Virginia’s Signature Theatre is returning after an 8-month hiatus & they have truly learned how to pivot! Their 2021 season lineup titled Signature Features will include five fully-staged productions filmed in HD exclusively for the web.
Kicking off the season is Simply Sondheim, a revamped musical revue that was done for the theatre’s 25th anniversary but now includes 30 songs by legendary composer/lyricist Stephen Sondheim staged and directed by Matthew Gardiner. The show begins streaming on Feb 2nd and will be available through March 26 on Marquee TV.
Norm Lewis, Solea Pfeiffer, Conrad Ricamora, Tracy Lynn Olivera, Nicholas McDonough, Paul Scanlan, Awa Sal Secka, Donna Migliaccio, Bobby Smith, Emily Skinner, Katie Mariko Murray, and Christopher Mueller round out the cast performing classic Sondheim songs including “Finishing the Hat,” “Another Hundred People,” “Losing My Mind,” and “The Worst Pies in London.”
The full season lineup includes Daniel J Watts‘ “The Jam: Only Child,” directed by Liliana Blain-Cruz, “After Midnight: Celebrating the Duke Ellington Years,” directed and choreographed by Jared Grimes with music direction by Mark G.
