Sightings: Dan Leonard

Dan Leonard is no stranger to the south Florida theatre scene; he's been gracing area stages since 1985.  This week, the Daily News reports that he is being honored with the Randolph A. Frank Prize for the Performing Arts.

He is also a playwright of some merit. His most well-known play is undoubtedly the biographical Ernie Pyle:
Here Is My War
, a one-man show he has performed around the country.  He has also created a prolific number of plays for Florida Stage's children's theatre program over the years.   A generation of actors toured Florida with Uncle Dan in any one of a dozen school tours. 

Congratulations, Dan!
