About Me

Leyla Ali was born and raised in Melbourne, Australia. In 2017 she took a leap, relocating to the United States to follow her dreams, (and her wonderful husband). A Performing Arts graduate, she has tread the boards in various roles around the globe, including Japan, Singapore, Australia and the high seas. Her first U.S. tour was the stunning, ‘Rodgers & Hammerstein's Cinderella’, followed by the first National tour of ’Tootsie’ the Comedy Musical. Leyla is extremely grateful to have a career that aligns with her love and passions.
