AN 11:11 EXPERIENCE (Production Company), founded by Michael Leoni, is a theatre and film production company dedicated to creating projects that promote social change. It was conceived from the idea that theatre and film have the capacity to create connection, encourage compassion, engage and inspire audiences. Founded in 2004, we focus on developing powerful stories and compelling characters that encourage people to see the world from another point of view. From powerful documentaries to inspiring narratives and innovative theatre, we are committed to producing work that’s brave, provocative and significant.
An 11:11 Experience’s first Los Angeles based project was the original workshop version of The Playground, a music-infused piece inspired by the lives of homeless kids and teenage runaways, which had 6 successful runs, outstanding reviews and tremendous industry support. It is currently in preparations for a re-mounting in LA and has been adapted into a feature film that is currently in development.
Current projects include: American Street Kid, a powerful, feature-length documentary, that takes us onto the streets and into the real lives of America’s homeless youth, due for release 2017 and the LA smash hit, ELEVATOR, a comedic stage play that ran for 10 months to amazing reviews, including “Critic’s Choice” from the LA Times and 11 nominations from Broadway World, including Best New Work. ELEVATOR is currently in the process of re-mounting in Los Angeles at The Coast Theatre in West Hollywood. (www.elevatortheplay.com).
