Full Cast, Creative Team Set for Signature's Seven Guitars
The show kicks off the beginning of Signature's three-play salute to Wilson, who died last year; it will continue with revivals of two more plays from Wilson's "Hill Cycle": Two Trains Running and King Hedley II. Set in 1948, Seven Guitars concerns seven individuals in Pittsburgh who share frustration, joy, and loss. The original 1996 Broadway production ran for 188 performances. It received eight Tony Award nominations, including Best Play, with Santiago-Hudson winning the Tony as Best Featured Actor in a Play for his performance as Canewell.
The Signature production will feature original music by Obie winner and blues legend Bill Sims, set design by Richard Hoover, costumes by Karen Perry, lighting by Jane Cox, sound design by Darron L. West, and fight direction by Rick Sordelet.
