Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright August Wilson's Seven Guitars is a haunting exploration of the African-American experience in 20th-century America. The year is 1948, and blues singer Floyd "Schoolboy" Barton has just been released from jail. He's ready to jump-start his life -- in work and in love -- but fate intervenes in disastrous ways. Floyd's tale leads to the stories of other African Americans who share a neighborhood and dreams for a brighter future. Filled with lush language and remarkable characters, this rich, riveting drama is one of Wilson's most beloved -- and unforgettable -- works. No Rules Theatre Company's production of Seven Guitars is directed by Michele Shay, who was nominated for the 1996 Tony Award for Best Featured Actress in a Play for her role in the Broadway production of this very same show.

Some nice voices, but it's difficult to determine what the message of this show is supposed to be. It's probably meant to suggest that one has the power to change one's life, but in the end it does just the opposite. Still, not as bad as the reviews might suggest.

The plot was flimsy, the music terrible. No sense to having people from different eras on the same stage. Very earnest actors with pleasant voices. People started leaving in 30 minutes. Fortunately it was a one act. Not worth the half price...continued
