Blood Knot at the Signature Theater

The Signature Theater was founded in 1991 by James Houghton. Houghton’s goal was to explore and celebrate playwrights in a deeper way, frequently devoting an entire season of performances to works by one living contemporary writer.

This year the theater moved to its new home, a space designed by the illustrious architect Frank Gehry in such a way as to give form to the lofty ambitions of Houghton’s dream.

The Signature Center is now the home to three major Off-Broadway venues: a 299-seat main stage; a 199-seat miniature opera house; and a versatile courtyard theater named in honor of the late Romulus Linney.

If you come today at 2pm, Sunday February 26th, you will be able to enjoy the remake of Athol Fugard’s 1961 allegory about racism, Blood Knot. More performances of this tale about two brothers from South Africa will take place at the following times:

Tue 7:30pm; Wed 2pm, 7:30pm; Mar 01 – Mar 02 7:30pm; Mar 03 2pm, 8pm. Ending: Sun Mar 11 2pm.
