John Blondell Presents Two Versions of Henry VI, Part 3

Lit Moon and Bitola National Theatre Team Up at Westmont on November 17


“Unprecedented” is how John Blondell describes what’s shaking down at Westmont’s Porter Theatre this Sunday. There, for one day only, Blondell’s award-winning Lit Moon Theatre Company will stage their rendition of Shakespeare’s Henry VI, Part 3, followed by a performance of the same play, in Macedonian, from Bitola National Theatre. Blondell directs both stagings and says that it’s the first time in history when two productions of the play will be performed in the same day, on the same stage, in different languages. The collaboration is the product of the Globe Theatre’s 2012 Globe to Globe Festival and a can’t-miss for Shakespeare buffs. The shows take place at 2 and 7 p.m., respectively. Visit westmont.edu for ticket info.
