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.

The Signature Theatre has done it again! What a great night of movie tunes performed by a group of very talented actors and musicians. Went on a whim and was glad I did. It made for a great night out in NoVa and the price could not be beat. I will definitely seek out other cabaret shows in Signature's arsenal. My only complaint was the lack of a brief intermission so I could've gotten another beer (and the theatre could've made some more money!).
