Charles Mee’s BIG LOVE is a modern interpretation of a Greek tragedy – but don’t be fooled – this magical reimagining feels like nothing of the kind. Starting March 18th, The University Theatre at WMU will begin taking audiences on a delightful exploration of love that NY Theatre described as “playful, funny, sexy, chaotic, bloody, and shocking.” BIG LOVE is a luxurious, wild romp about 50 sisters who escape their home on their wedding night in order to be free of their old country, where marriage is contracted and love is unheard of. As the wedding party searches for answers to the possibilities and impossibilities of love – the journey leaves audiences laughing out loud only to have their hearts broken.
