Directed by Tony Award winner Ruben Santiago-Hudson and featuring original music by Bill Sims, Jr., Seven Guitars began previews July 31 and was originally scheduled to run through September 23. Tickets are available at the box office at 555 W. 42nd Street, by calling (212) 244-PLAY or at www.signaturetheatre.org.

Tickets for the run to Sept. 23 are $15. 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.

"Hope and heartbreak abound in Pittsburgh's Hill District as seven people share frustration, joy and loss in 1948," according to Signature. "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."
