Charles L. Mee's new play, Big Love, sets out to prove once and for all that bigger really is better. Forget Seven Brides for Seven Brothers; this has 50 brides for 50 grooms. True, the grooms aren't brothers, but who cares? There are 50 of them. It's like The Bachelor on acid. Not big enough, you say? Check this out. The brides run away and hide in a villa in Italy. Then the grooms hunt them down in helicopters. After a few pop songs and romantic dances, all but one of the brides kills her groom. Talk about big love! Mee's play runs Thursday through October 19 at the John Anthony Theatre, 2800 E. Spring Creek Parkway in Plano. Call 972-881-5100.
