New York Times and Time Out New York Critics' Pick!
 

"Four Stars! You won’t see anything so fearlessly weird and original all year.”

- David Cote, Time Out New York

“These works still have the power to engage, amuse and, above all, disturb.”

-Ben Brantley, The New York Times

"A treat for the eyes as well as the brain!”

-Pete Hempstead, TheaterMania

 

In honor of Signature’s 25th Anniversary, Signature Plays revisits the work of three Legacy playwrights with Edward Albee’s The Sandbox, María Irene Fornés’ Drowning, and Adrienne Kennedy’s Funnyhouse of a Negro. Directed by Lila Neugebauer (A.R. Gurney’s The Wayside Motor Inn), this trio of plays, all produced during their author’s original Playwright-in-Residence season, celebrates Signature’s rich and diverse history over the past quarter century.

Please Note: This production contains use of a strobe light as well as haze effects.
