MEET THE CAST
Lesley Ligthelm (Linda) is a multiskilled, Meisner-trained actress based in NYC. Much like her character, Linda, she transitioned from a life of professional dancing to a life of “laundry”; before marching home to the stage. Armed with a larger than life-size heart of emotions and the tenacious love of her husband and kids, she’s not leaving the stage again any time soon. Well, as soon as this last load is done.
Elliot Brown (Jim) is delighted to be making his NY Theatre Debut in The Magic Tower. Elliot studied acting at William Esper Studio where he was taught by the illustrious Barbara Marchant. Before that he studied Balinese Dance & Mask Work at the Bali Punarti Center for the Arts. Theatre includes: The Wild Duck (Royal Conservatoire of Scotland); The Cherry Orchard (RCS). He would like to thank his kind parents; bishop, his dog; & Hallie, his resplendent girlfriend for all of their support.
Michelle Pariseau (Babe) is thrilled to be in her first play in NYC! Trained at William Esper Studio and Florida State University. Michelle is so grateful to her family and friends for their love and support.
Sam Saravolatz (Mitch) hails from Detroit, MI which explains his love for American Cars and Tigers (The baseball team not the feline ). After graduating from the University of Michigan with a degree in film he moved to NYC and trained under William Esper for two years. You can catch him this fall on the History Channel’s Rebels Who Built America playing the de facto Jackass leader Johnny Knoxville. He’d like to thank his lovely girlfriend Maddie for her continual love and support.
