Which Way to the Stage

December 6, 2022 – January 22, 2023


A playful yet profound comedy about friendship, ambition, and what happens when dreams fall just out of reach.

Broadway superfans Jeff and Judy eagerly await their idol Idina Menzel after her performance in If/Then at the stage door every night. But when a sexy stranger enters the scene and upends their decades-long friendship, the musical theater aficionados have to go off book to rewrite their own finale.

Signature’s new Associate Artistic Director Ethan Heard makes his directorial debut with this funny and touching play about the roles we perform and transcending one’s “type.”

“The best new comedy since theatres reopened.”
