Tonight Airplane Live goes live in front of an audience. If you’re a fan of the 1980 movie you’ll love this staged adaptation – true to the original, but with a few additional twists.
I was asked to direct this play by my friend Chrisi (the writer) and it has been an enjoyable 2 months of rehearsals, run-throughs and the usual ups and downs of trying to get a piece of theater ready for an audience.
Granted, Pinter… it ain’t, but watching the actors individually find their way through the material while everyone figures out a way to come together as an ensemble is always kind of magical. I know that sounds hokey, but it is true. I’m happy I was a part of the process.
The LA Weekly has already listed the show as one of the top things to do in Los Angeles this weekend, and tickets are already moving briskly. It should be a good run.
Don’t miss it!
