Writer of the Academy award-winning short Trevor, founder of The Trevor Project (a 24-hour nationwide crisis hotline for LGBTQIA+ youth), and stage and screen actor, James Lecesne performs his hit off-Broadway play, The Absolute Brightness of Leonard Pelkey. This live performance of a powerful police procedural comes to life through the artistry of James Lecesne and is accompanied by the original music of Duncan Sheik. James portrays every character in a small Jersey Shore town as he unravels the story of Leonard Pelkey, a tenaciously optimistic and flamboyant 14-year-old boy who has gone missing. A luminous force of nature whose magic is only truly felt once he is gone, Leonard becomes an unexpected inspiration as the town's citizens question how they live, who they love, and what they leave behind.  Brash detective Chuck DeSantis seeks out answers as to why Leonard is missing. Along the way, questions about the teen's sexuality force members of the community to confront their own biases and beliefs. This poetic piece of audio leads listeners down an important path towards understanding and acceptance. The entire town changes forever because of Leonard Pelkey - a character originally from James Lecesne's young adult book Absolute Brightness that inspired the play. This whodunit brims with humor and heart and delivers a deeply important message about love, prejudice, and being yourself.  The New York Times raved that The Absolute Brightness of Leonard Pelkey "...leave[s] you beaming with joy...a superlative solo show...Mr. Lecesne is a writer of wit and keen observational skills, who here unfolds a dark tale that shimmers with the needling suspense you associate with the best police procedurals."  Written and performed by James Lecesne Sound design by Christian Frederickson Original music by Duncan Sheik  Note: The Absolute Brightness of Leonard Pelkey contains adult language.… (més)

September Audible Original:

This was cute and short. This short act play is about the 'bright life of Leonard,' a gay young man who was supremely confident in who he was, but who was killed because of it. I love the 'gumshoe' detective point of view, the mother's prattling always remembering something she forgot earlier, and the circling nature of the point. ( )

Somewhat broad Nu Joisey stereotypes
Review of the Audible Audio edition (2019) of the stage play "The Absolute Brightness of Leonard Pelkey" (2015/16) which was based on the author's original novel "Absolute Brightness" (2008)

James Lecesne's one-man play uses various broad stereotypes to portray the after-effects of a flamboyant LGbTQ youth's life on their community.

A video of a 2016 stage performance at the 92nd Street Y, NYC can be viewed here.

The Absolute Brightness of Leonard Pelkey was one of the free Audible Originals available to members in September 2019. ( )

WOW. I am blown away. This audio book was awesome in a thousand million ways. The author and narrator, took a very serious subject and made it funny, believable and was able to still keep its message true. I had no idea what I would be listening to when I chose this book, seriously, but I am so very glad I did. Very, very, very highly recommended!!! Go read/listen to this book!!! ( )
