When local theater director Brian Best asked friend and Broadway star Steve Blanchard to perform in his directorial debut, he was half kidding. Luckily for Best, Blanchard wasn't joking when he said yes. Blanchard, a former Charles County resident, will make his return to local theater in a performance of Johnny Guitar, a stage re-enactment of the 1954 film starring Joan Crawford.
