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 the audience in a semi circle around the lazy Susan stage. All the seats were... More

Signature Theater always puts on a great show. The casting is always right on. The talent is excellent, and the productions are always top-notch. So it was with "Titanic". The cast was outstanding all around. Magnificent singing and voices. The staging was unique and engrossing, despite its minimalistic set, which was really perfect, because nothing got in the way of... More

Amazing performance. This play is on its way to Broadway. Music, musicians, actors, all excellent The person sitting next to me said that all the plays here are 'top notch' and never 'fail to entertain.' So, Signature Theater is a little jewel, with free parking, great restaurants one block away. What more does one need for a perfect evening out?... 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.

Signature Theatre never, ever disappoints it's audience. Their productions are top notch and critically acclaimed. Be sure to check out Ali's Bar upstairs before showtime or during intermission. The Food & Beverage Manager creatively designs a menu around each performance to help get you in the mood. The actors are of Broadway quality... in fact, many have performed on Broadway.... More

The Washington, D.C., metro area is incredibly lucky to have such an innovative and ambitious theater in its midst. Signature is a laboratory for new theater productions as well as a producer of ambitious, tested plays and musicals. We go about once a month. Highly recommend their summer Open House and cabarets as well as stage plays. During 2016 we... More

Very good play. The second half was very dramatic. Unfortunately, our seats were near the orchestra in the balcony and whenever they played it drowned out whatever the actors were saying / singing. Very bad choice of seats. I complained and maybe they'll fix the problem by putting plexiglass separating them from the patrons. Otherwise, DO NOT buy seats near... More

Signature is centrally located in Alexandria, VA. They offer a variety of live entertainment from stage plays to Cabarets. We attend the Woodstock Cabaret...great fun with live band and singers performing Woodstock classic songs in a very intimate cabaret setting. Very impressed with the talent...will be back for other offerings.

Last night we saw an Eric Schaffer production of the Titanic The Musical. It was not our favorite production and in fact it was just okay. But I still rate the theater a four out of five because it is consistently improving its talent pool and most of the productions are quite enjoyable; Last night the problem was that the... More
