Veterans Theater Group Coming to Long Beach

The Strindberg Laboratory, an innovative nonprofit that presents professional theater workshops and plays for disadvantaged populations, has agreed to partner with us in Long Beach. That means more opportunities for veterans to collaborate with actors, writers, directors and producers who have valuable experience in the creative arts, and to commune with peers in the process. Scroll down to see a portion of the online chat I had with with Strindberg co-founder Michael Bierman, who explained all veterans have a story to tell, and are encouraged to participate. And check out a long People Magazine piece about the work Michael and his wife Meri Pakarinen have been doing with California inmates. It includes a video report by People correspondent Tiare Dunlap.
