I was captivated pretty much from start to finish. The Connecticut Repertory Theatre does an exceptional job. … Bring an open mind and allow CRT’s devoted company to set you free. This production of “Big Love” by the Connecticut Repertory Theatre has certainly met Mee’s wonderful, theatrical challenge by taking leaps.Ed Wierzbicki, WNPR

Classical drama collides with modern-day excess in Charles Mee’s Big Love, a fiercely extravagant adaptation of Aeschylus’ The Suppliant Maidens that The New York Times described as “an MGM musical in Technicolor, a circus and, believe it, a Greek tragedy.” Big Love is a luxurious, riotous, wild romp in which 50 brides – all sisters – vow to escape their 50 fiancés on their wedding night. Seeking to get away from the old country, where marriage is contracted and love is CRT_BIGLOVE_PRESS006unheard of, the sisters leave their betrothed standing at the altar as they hop a boat for better times and a little equality. As the brides seek asylum at the villa of a family man who is unwilling to take sides, the grooms catch up – by helicopter. With no one to stand up for them, the women decide to stand up for themselves by any means necessary. Big Love gives the term “battle of the sexes” a whole new meaning!
