Heroes Only

 

Laughter Power:  Boobs and being the dumb blonde.

Weakness:  Sharts and patter songs.  At the same time.

Leslie grew up in North Olmsted with a deep, burning itch to perform that developed while playing in her High School Marching Band.  After that “one time at band camp” (and some heavy antibiotics) Leslie took her talents to Cleveland State University with a full scholarship for Flute Performance.  She performed with the wind ensemble and orchestra but didn’t feel that special something that she used to every time her lips touched her flute.  No longer satisfied by her flute, Leslie took voice lessons and trained to sing opera at the Cleveland Institute of Music.  When she realized her rack was too fabulous and waist was too small for the opera world, she went back to Cleveland State where she completed her degree in Voice.  It was shortly thereafter that Leslie was cast in her first role in Cleveland and met Laughter League commander, Patrick Ciamacco, playing opposite him as his crack whore girlfriend and his Virgin Mary… which was typecasting at its finest.

Leslie has since performed all over Northeast Ohio including Playhouse Square, Beck Center for the Arts, Mansfield Renaissance Theatre, and some little theatre you probably never heard of, Blank Canvas Theatre.  When she isn’t saving Cleveland one laugh at a time, Leslie works as a receptionist for a dentist in Avon.  She lives in North Ridgeville with her two adorable doggies and some guy with a messed up face.  Leslie would like all of you reading this to obeebum ebee bababoo.
