Talk Explores Bringing SB’s Flying A To The Stage
Blondell and Michael Bernard, who wrote the play, collaborated to produce a revealing, live theater event that centers around the mishaps and innovation of the Flying A and how it helped shape more than a century of storytelling. “Diamond to Dust” will be performed in Westmont’s Porter Theatre February 24-25, March 2-4 at 7:30 p.m.; and March 4 at 2 p.m.
As co-founder and director of the Lit Moon Theatre Company, Blondell will direct Chekhov’s “Uncle Vanya” later this spring.https://www.edhat.com/simpleads/redirect/44336

In the meantime, he will direct “Richard III” for Prague Shakespeare in Prague, “Prometheus Bound” in the ancient Roman theater of Heraclea in Bitola, Macedonia and “Peer Gynt” in Karaganda, Kazakhstan. He also helped curate the Verona Shakespeare Festival, which will run August 24-31 in Verona.
