Scenography & Lighting Design
In the 1970s Flannery designed the lighting for many productions on and off-Broadway, including original plays presented by the Chelsea Theatre Company. After relocating to Los Angeles in the late 1970s Flannery began designing and directing popular entertainment such as the ‘Sonny and Cher Concert’ tours and Elvis Presley’s ‘Elvis Forever’, a stage production show in Las Vegas and Los Angeles. Flannery designed and directed the original Star Wars Concert at the Hollywood Bowl. The concert was a phenomenal success. Flannery would go on to pioneer “Visual Symphonies” as a new genre of entertainment.
