Time Out Says

Signature Theatre, founded by James Houghton in 1991, focuses on exploring and celebrating playwrights in depth, with whole seasons devoted to works by individual living writers. In 2012, it moved to a home base equal to its lofty ambitions. Designed by star architect Frank Gehry, the new Signature Center comprises three major Off Broadway spaces: a 299-seater main stage, a 199-seat miniature opera house and a malleable courtyard theater named for the late Romulus Linney.

What's On

Twilight: Los Angeles, 1992

  • Drama

The Signature continues its dive into the oeuvre of documentary-theater VIP Anna Deavere Smith with a revival of her 1993 investigation into the riots that tore up Los Angeles after four policers were aquitted of using excessive force in the videotaped beating and arrest of Rodney King. A follow-up to Smith's 1992 Fires in the Mirror, the piece was originally performed by the playwright herself as a virtuoso multicharacter solo show; this version, directed by Taibi Magar, features an ensemble cast.
