Signature Theatre Company continues its 15th Anniversary Celebration with The August Wilson Series, the first New York exploration of the late playwright's significant body of work. The three-play Wilson tribute opens with Seven Guitars, directed by Tony Award winner Ruben Santiago-Hudson.
Hope and heartbreak abound in Pittsburgh's Hill District as seven people share frustration, joy and loss in 1948. Floyd "Schoolboy" Barton, an aspiring blues musician, returns home to seek his fortune and reclaim his woman; a sick old man longs for an heir to carry on his name; and three single women cope with betrayal and lost dreams. Like seven musical instruments, each one strikes a singular note in a discordant world.
There is no performances on Monday, September 4 at 8 PM.
Talk Backs are scheduled for Tuesdays August 29 and September 12 immediately following the 7 PM performance.
