Signature Theatre sets winter/spring 2024 season
The theatre company will put on three plays between January and April, all three of which are written by resident playwrights at Signature Theatre.
Signature Theatre has announced its winter/spring 2024 season, which consists of three plays, two of which are returning to New York after prior premieres and one of which is a world premiere. All the plays will take place at the company's Pershing Square Signature Center.
First, from January 30 to March 10, is Sunset Baby by Dominique Morisseau (Skeleton Crew, Confederates, Ain't Too Proud). The play takes place when Kenyatta, a former Black revolutionary and political prisoner, reenters his daughter Nina's life to find redemption and a piece of her late mom's legacy. As the personal and political collide, Nina finds her own liberation from her family's past. Steve H. Broadnax III (Thoughts of a Colored Man on Broadway) directs.
Next in the season is Sarah Ruhl's Orlando, playing from April 2 to May 12. Will Davis directs creator/performer Taylor Mac in the title role, a person who goes on a journey through centuries and genders. The play is adapted from Virginia Woolf's classic novel. Ruhl was represented at Signature earlier this year with the world premiere of Letters From Max.
Finally, Annie Tippe will direct the world premiere of Dave Malloy's musical Three Houses; the two previously collaborated on the multi-award-winning Octet at Signature. Three Houses is a "post-pandemic open mic night parable" in which three strangers — from Latvia, Ireland, and New Mexico — discuss magic, madness, and the end of the world.
