I love coming to Signature Theatre. The small venue is so well suited to a intimate approach to theatre, that you feel as if they are there performing just for you.

This was my first foray into a smaller theatre venue. We saw Caberet and were enthralled by the emcee! Don't miss viewing the theatre's Tony Award showcased upstairs. A very intimate venue that really makes you feel a part of the performance. Cocktails and light snacks are available but are pricey as you might expect. You are steps away from... More

A lovely little regional theatre where I saw an excellent production of one of my favourite shows. A modern purpose built theatre with good facilities, if a little limited in certain aspects. The dress circle is really only normal chairs around a balcome for the front row and tall chairs behind them. The latter should probably more failrly be marked... More

Signature Theater is one of the great attractions in the greater Washington area. The shows are almost uniformly excellent, the singing and acting superb, and there is not a bad seat in any of the theaters. Also, there are loads of decent restaurants within a short walk. This is one of best entertainment values in the area.

One of our absolute favorite theater destinations in the Washington area. We have frequented their productions for almost all of their 25 year history. If you love musicals, you must visit Signature. Sondheim is a staple but so is the development of new work.

Love Signature Theatre - it is in a great location and I have yet to sit in a bad seat. I bought a three show subscription for my parents (who are in their late 80's) and they loved it. The shows were for Sunday matinee's and they were able to go to nearby resturants after for early dinner.

Now in its 25th Season, I've been experiencing Signature about that amount of time as I am a Sondheim addict and they have approached almost all of his works in that time. Currently even though I live in CT I subscribe to a 4 show series and plan long weekends in the area around the shows. The box office staff... More

The last time we went to a show at Signature Theater we parked in the nearby parking garage per Signature Theater directions & after the show we discovered that our car had towed away! It cost us $140 + cab fare + an extra 2 hrs to get home! When we and the four other couples who had their cars... More

We have a subscription to the Signature, even though we live in New york City. We were drawn to a production of a show we love ("Side Show") back in early 2001, and made a special trip to see it. We were pleased and surprised by the professionalism and talent displayed, and became subscribers. We usually take a three or... More
