Performances begin January 30 for the Signature Theatre’s production of Edward Albee’s At Home at the Zoo, an evening of two plays by the late, celebrated playwright directed by Drama Desk Award winner Lila Neugebauer (Everybody, The Wolves). The production is in honor of former resident playwright Albee, who passed away in 2016.
