We have seen several plays at Signature Theater in Shirlington Village, located in Arlington, VA, not far from Washington, DC. The most recent was West Side Story. The singing, the dancing, the acting, the orchestra, the lighting and the sound were all superb. It was in the MAX Theater, which is a small intimate setting. The dancers were practically in...

Our first time in this newer location for Signature Theater. Saw West Side Story. The theater is very intimate. I felt like I was onstage with the actors. Great cast and well staged. It was a great experience.

The title of the review can refer to the theatre and the Village of Shirlington in Arlinton VA where it is found. The seats surround the stage on three sides with the orchestra in sight above the fourth side. There can be no "faking" it by the actors as every move can so easily be seen. We recently enjoyed seeing... More

If you love Sondheim this is the theater to keep an eye on. We've driven to DC almost every year for a production and we're never disappointed. Very professional company. Well staged productions. And it's located in a great district with lots of restaurants and free parking.

I've been to this theater several times, most recently for Cake Off. It's a great venue. It's small, so all seats are good seats. The productions have mostly been excellent, as in the case of Cake Off. The theater is in a small neighborhood of fantastic and diverse restaurants, where even the pickiest eaters can find something to their liking.

Signature provides top notch theater in a very intimate environment. We have been attending Signature for many years and find the productions to be well done.

This is my favorite theater in the area. Excellent musicals and cabarets in a small enough theater that you still have a good view of performers even if you are seated at the highest, farthest level. Location is excellent, with several good dining choices, wine and cheese shop + a few shopping stores, hair cuttery, nail salon, massage salon, parking... More

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. I am sometimes amazed at the staging and the talent that Signature Theatre has. It is always a delight to see how they will present a large play in... More

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
