SigSpace brings artistic programming to the Center’s public spaces and sustains their lobby as a free public workspace and social hub for New York City artists. In the Spring of 2020, after the pandemic hit, they pivoted to launch SigSpace virtually and re-imagine engagement with their community during this moment in history.

Spring and Summer 2021

Until it is safe and you are comfortable returning to the Center, Signature Theatre  will continue to connect virtually and they have a slew of new and exciting SigSpace events to tease, curated by their resident playwrights: Branden Jacobs-Jenkins, Quiara Alegría Hudes, Samuel D. Hunter, The Mad Ones, Dominique Morisseau and Lynn Nottage. Click here to watch past SigSpace events.
