About the show: Directed by Signature's Associate Artistic Director Matthew Gardiner (Art, [title of show]), Really Really is a contemporary drama that pushes The Edges and embraces the harsh realities of the "Me" Generation. At an elite university, when the party of the year ends in the regret of a lifetime, one person will stop at nothing to salvage a future that is suddenly slipping away – and it is now every man for himself. The provocative new play features a young cast that includes Paul James (TV's Greek), Kim Rosen (Ideal at 59E59 Off-Broadway), Bethany Anne Lind (Carapace and 26 Miles at ALLIANCE THEATRE), Danny Gavigan (Pride and Prejudice at Round House Theatre), Lauren Culpepper (Crime and Punishment at Centerstage), Evan Casey (Signature's The Hollow and The Boy Detective Fails), and Jake Odmark (Signature's Sunset Boulevard).

Eric Schaeffer, Signature Theatre's Artistic Director, stated, "Really Really is a fearless new work by a remarkable young playwright that speaks directly to today's youth. In these uncertain economic times, Signature is dedicated to bringing affordable ticket prices to theater lovers of all ages. This is a play that is sure to get audiences talking – and we wanted to ensure that younger audiences would be able to take advantage of this opportunity and see a great show."
