Signature scores $10 million

Donation names troupe's largest theater

Off Broadway’s Signature Theater will name the largest of its three new performances spaces the Irene Diamond Stage, courtesy of a $10 million donation in support of the company and its newly opened, multi-venue facility.

The $66 million Pershing Square Signature Center — so dubbed in the wake of a $25 million gift from the Pershing Square Foundation — opened earlier this year. The Diamond Stage, formerly known as the End Stage, is a 299-seat space hosting the troupe’s revival of Edward Albee’s “The Lady From Dubuque.”

Also housed in the center is the 199-seat Romulus Linney Courtyard Theater, named after the first playwright to be honored by Signature with a full season devoted to his work, and the Alice Griffin Jewel Box, a proscenium space that also seats 199.

Irene Diamond Fund hands out coin to support public health and public policy, human rights and performing arts.

Next show to land on the Diamond Stage is the world preem of Kenneth Lonergan’s “Medieval Play.”
