure and "criminal".  

 

The show explores race, intimacy, sexuality, relationships, as well as our American judicial, health care, and law enforcement systems from a Black, All American, queer perspective.  

 

Le Blanc was a selection for the Negro Ensemble Company's Emerging Playwright Festival 2016, did brief developmental residency with The Muse in Brooklyn back in 2013, and most recently had very successful set of preview performances at La Mama Theatre in NY, NY and BRIC ARTS MEDIA in BK in 2016/2017.

From the producers of the upcoming full length feature Shades Of Queer, The Off Off Broadway show Colours, and the critically acclaimed BRIC ARTS MEDIA TV series SubUrban Underground, we present Le Blanc.
