Rebecca Naomi Jones, Bobby Steggert, and More to Star in Charles Mee's Big Love
Broadway veterans including Rebecca Naomi Jones (The Fortress of Solitude) and Bobby Steggert (Mothers and Sons) will make up the cast of Charles Mee's Big Love, a production of Signature Theatre Company directed by Tina Landau. The play will run from February 3-March 15, with opening night set for February 23 in the Irene Diamond Stage at the Pershing Square Signature Center.
Big Love is Mee's adaptation of The Danaids by Aeschylus, one of the world's oldest plays. The work follows 50 brides as they flee their 50 grooms and seek refuge in an Italian villa. Leading the company are Jones as Lydia, Steggert as Nikos, Lynn Cohen as Bella, Ellen Harvey as Eleanor, Christopher Innvar as Piero, Nathaniel Stampley as Leo, Emmanuel Brown as Oed, Ryan-James Hatanaka as Constantine, Preston Sadeir as Giuliano, Stavey Sargeant as Thyona, and Libby Winters as Olympia.
The design team includes Brett Banakis (scenic design), Anita Yavich (costume design), Scott Zielinski (lighting design), Kevin O’Donnell (sound design), Austin Switser (projection design), and Rick Sordelet (fight direction).
While Charles Mee was Signature's 2007-08 playwright in residence, his plays Iphigenia 2.0, Queens Bouelvard (the musical), and Paradise Park were produced.
