Star Tribune article about Leslye's show in Illusion Theater's Fresh Ink series.

What I Thought I Saw: Random Acts of Blindness is a comedic look at the one-eyed adventures of Leslye Orr and her off-kilter view of life in a 3D world. In this new autobiographical storytelling piece, Leslye, who is legally blind, humorously chronicles the visual challenges she faces, and the inspiring travels and wacky mishaps she has had as a performer and advocate for people with disabilities. Leslye also tells stories of spending her childhood in thick glasses, growing up as one of eight kids in Sioux Falls, dealing with high school pranksters in the seventies, learning to do the craziest sound effects, and how she survived taking a big leap of faith as a wannabe performer in Minneapolis.

What I Thought I Saw: Random Acts of Blindness was first presented as a part of Illusion Theater's Fresh Ink series in July 2013.
