Triumvirate Pi Theatre is dedicated to producing provocative live theatre that breaks down perceived barriers of race, gender, and disability for all Los Angeles artists and audiences. We only produce in wheelchair accessible venues and we provide open captioning at all our mainstage show performances. We produce original works for both families and adults, including puppetry productions, that push the boundaries of theater.
We often collaborate with artists we admire or are familiar with on particular projects. We also have open casting for a variety of roles, depending on the production. Our core artistic members are:
Leslie K. Gray,
Leslie was one of the founding members of Triumvirate Pi along with Diane Lefer and Sachi Oyama. She took over as Artistic Director in 2002.

Rosalie has been a performer since the age of six when she forced her family to watch her practice jete leaps from the couch to Prince's Purple Rain. Since then she has continued in her search for artistic expression by studying dance, theater, puppetry, fire-dancing, and clowning. This had led her to work with a variety of performance groups including Viver Brasil, March Fourth Marching Band, Michael Franti and Spearhead, and Travesty Revue Burlesque. Rosalie holds a BA in Dance and Choreography from UCLA's World Arts and Cultures department and currently works in LAUSD schools as an arts educator.
