Andrew Delaplaine is a writer/director living on South Beach . He is developing several live action and animated projects for cable TV as well as several feature films.

In the past, with his sister Renee, he has owned a restaurant on South Beach (Scratch), a nightclub (Warsaw Ballroom), a newspaper (The Wire), among other enterprises. He now works full-time on entertainment projects.

“The Morning Show”is his first animated feature – he is currently in post production on his first live-action feature, “Life's a Drag (When You're a Man in a Dress),” about a drag queen whose 12-year-old daughter he didn't know he had shows up on his doorstep a few days before Christmas.

DIRECTOR’S STATEMENT

Having worked with David Leddick in another documentary chronicling his monumental work, “The Male Nude,” published by Taschen, I was interested when I learned he was writing a one-man show about his friendship with Quentin Crisp in documenting the process he went through to create this stage show.
