We are proud to announce that this past November, Leah was the recipient of the Armenian Dramatic Arts Alliance "Armenian Star Award".

The Armenian Star Award is given annually by ADAA to an individual who exemplifies two or more of the following:

  • Dedication to practicing and/or furthering the arts at a high level;
  • Professional or artistic achievement in their own field/career;
  • Commitment to and advocacy on behalf of Armenian arts and artists on an international stage; and
  • Dedication to public/civic service, particularly to Armenian culture, art and causes.

The award was presented by playwright and ADAA board member Lisa Kirazian at the ADAA’s annual awards gala at the Writer’s Guild of America in Beverly Hills, CA.
