At Signature, a contemplative new play that asks us to take a step back and enjoy life's pleasures as we consider where life takes us.
From the producers: What are we here for? Is time a friend or an enemy? Do we all eventually end up in the same place, but take different routes to get there? This funny, moving, and thought-provoking new play challenges the notion of what really matters and recognizes the importance of life’s simple pleasures. (All of which might sound dreary, but there’s a chance this will be a really good experience.)
Audience Note: Strobe lights, haze effects and latex materials will be used in this production.

What's the Signature Theatre? Signature is a highly-regarded Off-Broadway company founded in 1991. Signature focused each of its first 20 seasons on the work of a single playwright - Sam Shepard, Romulus Linney, Horton Foote, Lanford Wilson, August Wilson, etc. With the opening of the spectacular new Signature Center just west of Times Square, the company has expanded its annual offerings. Tickets, highly subsidized since 2005 by the company's Signature Ticket Initiative, are only $25. More here.
