What You Can Expect

San Francisco Playhouse Theater Performance

See 'Seminar' performing through June 14, 2014

At your selected show time, head to Union Square for a show at the San Francisco Playhouse, a beautiful, intimate 200-seat venue housed on the second floor of Kensington Park Hotel. This gorgeous 1925 Gothic-style building revisits an era of elegance and historic San Francisco charm, and the stylish lobby showcases hand-painted ceilings and modern artwork and serves complimentary tea and sherry.

Established in 2003, the San Francisco Playhouse features multiple performances each year. The theater garnered 20 Bay Area Theatre Critic nominations in its first year alone, and is the winner of SF Weekly’s Best Theatre Award and the San Francisco Bay Guardian's Best Off-Broadway Theatre Award.


Now playing: The 2014 season

Storefront Church (West Coat Premier)
By John Patrick Shanley (Tony, Oscar and Pulitzer award-winner)
Directed by Joy Carlin
November 26, 2013 to January 11, 2014

God vs. Gelt. Is it a moral failing to collect the rent? Find out when a politically savvy Bronx borough politician faces a Pentecostal minister who's short on faith. Will the mortgage get paid? If so, at what cost? An appropriate Christmas tale, where gluttonous bankers devour giant gingerbread houses, a disillusioned preacher rediscovers his faith, and a modern day Scrooge is redeemed.

Jerusalem (West Coast Premiere)
By Jez Butterworth
Directed by Bill English
January 21 to March 8, 2014

Everyone wants Johnny. His son wants to go to the county fair. His mates want his stash and his booze. County officials want him evicted. Whatever happened to the simple life in the country? Come find out in this hit Tony and Olivier winning play!

Bauer (World Premiere)
By Lauren Gunderson
Directed by Bill English
March 18 to April 29, 2014

Why did he stop? Imprisoned by the Nazis, he sketched on scraps. His fiery love affair with Hilla Rebay (Guggenheim curator) lasted a lifetime. The Guggenheim was built to house his work. Why did the genius that survived all that suddenly stop painting? Catch the world premier of this San Francisco Playhouse commissioned work.

Seminar (Bay Area Premiere)
By Theresa Rebeck
Directed by Amy Glazer
April 29 to June 14, 2014

Five hundred dollars a week for all the abuse you can take. And maybe sex. That's what four aspiring novelists pay for a ten-week private writing class with the legendary Leonard. It's a smorgasbord of vicious, and very funny, wordplay, as innocence collides with experience in this biting Broadway comedy about power, sex, and art.

Into the Woods (Revival)
Music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim,
Book by James Lapine
Directed by Susi Damilano
June 24 to September 6, 2014

What happens after "happily ever after"? In Sondheim and Lapine’s beloved musical retelling of the Grimm classics, a parade of familiar folktale figures find their way into the woods and try to get home before dark.
