“Theatre at the Signature”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

The Signature is a pleasant theatre with 2 stages, one a traditional arrangement with the actors facing the audience straight on and the second with seating on 3 sides of the stage. My wife and I have seen performances at the Signature a number of times during the last several years. The performances are at least good, and occasionally outstanding. We particularly enjoy the intimacy of the stage with audience on 3 sides. The designs of both performance areas are such that every seat would give a good view.

“Signature Open House”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

I LOVE Signature theater, it is a local theater gem!

Every summer keep your eyes peeled they have a FREE open house with concert in Shirlington Village. The open house is awesome and has great deals on season tickets. I took advantage of this deal and have been enjoying shows throughout the season.

Great place to visit, great location with restaurants for before or after show activities.

“Broadway theatre in DC area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

Signature is always "true to the music" as my old radio station would say. Their productions are lush and professional and thoughtful and new and alive. Their voices and musicians are wonderful. Take Metro to Pentagon City, then a $12 cab ride to the theatre to "Tony" (yup, double meaning) Shirlington. Look 'em up on the web and plan on dinner in very trendy Shirlington. Plan on admiring cute dogs, too.

“Favorite Local Theatre”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

We like to go early and sit by the window while sipping wine and having a bite to eat from the bar. The theatres are all nicely designed and the shows are always amazing.

This was a great little 2 person musical with a 6 person band. It was very enjoyable. This is a little theatre on the second floor of the Shirlington library.
