Next on the MET stage….
The sixth in the author’s decade-by-decade exploration of the black experience in America, the 1995 Pulitzer Prize finalist Seven Guitars is part bawdy comedy, part dark elegy, and part mystery.
In the backyard of a Pittsburgh tenement in 1948, friends gather to mourn for a blues guitarist and singer who died just as his career was on the verge of taking off. The action that follows is a flashback to the busy week leading up to Floyd’s sudden and unnatural death.
