Eric Leonard (Pedant) returns to Chicago Shakespeare Theater, where he appeared in As You Like It. Other Chicago credits include: After the Fall, Six Degrees of Separation (Eclipse Theatre Company); Adore (XIII Pocket); The Quiet Man Tales (Smock Alley Theatre at the Chicago Theater); and Hamlet (Signal Ensemble Theatre). Regional credits include eight productions with Montana Shakespeare in the Parks. Eric attended Homewood-Flossmoor High School. He recalls that "I wasn't terribly impressed" by Shakespeare at first: "We never got the chance to see or hear it, and I think that biased me." What Eric enjoys most about acting is that "You get to do things on stage that you will NEVER get to do in life."
