A Signature Season
Signature Theatre's lineup for the 2005-06 season has just been announced, and I'm happy to report that the opener is "Urinetown." For those of you not immediately excited about a musical named after a bodily function, let me assure you that "Urinetown" is supposed to be a great show -- it won three Tony Awards in 2002 and was scheduled to come to Washington a couple of years ago but the D.C. dates on its national tour wound up getting canceled.
In addition to "Urinetown," which runs from Aug. 16 to Oct. 2, the Signature lineup includes the new play "Yemaya's Belly" (Nov. 8-Dec. 18); a new musical about Edgar Allan Poe called "Nevermore" (Jan. 10-Feb. 18); Stephen Sondheim's "Into the Woods" (date TBD); and "The Sex Habits of American Women" (date TBD). Those last two will be performed in Signature's new $12.5 million complex, now under construction at the Village of Shirlington.
In other theater news, "columbinus" -- a timely show about the Columbine shootings that's even more timely given this week's tragic shootings in Minnesota -- has been extended. It's now running at Round House Silver Spring through April 10 and, as I said in a previous blog post, is well worth seeing. -- Jen
