    I lived in Atlanta when Kenny Leon worked for the Alliance Theatre. The Alliance was a wonderful community theatre and I loved Kenny's energy. I was attracted to this book because I wanted to know more about him. I enjoyed reading take You Wherever You Go. You can feel Kenny's positive...

    3.5. A few good insights, an interesting career and family history, but not enough theatre how to for me. ...

    Tony Award-winning director Kenny Leon's uplifting and inspirational memoir traces his success back to his Grandma Mamie (who raised 13 children) and his single mother (who gave birth to him when she was 15 years old). "I was raised by two amazing women," he writes, "and I live in the ...

    It was wonderful to read about Kenny?s journey to learn about his craft. The relationship between him and his grandmother Mamie and his mother kept me turning the pages. There are poetic parts. There are parts that show you why he?s a director and not a writer. Nonetheless, this me...

    Our friend Kenny looks so young that it's hard to reconcile that he's done so much great work for so long. He bops around in his sports shoes like he's a forty-something! He has done some amazing things in his long and storied career. All fueled by the wisdom, prayers, love and enco...

    Memoirs are a black, ugly, velvet things, the memoir is a transparent ode to self, audacious is the conceit, which allows an author, to have printed, the utter dizzying, dragging minutiae, of a life lived grasping for metaphors. Memory sanitized is self-history perverted. C...

    The beginning of this was choppy. I started wondering if he had had a proper editor for his early story jumped around a lot. After we settled into Kenny's theatre life I was intrigued at his robust foray into theatre. As a avid theatre goer and current regional theatre judge I especial...

    Kenny Leon's memoir, Take You Wherever You Go, had a slow start, but was very interesting when he connected the early life of his family with the work of August Wilson and detailed his relationship with the esteemed playwright. Leon seems a very upbeat and positive person and his memoi...

    His grandmother is the most important figure in his life and Kenny Leon honors her in Take You Wherever You Go. Memoirs and biographies are not 1 story but many stories of who a person is as no one's life can be confined in only one dimension. It's in 1960s Tallahassee, Florida, in Atl...

    Kenny Leon offers an insightful memoir and stories of acting and modern theater life. A native of Florida, he occasionally put me in mind of Andrew Gillum, who ran for and lost the 2018 governor's race, particularly in both men?s comments about the influence of a beloved grandmother....
