'Big Love' Off Broadway Review: Fifty Brides and Fifty Grooms Battle It Out

'Big Love' Off Broadway Review: Fifty Brides and Fifty Grooms Battle It Out
BY MICHAEL SOMMERS
NEWJERSEYNEWSROOM.COM
OFF BRADWAY REVIEW 

A striking fantasia inspired by a fragmentary Greek drama from 463 B.C., “Big Love” explores serious themes regarding refugees, feminism, revenge, family, romance and forgiveness.

Charles Mee’s wildly eclectic 90-minute play packs plenty of entertainment in the extravagant and exuberant production staged by Tina Landau at the Pershing Square Signature Theater, where the show opened on Monday night.

Drawn from a mostly lost trilogy by Aeschylus but dressed in modern clothes and trimmings, “Big Love” concerns fifty sisters who flee their enforced marriages to fifty brothers, who pursue them to Italy.
