Signature Theatre has grown unbelievably since it started in a former garage a few blocks from its current location in a building designed for it. Shows run the gamut from drama to comedy to musical but all tend to be new works or new productions of noted plays. As mentioned, ticket prices are reasonable and there are often seats available...

We usually go to about 3 plays a season - all have been really good productions, with a high quality of acting and sets. They do lots of musicals though and we aren't as interested in some of those.

We have seen many shows over the past five years but last night's performance of Beaches prompted me to write this review. It was terrific..we thought one of the best "off Broadway" productions we have ever enjoyed both here at the Signature and many other venues we visit in NYC. Boston and Sarasota , FL. This cast was spot on... More

The Signature theater is SMALL....I mean really TINY. It seats so few people that one is amazed that it's such a well-regarded theater (having been awarded a local Emmy award a few years ago). And yet, they are able to pull off the most magnificent of shows time and again. Definitely worth seeing a big-name musical or a small intimate... More

You'll get fantastic theater here - with cutting edge presentations. But, often, there are some very familiar plays - a nice mix. Top notch performers. It's a one-stop evening: free parking, lots of restaurants within a couple of blocks. Reasonable ticket prices. You can't miss.

Saw a show in the Ark theater at Signature - their cabaret setting. It was wonderful. Free parking in the garage next door, food and drink sales in the theater plus all of Shirlington to pick from. I will be back!

Signature is so professional and has such a great venue that it is a great addition to Arlington. Sometimes they approach the edgy side of theater (check out the story before you go), but overall a very very worthwhile operation.

My partner and I live in the area. We have seen 3 of their plays since we move here 7 months ago. We love their performances. They always put a great show and the cast is fantastic!

Rating a theater in the abstract is dicey; it obviously depends on the specific production. Signature has built an interesting venue - a black box that it usually set up amphitheater style. Lighting and sound are first rate. The last show we saw there -Gypsy, which just closed- was terrific. The cast was strong, especially the lead, Mama Rose. Sets... More

We have been to the Signature Theater several times and have NEVER been disappointed. Today, we saw Gypsy and it was a terrific production. Big productions are great, but they are expensive. Signature provides a quality experience for very reasonable prices. The RUSH (discounted 30 minutes before curtain) tickets are a tremendous value if they are available.
