Signature Theatre (James Houghton, Founding Artistic Director; Erika Mallin, Executive Director) is pleased to present the special return engagement of Old Hats, created and performed by Bill Irwin and David Shiner, now with music and lyrics by and featuring Shaina Taub. Tina Landau will once again direct the production The New York Times called "the secret to eternal youth!"

After an extended, sold out run in 2013, Signature welcomes back Bill Irwin and David Shiner in their award-winning, critically acclaimed production of Old Hats. This production reunites the clowns with original director Tina Landau and introduces their new songstress and comic foil Shaina Taub, hailed as “a young Judy Garland meets grown-up Lisa Simpson” by the San Francisco Chronicle. Using music, technology, and movement, Irwin and Shiner combine their inimitable magic and slapstick to create an unforgettable outing that's fun for the whole family.

The design team includes G.W. Mercier (Scenic and Costume Design), Scott Zielinski (Lighting Design), John Gromada (Sound Design), Wendall K. Harrington (Projection Design). David H. Lurie is the Production Stage Manager. Casting by Telsey + Company, Will Cantler, CSA.
