LEIGH ALLAN

recently retired as Marketing Director of Remy Bumppo Theatre Company. Previously; he held the same position with the Human Race Theatre of Dayton, Ohio. Leigh spent most of his professional life in broadcast and print media, as a news director, commentator, columnist and radio station owner/operator. He retired as Metro Columnist of the Dayton Daily News to move over to the theatre world. He occasionally wrote on theatre and related matters, and his interest in theatre goes back to his teens, when he was privileged to view such performances as Maggie Smith's starring debut (in "Mary, Mary" in London), Ingrid Bergman dominating "Captain Brassbound's Conversion", Marcelle Marceau walking against the wind in an ancient amphitheater in Cyprus, Hal Holbrook as Mark Twain and James Whitmore as Will Rogers, and even Edward Everett Horton as a butler (of course).
