Lady Luck is a Whore

The night kicks off at the Studio Theater located in Times Square and after retrieving the tickets, ascending the escalator to the third floor, rustling around and finding comfort, the enthusiastic anticipation remains restless for the show to begin. A few minutes later the lights re-appear, as you are cordially invited to witness Leanne Linsky’s fun filled, random and entertaining former life in Las Vegas before relocating to the Big Apple.  While seated on a chair, she plucks at her ukulele and introduces her presence with a catchy and melodious monologue and it goes something like this:

“Shouldn’t we all get a long like Rodney King, and like MLK, we should all have a dream? And, then there’s Ted Kaczynski who goes to extremes. Then there was Shannon who picked on me, she was a big bowl of bully potpourri, living in fear was a guarantee, I’m telling you she was a big, humongous a**h***. Then Shannon died and the future not so bleak, I can wake up in the morning and look forward to my week. They say her daddy issues made her special and unique, let’s call a spade a spade she was an a**h***.

However, a big barrel of caution though before you subscribe to the madness that exists, Leanne dishes out the dirt in an unfiltered, clever and well thought out manner  while providing endless humor as we ping pong between the past and present stages and events of life. Additionally, in the interim the audience shares moments of enlightenment with Leanne while adding levity as she proclaims a call for help and seeks answers with an omnipotent power above. Leanne allows us to partake in her personal odyssey while working at a gun store, undergoing not one but two divorces, her “first time,” and the transitions in between relationships and friendships that bring her to the current reality as a New Yorker.

The performance rides through the joys, shocking disappointments, highs and lows that we experience and sometimes take for granted that their presence are presented to highlight important lessons to prevent repeating them in the future. Additionally, her performance is the consequence of following her heart and pursuing her acting career as she renders a “farewell to Corporate America,” as this promotes a magnitude of cheers and courage from one creative person to another. In conclusion, this was a great masterpiece and it would be more than an honor to attend Leanne’s future performances.
