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

You'd think from the prices of the tickets that you'd be watching a play or musical in a more elegant setting. The theater itself looks shabby with an industrial look. It seems the lobby space and the bathroom was updated but not the theater itself. Time to modernize.

It was advertised as an Andrews Sisters style cabaret. It was pricey for only 13 songs and one encore. We really enjoyed the singing, but again, $72 for a couple for only one hour was disappointing.

Thr Signature Theater in Shirlington, Va is a good solid local theater company. It will not displace Broadway and other major venues but it is an enjoyable theater with good plays and musicals performed by actors who have played on Broadway and other major theater locations in the U.S. We have seen performances such as Dream Girls, Elmer Gantry, and...

We've lived in the area for years, but this was our first visit here. We had a very difficult time finding a place to park. We found the theatre 20 minutes before the performance, but after searching for parking, we got to the theatre 2 minutes ahead. All parking was either filled or reserved. We finally found a spot a...
