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...

We are theater people, and the show we saw was as good as any we've seen off Broadway. Professional on all levels, and a nice break from all the monuments.

The work here is consistently good. The space is well-designed and comfortable. Sight lines are always good. Customer service is strong -- and follow-up marketing is quite good, though persistent (for those who don't care for frequent email updates, beware). This is one of the best theatres in the region. I've never been disappointed.

Lots of energy and fun. Price was right using Goldstar. It's not the Kennedy Center but you aren't paying those prices either. Seating is ice cream parlor chairs with leaning shelf for beverage on stairstepped platform.

Signature is a gem of a gem in Shirlington. They produce shows that could easily go straight to Broadway - I have seen some of the top talent in the East Coast come and give performances. The theater is intimate - you are so close to the performances that you can hardly believe it. I have never seen a bad... More
