Chapter Fifteen: Spotlight on Leta Tremblay

My name is Leta Tremblay and I will play the part of director on this wild ride. I am a director and stage manager currently residing in New York City. In my directing work, I specialize in stylized movement with bold, simple visual and auditory elements. Recent NY directing credits include: Fore-Shadow-Play (also written by Lucy Gillespie!) as part of FOREPLAYS (Galapagos Art Space, Brooklyn), The City That Cried Wolf (59E59 Theaters), 365 Days/365 Plays (FullStop Collective), and 10 Plates (ExPgirl, AD). I also staged a full production of Machinal by Sophie Treadwell while attending Smith College. As a stage manager, I work with many NYC theaters and companies including HERE Arts Center, Cherry Lane Theatre, The Chocolate Factory, NAATCO, and ExPgirl (company member). I am a founding member and Director of Production of FullStop Collective, a New York based theater company devoted to developing and presenting the innovative work of its members. I have trained at the Eugene O’Neill National Theatre Institute, with the Wooster Group, and with the SITI Company.
