Judah LeBlang
The Cleveland Performing Arts Center at the Masonic Auditorium in conjunction with Gay Games 9 welcomes Boston-based/Cleveland-raised writer/storyteller Judah Leblang for a humorous look at life in middle age on Wednesday, August 13 at 7:30 PM at the Masonic Center, 3615 Euclid Avenue in Cleveland. Leblang’s show, “One Man’s Journey through the Middle Ages,” is based on his recent memoir, Finding My Place, which chronicles both his youth growing up in Cleveland, Ohio during the 1960s and ‘70s, his ongoing attachment to that gritty city and its unfortunate sports teams, and his life today as a gay, single, hard of hearing man in Boston.
The show explores a series of adventures or misadventures in which ‘Man planned and God laughed,’ including a missed connection/affair at President Obama’s first inauguration, a clothing malfunction in the gay mecca of Provincetown, Massachusetts, and a sudden onset of hearing loss at age 49.
Leblang is currently on a mini-tour, with engagements in Boston and in the Cleveland area. (He is performing as part of a GLBT showcase at Dobama Theater, sponsored by CH-UH Public Library, on Thursday evening August 7). Leblang’s show has been called “poignant,” “rhythmic…his words and voice in synch,” by Boston’s Jewish Advocate, and “totally engaging.” His readings and events have been featured in the Boston Globe, Cleveland Plain Dealer, and in various gay publications around the US.
He is the author of the ‘Life in the Slow Lane’ column for Bay Windows, Boston’s gay newspaper, and a frequent contributor to The Health Show, produced by WAMC-radio in Albany, NY, which is carried on more than 150 NPR and ABC-radio network stations around the US. His radio commentaries and true-life stories have been featured on WKSU radio in Northeast Ohio, New Hampshire Public Radio, and many other stations.
