Signature Theatre Company

About: View in admin

Founded in 1991 by the late James Houghton, Signature makes an extended commitment to a playwright’s body of work. In 2014, Signature became the first New York City theatre to receive the Regional Theatre Tony Award®. Signature serves its mission at The Pershing Square Signature Center, a three-theatre facility on West 42nd Street designed by Frank Gehry Architects. At the Center, Signature continues its founding Playwright-in-Residence model as Residency One, a first-of-its-kind, intensive exploration of a single writer’s body of work. Residency Five supports multiple playwrights by guaranteeing each writer three productions over a five-year period. The Legacy Program invites writers from both residencies back for productions of premiere or earlier plays.
