Check Out: Kenny Leon Interviewed in Atlanta Magazine

Kenny Leon, who’s True Colors Theatre Company recently put on an amazing production of Thornton Wilder’s Our Town, was interviewing in Atlanta Magazine about his impending move to Broadway:

Hometown guy Leon travels to New York to direct Washington in this month’s Broadway revival of August Wilson’s Fences. He says the two-time Oscar winner — who will play burned-out Pittsburgh trash collector and former Negro League hitter Troy Maxson — will get no special treatment when rehearsals start in March. “I’ve been doing that for years,” says Leon of the push-up ritual, as he digs into a plate of stir-fried chicken and rice at Saigon Basil, next to the theater’s makeshift rehearsal studio on Piedmont Avenue. “I did that with Phylicia Rashad when we did Gem of the Ocean on Broadway.”
