About Pershing Square Signature Center

James Houghton founded and established Signature Theatre Company in 19991. The company was famed for devoting whole seasons of programming to a singular playwright. Since 2012, Signature has presented works by multiple playwrights in the same season with the introduction of residency and legacy programs.

In October 2008, plans emerged to construct The Pershing Square Signature Center to house all of Signature Theatre’s productions. The Off-Broadway complex, designed by Frank Gehry, finally opened in 2012. The complex contains three performance spaces, two rehearsal studios, and a communal area complete with a café, bar and bookstore.

The Irene Diamond Stage is the largest theatre with a capacity of 294 seats, while the Alice Griffin Jewel Box Theatre contains 191 seats. The adaptable Romulus Linney Courtyard Theatre can hold 199-250 people, depending on whether the production uses a thrust, alley or end stage format.

The Pershing Square Center’s performance spaces are also available to rent. Renowned Off-Broadway production company The New Group most often presents its new productions in the complex.
