We saw the "Freaky Friday" show which was excellent. The theater is small - doesn't sit a lot of people, and every seat is very good, so it makes the theater experience very nice. They have a large lobby that has a bar for drinks and some seats, etc.

Go see it. Lead actresses are amazing! If you have to travel to see it book a room at the Hilton Garden Inn. It is right across the street.

I thoroughly enjoy the Signature Theater as a venue. We had tickets in the dress circle on the third floor but all the sight lines are excellent and all seats are close to the stage. Freaky Friday - the new Musical premiered this week and it's a fun high energy show with an excellent cast. With all the nearby restaurants... More

I saw Jelly's Last Jam at Signature Theatre. I was seated in the three floor, dress circle row. I had a great view of the entire performance. Visited the bar prior to the performance; paid $8 for a mixed drink. They allow you to take drinks in the theatre if they are in a plastic cup. Good audio, helpful usher,... More

If you love the best of Broadway and London it's nearby in the Shirington section of Arlington, VA. Very close to Washington, DC. And, close to Broadway. It's very close to I-395 exit. New theatre with state of the art production features. Techically it's two separate and distinct "black-box" theater." The MAX seats approx 300, and with great flexibility can... More

I recently visited the Signature Theater for the first time. I was drawn there to see the production of Jelly's Last Jam which in and of itself was a SPECTACULAR performance!!! It was no doubt a Broadway caliber show with such talented performers. It was made even more special by the intimate setting of the Signature Theater and the flexibility... More

Attended Bird Cage presentation for a Saturday matinee. Enjoyed all the antics of the cast and also meeting many after performance. Performance was as good according to several audience members as a presentation in Washington, DC, a couple years ago. Seating was a bit close though not uncomfortable. Tickets reasonably priced for a close to date performance. Atmosphere excellent. Kudos... More

Signature Theatre put Arlington, VA on the musical theater map...and there's a good reason it won a regional theater Tony award: Signature's high production values, willingness to try new productions and experiment, modern black-box facilities and plenty of support space. Oh yeah: A handy supply of great actors, singers, directors, musicians, support staff, etc. Only issue I've ever had: The... More

I've been to to shows here recently, and both were outstanding. I really like the smaller setting. Parking is easy and free; there aren't the hassles of driving into DC and then paying a fortune to park. The shows are top notch.

We have never been disappointed with Signature Theatre and I'll bet you won't be either. The theatre is located within Shirlington Village so you can easily take public transportation or park the car once and walk to dinner and the theatre. Once inside the theatre, start your adventure with a pre-performance libation at the award winning Ali's bar located upstairs,... More
