Garth Wingfield’s drama “Flight,” about Charles Lindbergh, has its world preem at the Lucille Lortel Theater this spring. Melting Pot Theater Company presents the play, which starts previews May 8 and opens May 16 for a run through June 19.

“Flight” follows the American aviation pioneer during 14 critical years of his life, covering his historic flight to Paris, the kidnapping of his son, his sudden decision to move to Europe and the notorious anti-Semitic remarks he made at the outbreak of WWII.
