Kenny Leon has directed a host of seminal stage and screen productions. His work has ranged from Broadway (The Mountaintop starring Samuel L. Jackson and Angela Bassett) to TV (NBC’s The Wiz Live! and Hairspray Live!) to arenas (Alicia Key’s World Tour) to opera houses (Toni Morrison’s opera Margaret Garner) and much more. 

With this resume, it’s no wonder that Kenny’s a Tony Award winning director who this year received the “Mr. Abbott” award for his extraordinary contributions to the field.
