"Some Girl(s)"

Written by Neil LaBute

Direction, Sound Design & Projections by Bakari Lebby

Workshop Theatre - 2017

 

Lebby’s direction is confident and intricate, allowing each actor to bring LaBute’s gritty, meandering, ultra-natural prose to life. [...] The director has cleverly cast five women who are adept at creating disparate characters, yet who all resemble each other in some way; the guy clearly has a “type.” [...] The universality of the issues raised, and the ability of the director and cast to express them, make this production a success.
— August Krickel - Free Times
 

"Stick Fly"

Written by Lydia R. Diamond

Directed & Sound Designed by Bakari Lebby

Workshop Theatre - 2015

One thing is certain: director Bakari Lebby is a rising star on the local theater scene, and his expert touch can be seen throughout this thought-provoking production [...] I cannot stress enough how adeptly the six performers embody their roles, and how masterfully director Bakari Lebby has crafted it all together.

"the shape of things"

Written by Neil LaBute

Direction, Sound Design & Projections by Bakari Lebby

Theatre South Carolina - 2013

Workshop Theatre - 2013

[W]hat I normally enjoy most is quirky, character-centric shows with something to say [...], and the very best of those that I have seen in years and years was The Shape of Things, directed by Bakari Lebby – at age 22!! – in two separate and equally excellent productions, first at USC and then at Workshop with a different cast.
