LEONARD'S FOLLY

by Allan Knee
Music by Robert Wolf
Directed by Thomas Coté†

Think Mount Rushmore. -- Now think 75 years later.
Leonard Fisher - a naive 26-year-old street artist - a competitor of the Naked Cowboy - is commissioned by the Arts Council of South Beach, Florida, to create - to sculpt - Mt. Rushmore - to transform South Beach into the cultural capital it longs to be.   Rather than sculpt four presidents - as the original Rushmore had - Leonard creates - sculpts - who he is passionate about.  His four heads consist of the whistle blower Ed Snowden, the songbird Nicki Minaj, the iconic spaceman Ziggy Stardust and the bumbling Homer Simpson.   This leads to controversy among various groups - and even one of the heads rebels.  But Leonard - inspired by a growing interest from Disney - and one of the attractive members  of the Arts Council -  grows up and fights for what he believes in.
