Be My Valentine, Signature Theater

February 14, 2013 § Leave a comment

Last Friday I went to see David Henry Hwang’s The Dance and the Railroad at the Signature Theater.  It was – it is – EXCELLENT.  What, specifically, was excellent?  Off the top of my head, I’d say the writing, the performances, the direction, the set, the lights, the sound . . . please just go see it already.

More broadly, if you’re not already familiar, please acquaint yourself with the Signature Theater.  Beyond the stand-alone excellence of their productions, they provide the opportunity to get to know the work of important playwrights – like Mr. Hwang – more deeply, via their mission and programming philosophy

Also, on a related note, I heard on the radio yesterday that the Signature theater had the highest rate of actors of color in their productions – this in a climate in which only 23% of actors performing on NYC stages are not white. 

High-Five, Signature! I love you.
