Signature Theatre's new production of Charles Fuller's 1980 drama, Zooman and the Sign, directed by Stephen McKinley Henderson, opened March 24 as the final production of Signature's season-long tribute to the Negro Ensemble Company.

According to Signature, "A random act of violence devastates Reuben Tate's family and scares their once caring community into silence. While young Zooman terrorizes the neighborhood, Reuben makes a dangerous appeal which may tear their world apart. This powerful drama by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Charles Fuller (A Soldier's Play) depicts the horrifying aftermath of violence on a family and community."

The troupe includes Ron Canada ("Wedding Crashers," "Cinderella Man"), Amari Cheatom (Lower Ninth), Rosalyn Coleman (Radio Golf, Seven Guitars, The Piano Lesson), Peter Jay Fernandez (Cyrano de Bergerac, Julius Caesar, Henry IV), Lynda Gravatt (Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, King Hedley II), Tre Davis (NYSF's Hamlet), Jamal Mallory-McCree (The Fabulous Miss Marie), Evan Parke (The Lion King) and Portia (The Ride Down Mt. Morgan, Our Lady of 121st Street).

Here is a look at the opening-night reception, held at 10th Avenue eatery 44 1/2:
