Signature Theatre's Seven Guitars Extends through Oct. 7

Signature Theatre Company announced today that it would extend its critically-acclaimed production of August Wilson's Seven Guitars through Saturday, October 7 (a two-week extension).  Directed by Tony Award winner Ruben Santiago-Hudson and featuring original music by Bill Sims, Jr., Seven Guitars began previews on Monday, July 31 and was originally scheduled to run through September 23.

Signature's $15 Ticket Initiative, made possible by the lead sponsorship of Time Warner Inc. will continue through September 23 with Seven Guitars.  Ticket prices for the two-week extension will be $55.  The $15 Ticket Initiative will resume in November for the next play in The August Wilson Series, Two Trains Running, and continue in February with King Hedley II.

Seven Guitars stars Kevin Carroll, Cassandra Freeman, Stephen McKinley Henderson, Brenda Pressley, Lance Reddick, Roslyn Ruff, and Charles Weldon.  Director Santiago-Hudson won a Tony for his performance in the original Broadway production of Seven Guitars.

"Hope and heartbreak abound in Pittsburgh's Hill District as seven people share frustration, joy and loss in 1948. Floyd 'Schoolboy' Barton, an aspiring blues musician, returns home to seek his fortune and reclaim his woman; a sick old man longs for an heir to carry on his name; and three single women cope with betrayal and lost dreams. Like seven musical instruments, each one strikes a singular note in a discordant world," according to Signature notes on the show.

Signature Theatre's Peter Norton Space is located at 555 W. 42nd Street (between 10th and 11th Avenues).  For ticket information, please call (212) 244-PLAY (7529) or go to
