Tony Award-winning director Kenny Leon is back at it again! The Broadway director was highlighted earlier this month as the Keynote Speak for Broadway & Beyond, a virtual panel for BIPOC Stage Managers, and has now been named the Senior Resident Director for the Roundabout Theatre!
The role of Senior Resident Director gives Leon the opportunity to participate in the season selection of plays and musicals, but also lead the search for bringing more BIPOC directors and creatives to Roundabout’s company. His accolades of creating a space for Black performers continue with him being the Co-Founder of the prestigious August Wilson Monologue Competition.
