Let me introduce myself!  

My name is Leigh Martha Klinger, but most people just call me Leigh.  I was born and raised in the city of Krefeld, in the lovely Lower Rhine Area of Germany.

From the start, I was immersed in the languages of English and German. My mom, an English teacher from New Jersey, and my dad, a native German, were also music lovers. I guess you could say that music became my 3rd language.

I’ve dreamt of being able to sing, dance, and perform for a living since I was 7 years old. After receiving training at The Bavarian Theater Academy August Everding in Munich, I began working in musical theater in many German-speaking countries. Over the course of 6 years, I played in variety of theaters and roles, including a leading part in the Queen musical, "We Will Rock You".

But something was missing! Having always felt the lure of New York and my American roots, I stopped auditioning for European shows and made my way to the States. While it’s taken some time to get my bearings in this new world, I’ve realized that this is the time and place to take advantage of wonderful new opportunities.
