Get to Know Lee from the Cast of 1001

In our continuing and popular series of probing exposes I present Mr. Lee Liebeskind. He is the one on the right with the nasty looking pig-sticker!

This isn't Lee's first go-around with the Rorschach rodeo, having previously been in Dream Sailors and Rough Magic. This time he appears as the One-Eyed Man, Sinbad the Sailor and various other characters in 1001.

1. Who are you, and what are you doing in or on or around 1001?

Hello I am Lee and I will be your character of B today. Please remember that the exits are located at the front and back of the plane and that in case of a water landing your seat can be used as a flotation device.

2. So. No pressure, but you're sort of kicking off Season 9 for us. You'll be basically setting the tone for the whole summer. What are you and this show bringing to the table?

I plan on bringing an ambrosia salad...that does sound tasty...mmmm marshmallows

3. Jason Grote's plays sort of pulse with a punch-drunk intelligence, and this one sort of stews with lots of odd pop-cultural and historical references. Are there any in particular that jumped out at you as you read the script?

Jumping out? Like a Lemur on crack? Nothing like that but the scene where Sinbad meets Borges really was a great juxtaposition.

4. 1001 has got a strong romantic side to it as well. On a scale of 1 to 10, with 1 being "no chance" and 10 being "as certain as a sunrise," how would you assess the chances of an audience member getting some lovin' if they brought someone special to see the play?

Lets put it this way...Scott McCormick will personally guarantee that you will get laid after seeing this play or he promises to get one of the Rorschach tribe to make mad passionate love to you. (only while supplies last) (Editor: Lee's right act quickly, supplies are going fast. I am getting worn out and that was before the glowing review in The Post!)

5. Do you own your own scimitar? If no why not?

If you are referring to my pants...then yes. If not I don't know why you are asking?
