   Why does Frank Levy look so happy?

Henry David Thoreau wrote that he didn't want to come to the end of his life and then find out that he hadn't really lived it. There lies a capsule explanation as to why Frank Levy elects to continue to live and write so very close to New Orleans. It is a little-known medical fact that Frank's pulse matches exactly the rhythm of the Mardi Gras Mambo. However, during the 51 weeks of the year when it's not Mardi Gras, he is very seriously a published writer, lecturer, public speaker, consultant, performer, educator and wine expert. He also directs plays and theater workshops.  

Frank is a 30 year veteran teacher of writing, speech and dramatics from elementary school through university level, as well as a state certified evaluator for talented theater. He has performed his one-man interactive shows across the United States, Canada and in eight tours of Australia, beginning with an appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show in New York when he was eighteen.

Frank has toured schools, synagogues, corporate gatherings, community centers, churches, and festivals with a wide variety of programs for audiences of all ages, including successful interactive theater projects, workshops, and performances. He has special training in working with large groups who have Post Traumatic Stress and uses his interactive theater techniques to deliver the message wrapped in entertainment. Frank has gained special recognition from the Red Cross for interactive performances he provided at dozens of shelters after Hurricane Katrina and again for Hurricanes Rita, Gustave and Ike. Frank has also taught theater at Southeastern Louisiana University, Media Arts at Tulane University and recently performed in a highly acclaimed production of Eugene O'Neill's The Iceman Cometh at the Contemporary Arts Center in New Orleans. He has been named St. Tammany Parish Performing Artist of the Year and is included the Louisiana State University Library Registry of Performing Artists.

Frank is the founding director of the Playmakers Summer Theater Camps in Covington, Louisiana.
