Signature Theatre: Big Love Trailer

The trailer for Charles Mee's Big Love at Signature Theatre: signaturetheatre.org/tickets/production.aspx?pid=3764 Fifty brides flee their fifty grooms and seek refuge in an Italian villa in this modern re-making of one of the world's oldest plays, The Danaids by Aeschylus. Mayhem ensues, complete with grooms in flight suits, women throwing themselves to the ground, occasional pop songs and romantic dances - even a bride falling in love. Reuniting Signature's 2007-08 Playwright-in-Residence Charles Mee with his longtime collaborator Tina Landau, Big Love is a colossal, poetic work that explores the hunger for independence, the burden of tradition, and the shape and size of love. Featuring: Emmanuel Brown, Lynn Cohen, Ellen Harvey, Ryan-James Hatanaka, Christopher Innvar, Rebecca Naomi Jones, Preston Sadleir, Stacey Sargeant, Nathaniel Stampley, Bobby Steggert, Libby Winters Creative Team: Brett Banakis (Scenic Design), Anita Yavich (Costume Design), Scott Zielinski (Lighting Design), Kevin O’Donnell (Sound Design), Austin Switser (Projection Design), Rick Sordelet (Fight Direction), Lori Lundquist (Production Stage Manager). Casting by Telsey + Company, William Cantler, CSA.

Founded in 1991 by James Houghton, Signature makes an extended commitment to a playwright’s body of work, and during this journey, the writer is engaged in every aspect of the creative process. Signature is the first theatre company to devote an entire season to the work of a single playwright, including re-examinations of past writings as well as New York and world premieres. By championing in-depth explorations of a living playwright’s body of work, Signature Theatre delivers an intimate and immersive journey into the playwright’s singular vision. Signature has presented entire seasons of the work of Edward Albee, Lee Blessing, Horton Foote, Maria Irene Fornes, John Guare, Bill Irwin, Adrienne Kennedy, Tony Kushner, Romulus Linney, Charles Mee, Arthur Miller, Sam Shepard, Paula Vogel, August Wilson, Lanford Wilson, and a season celebrating the historic Negro Ensemble Company.
