We went to see Jesus Christ Superstar at the Signature for Mother's Day. While I can't say I was thrilled with the show, the theater has a lot to be said for it. Firstly, It is very easy for handicapped people to access it and...More

This was our first time at the Signature theater. What a cool place! We didn't know they had a bar area outside the theaters and didn't arrive in time to have a drink before the show. The theater was sort of in the round, with...More

Titanic was done in a black box style, with the audience on all four sides. It was a very emotional musical and it had me crying. The acting was excellent, as was the venue.

Saw the Titanic yesterday at Signature and it is a wonderful show! The actors and musicians do an outstanding job. I would recommend that you see this show before it closes at the end of the month.

One of the reviews from 2014 said that the chairs were "ice cream parlor" chairs with a shelf for beverages. Was that the old theatre before they moved? Doesn't sound very comfortable. Also, are the shows done somewhat as we know them, or do they do a modern twist, as in no staging or costumes etc? Most of the reviews are very good, so I'm inclined to give it a try.

The chairs were regular chairs, comfortable enough and no shelf for beverages. Costumes were typical for a play or musical. The theater we were in had a lazy Susan type stage (with half stage behind wall for set changes) and... More
