Signature Theatre has announced a student rush policy for its production of Stephen Adly Guirgis's Our Lady of 121st Street as it begins its final week of performances.

Student rush tickets will be sold for $30 when the ground-floor box office opens each day up until performance time. The tickets are only available for purchase in person and are subject to availability. Each person is limited to two tickets, and a valid student ID must be presented at the time of purchase.

Our Lady of 121st Street is the second production of Guirgis's Signature residency, which began last fall with the critically acclaimed, extended production of Jesus Hopped the ‘A' Train, directed by Mark Brokaw. Our Lady of 121st Street marks Rashad's New York City directorial debut.

After the death of the beloved Sister Rose, a group of her former students return to their Harlem neighborhood to pay respects. But at the funeral home, there's a problem — her dead body has been stolen. The irreverently brash and insightful dark comedy paints a vividly comic portrait of what happens when old friends meet old wounds and how old habits die hard.

The cast includes Joey Auzenne (House of Cards), Obie Award winner Quincy Tyler Bernstine (Ruined), Erick Betancourt (Jesus Hopped the ‘A' Train), Maki Borden (A 24-Decade History of Popular Music), Jimonn Cole (Peter and the Starcatcher), John Doman (The Wire), Dierdre Friel (Search Party), Hill Harper (The Good Doctor), Kevin Isola (Billions), Stephanie Kurtzuba (The Good Wife), Paola Lázaro (To the Bone), and John Procaccino (Incident at Vichy).
