The New 35
Rightly so, the evening's most heralded work was the amusing, well-crafted and -acted "The New 35" [written by Leslie Korein]...Voted Best Picture, Best Comedic Short, Best Actress (Korein)...
The Lost Moon Radio
The Lost Moon Radio team once again brings its A-game to the Fringe Fest with [Million Dollar Hair.] Korein’s song [Philosophal] is a riot.
Outrageously funny...his talentless, brain dead daughter January's (Leslie Korein) droll commentary and endless malapropisms throughout is almost as funny as some of the facts she reveals about her dear, departed daddy.
My biggest 'wow' of the show was Leslie Korein as January Waterbed Schonfeld. As far as I'm concerned, she was absolute perfection.
January Schoenfeld [Leslie Korein] is both hysterical and heartbreaking. -Kyla Garcia, Fringe Reviewer
My favorite number of the night, though, had to be January Schonfeld (Leslie Korein)‘s 'Philosophal.' I’m still giggling at the lyrics. Don’t miss it.
Improv trio Nick Kanellis, Peter McNerney and Leslie Korein meld playful physical transformation and careful scenework that delivers an impressively quick and detailed overlap of events in its conclusion.
TRIKE gushes with characters, visceral drama and lightning bolt organic transitions. The product is a seamless improvisational joyride.
This 3 person team is hot! Well-acted, well-staged, and remarkable to watch. All three actors were superb!
Girl Camp is a raucous good time. Writers Marcy Jarreau and Leslie Korein...are in perfect sync with each other as our nascent Sapphics, capturing all the embarrassment and discomfort of adolescence in brilliantly nuanced detail.
Coaching and Workshops
Seeing Leslie's group perform totally changed my basic assumptions of what Improv is. Their patience and full attention to one another's actions and emotions on stage was incredible. They showed how to bring the truth back in an art form that can sometime become all-too campy. Since my experience with them, I have now seriously considered pursuing my love of improv beyond my four years at college.
An amazing improviser and even better teacher.
Working with Leslie was an eye-opener for me. Through close and precise coaching, she trains you to bring out the truth of the scene, revealing the comedy, and sometimes the heart, underneath.
Leslie was a great coach and teacher. There was a new energy at our rehearsals afterwards and we were all inspired to use the new techniques that we had learned.
