Gemini Award nominee Chris Leavins brings his new stage show to Los Angeles after a triumphant tour across cyberspace. Originally inspired by one of his critically acclaimed Toronto theatre festival productions, which drew an audience of four, Chris made a drastic move and became one of the first actors in the world to bring internet technology to the stage. The new production, about a show…about a show…which became a huge hit on the internet, sold out its live ‘one night only’ workshop booking in 85 minutes! Chris returns to the Los Angeles stage for a 6 week run, bringing an innovation and style to theater seldom seen anywhere else. Cute With Chris: LIVE projects interactive elements with live performance and may forever change the face, and popularity, of solo performances in theaters worldwide.

Featured on the front page of YouTube, iTunes, and Yahoo, the Cute with Chris internet series has become a hugely popular weekly event that is seen by millions of people, in dozens of countries all over the world. The Star Phoenix calls Chris Leavins “…the funniest guy on the internet today...” with at least 100,000 views for each show.

Chris Leavins has been nominated for two Gemini Awards (1997 as Best Supporting Actor and 2007 for Guest Performance in a television drama). He has been a cast member or guest star on some of Canada’s most popular and critically acclaimed television series including Traders (Gemini Winner 1997 and 1998 Best Dramatic Series), The Eleventh Hour (Gemini Winner 2002 and 2003 Best Dramatic Series), and Slings and Arrows (Gemini Winner 2006 Best Dramatic series), which now airs in the United States on the Sundance Channel. Leavins appeared in the 1997 film The Hanging Garden (Winner of 4 Gemini Awards). An accomplished stage performer and playwright, his shows Posterchild, The Captain, and The Best Play in the Fringe Festival Ever have been performed ‘live’ in theaters across North America. He now lives in Los Angeles.

For anyone who’s ever been frightened by solo shows…now is the time to get back in the water, and come to the theater!
