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.

This is a great series that Signature puts on. Thoroughly enjoyed last year's Lost Broadway: The 1970s so I knew this year's 1980s edition would be fantastic. And it was. The only reason I didn't give it five stars was due to the know-it-all theatre queen sitting behind us who wouldn't shut up the entire time. Also, this is something that Signature should start recording because so many of these tunes are truly "lost" other than grainy YouTube videos.

This is a great series that Signature offers and although these songs were "Lost," I was actually familiar with most of them and had even seen some of the less-than-memorable shows.
I really can't wait for the Lost Songs of Broadway: The 1990s!

February 26-28 and March 1, 2014 at 8:00pm: The Lost Songs of Broadway – 1980s
The 1980s were larger-than-life: big hair, neon fashion and blockbuster musicals. However, the extravagant decade that brought Les Miserables_, Cats and The Phantom of the Opera_ to the Broadway stage also produced smaller gems, such as Tom Foolery, Smile and Busboys and Dinettes. In the spirit of the previous Lost Songs cabarets, Signature rediscovers some of the best songs that time forgot. Featuring Signature All-Stars Maria Egler (Holiday Follies_), Stephen Gregory Smith (_Miss Saigon, The Boy Detective Fails_) and Nova Y. Payton (_Crossing, Dreamgirls, Hairspray), this is an evening you don’t want to miss!
