The Signature Project Premieres Off-Broadway


The Signature Project Premieres Off-Broadway

Congratulations to our own Patrick Dunning and his school assembly The Signature Project! This multifaceted artwork and performance is premiering Off-Broadway this March!  And there are a number of ways to enable your students to experience this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. 

The Signature Project is both a piece of artwork and a multi-sensory theatrical experience that’s been touring across the country and around the world since 1992.  At its core is a huge 76 ft x 36 ft mural layered with hidden secrets. A live performance brings the mural to life, with Patrick Dunning ingeniously weaving stories and images in the great tradition of Irish artists.

Every brushstroke that makes up the enormous canvas is actually a person’s signature—hence the name, The Signature Project.  And every signature has a story to tell.  Patrick has travelled and collected thousands of signatures on the many square panels that make up his giant mural. Along with that, each 3ft-by-3ft wide panel also has its own unique secret to share. 

The Signature Project is constantly recognized as an outstanding example of how music, art, science, technology, nature, critical thinking and the global impact of diverse cultures touches each and every one of us. And NOW, The Signature Project will make its debut Off-Broadway in New York City, March 8 to 25, at the Sheen Center’s Loreto Theatre!  The original assembly and presentation of The Signature Project is enhanced in the Off-Broadway version with 360-degree projection, live jazz and Irish dancers, and many more surprises!  Tickets start at just $45. 

At Academic Entertainment, our presenters are our family. And it’s been our pleasure and privilege to work with Patrick in bringing his program to students across the United States for more than 15 years.  We are so proud of this amazing achievement for Patrick and The Signature Project!   That’s why we’re celebrating and giving our friends and customers, a special code: AESIGNATURE for $10 off tickets to see The Signature Project Directed by Eric Paul Vitale this March!
