As previously reported, Signature's season will feature two other works by Mee: the world premiere of the musical Queens Boulevard (November 6-December 30), directed by Davis McCallum; and the world premiere of Paradise Park (February 12-April 6), directed by Daniel Fish. In May 2008, the theater will present a new production of Edward Albee's Occupant as part of its Legacy Series.

The 2009-2010 season will be devoted to the plays of Suzan-Lori Parks, and in 2010-2011, the theater will produce the works of Tony Kushner.
