 "Critics' Pick! The boys are back in town! Lifts everyone’s spirits!"

 The New York Times

"Downright hysterical! The rubber-limbed clowns are as irresistible as ever. Taub is right in step with Irwin and Shiner’s wacky sensibility!" 

 Entertainment Weekly

"Bursting with comic freshness and vitality!"

Hollywood Reporter 

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.
