Old Hats

Music and lyrics by and featuring Shaina Taub

January 26 - April 3, 2016

Now Playing! Extended Through April 3

After an extended, sold out run in 2013, Signature welcomes back Bill Irwin and David Shiner in their award-winning, critically acclaimed production of Old Hats. Called "one of the funniest shows of the past few years" by the New York Post, this production reunites the clowns with original director Tina Landau and introduces their new songstress and comic foil Shaina Taub, hailed as “a young Judy Garland meets grown-up Lisa Simpson” by the San Francisco Chronicle. Using music, technology, and movement, Irwin and Shiner combine their inimitable magic and slapstick to create an unforgettable outing that's fun for the whole family.

Angel Reapers

By Martha Clarke and Alfred Uhry
Directed and Choreographed by Martha Clarke

Now Playing! Extended Through March 20
 

Featuring traditional Shaker songs and a stunning mix of modern dance and actual Shaker movements, Angel Reapers captures the soul of the Shakers, an early American religious sect, which sought to connect with God through ecstatic ritual and strict celibacy. While the congregants strive desperately to maintain divine purity, the needs of the flesh threaten to take hold. With text by Pulitzer Prize winning playwright Alfred Uhry, this wildly theatrical collage about the glorious love of the divine and the overwhelming desire for human connection marks the return to Signature of Residency Five playwright and MacArthur “Genius” Award winner Martha Clarke.

Sig Socials: Contra Dance

February 26

Join us for an evening of dance at the first ever Sig Socials Contra Dance cohosted by Brooklyn Contra and featuring live music from Coracree! If Swing dancing and square dancing met in a bar, you’d get Contra. Couples form parallel lines and, over the course of the dance, move up and down the dance floor, interacting with every other couple in their line. There is no fancy footwork involved – anyone can do it! Bring a partner or come on your own, Contra Dancing is a great way to meet new people!

Daphne's Dive

By Quiara Alegría Hudes
Directed by Thomas Kail

April 26 - June 5, 2016

Daphne's Dive is a cheap corner bar in North Philly where Daphne and her vibrant, eclectic regulars drink to art, politics, and life. As Daphne's adopted daughter, very different from her reserved and pragmatic mother, grows up, this unconventional family is forced to confront who's an insider, who's an outsider, and the challenge of opening your heart to strangers.  Brimming with adversity, love and hope, this world premiere, directed by Thomas Kail (Hamilton), kicks off Quiara Alegría Hudes’ Signature residency.
