DBA Studio Announces BLACKBIRD at THE MET 9/8
DBA STUDIO is thrilled to have its acclaimed studio director Don Bloomfield, at the helm of the masterful, award-winning and intense production of "BLACKBIRD" by David Harrower. The emotionally raw drama will open at The MET Theatre, September 8th, 2017.
Don Bloomfield studied at the prestigious Neighborhood Playhouse in New York City under the tutelage of Sanford Meisner and William Alderson. During his first year as a student, Alderson cast Don in the lead role opposite Molly Ringwald in Oscar Winner Horton Foote's "Lily Dale." Don's breakout performance garnered him a New York Drama Desk Award nomination for Best Actor in a Leading Role, as well as a prestigious Al Hirshfeld caricature in the New York Times.
Bloomfield went on to do several years of New York stage work, as well as television and film work opposite such actors as Diane Keaton, Donald Sutherland and Tim Roth. Don's entry into the world of coaching came quite by happenstance as he assisted a young Robert Downey Jr. in an unofficial capacity, running dialogue with Mr. Downey throughout an early film of his called "Chances Are," before as kismet would have it Mr. Bloomfield wound up living with an emerging Philip Seymour Hoffman in their first years in Los Angeles.
From there, Don went on to coaching privately on set before teaching at The William Alderson Acting Studio in Los Angeles where Mr. Bloomfield went on to direct several projects, including Alan Ball's "Five Women Wearing The Same Dress" and Stephen Belber's "Tape." BlackbirdHollywood.com
