Accessible Seating

Signature Theatre offers seating in every price range and seating section for patrons who use wheelchairs, walkers, scooters or other mobility devices. Tickets are available online (noted with wheelchair icons for wheelchair accessible seating and the letter C for companion seating), but we recommend calling the Box Office at 703 820 9771 so that we can discuss which seating options will best meet your needs.


Parking is available in specially marked spaces in each of the garages. For the closest access, we recommend the bottom floor of the Randolph Square or Campbell garages. Click here for a detailed parking map.

Assistive Listening Devices

Thanks to generous donations from Mary Ann Gilleece and Lola C. Reinsch, we have a brand new Sennheiser Assistive listening system installed to improve the quality and clarity of sound for our patrons who are hard of hearing. In addition to earbud receivers, we also have the ability to support headphones or to connect to t-coil hearing aids. Devices are available for use free of charge at coat check in The Mead Lobby. We will ask you to leave your driver’s license or other ID while using the device.

Sign Interpreted, Closed Caption or Audio Described Performances

Signature is pleased to offer various accommodations for our patrons. To request an accommodation please contact the Box Office at 703 820 9771 or no later than two-three weeks prior to the performance and specify what type of accommodation is preferred. Signature will work with you and our providers to make the best accommodation for the patron and the show. Giving the Box Office more advance notice (4 weeks) will allow best seating options, better date availability and more options.

There will be an audio described performance of Ain’t Misbehvin’ on Friday, March 8 at 8PM. Please call the box office at 703 820 9771 to purchase tickets.
