Theater in New York: Signature Center’s playwright portraits (slide show)

Spot some of our greatest dramatists on the walls of the Pershing Square Signature Center.

The walls have ears—and eyes and mouths—at Signature Theatre Company’s multistage new home. Scattered throughout the complex are black-and-white portraits of every playwright to whom the company has devoted a New York theater season in the past. Edward Albee and Arthur Miller loom near the stairs; Romulus Linney watches over the theater that bears his name; Tony Kushner peeks out of the hall to the men’s bathroom. Theater fans can test their cred by seeing how many writers’ faces they recognize in the Signature’s halls of fame. And just trying to find all of them—Paula Vogel is a tricky one!—provides a neat excuse to explore the Frank Gehry–designed space.
