Signature Theatre, a leading producer of groundbreaking musical theater and innovative contemporary work, opened its $16 million two-theater building in Arlington, Virginia
in January 2007. Signature Theatre is a home-grown theater that is renowned for combining Broadway-quality productions with an intimate playing space, and using live orchestras with unamplified performers. After 13 years, the local theater outgrew its converted garage space and relocated to this modern urban setting.
The 48,000 square foot facility features state-of-the-art equipment, expansive office space, and top-notch technical facilities. With two flexible black box theatersone holding 299 seats and the other 99 seats, Signature Theatre can now present mainstage shows to larger audiences while reserving an intimate space for other performances. This expansion allows Signature to continue its role in developing new works and provide space to accommodate the growing demand for educational programs.
Signature Theatre is located at the corner of S. 28th and S. Stafford Streets in the heart of the expanded Shirlington Village
in Arlington, Virginia. A 550-car free parking garage is adjacent to the building.
