Blair’s popular show The Selfish Giant, based on the Oscar Wilde fairy tale, will play at the Acorn Theater in Three Oaks, Michigan, Saturday, July 6, at 1:00 pm. The performance appears as part of the Three Oaks Theater Festival. TimeOut Chicago had this to say about The Selfish Giant:
“Blair’s magnificent puppetry breathes some fresh air into the well-known tale of a giant whose refusal to allow children to play in his garden results in an eternal winter. His craftsmanship and ability to manipulate his creations allow the large-scale giant to convey emotion. Even the smaller marionette children, birds and bees appear full of life when the children sneak back into the garden and bring spring along with them. And Smith’s ability to render the entire play in song adds a folksy, fun sensibility to the story that is appreciated as much—perhaps even more—by the grown-ups in the audience.”
