The Marsh hosts some of the US' top solo performers. These gifted artists can hold your attention on stage - with little or no props - for over an hour with their stories. Some of the artists can portray as many as 10 different characters in the space of a performance. Others are more straight up stories about the life... More

I wish I could give this theatre a higher rating because I REALLY enjoyed the performance. (Grumpy old Jew by Charlie Varon) However I felt the theatre itself was lacking in several area. The first was that we couldn't by tickets online. It was Saturday morning when we were researching plays to see for Sunday night. The Marsh lets you... More

One of the best entertainment deal in San Francisco The Marsh is the internationally known for solo performance theater. It's almost impossible to see a show at The Marsh that won't give you something to think about and and realize what a great theater experience can be. With two stages in San Francisco and two in Berkeley, both near BART... More

If you're looking for an inexpensive evening out with a friend(s), go to the Marsh's website and see what shows are lined up. The theater is small and they tend to have one-person shows. Plan an evening of dinner at Gather, (or one of... More

I recently saw Brian Copeland's "The Waiting Period" at The Marsh. What a delightful surprise. The Marsh is a tiny little theater that is just what the doctor ordered. A venue for new and unfolding artists, The Marsh seats, maybe 100+ people, so everyone is in the first row! Loved the show and wouldn't hesitate to see another performance there... More

Caught a provocative performance of All My Children by improvisor Matt Smith. This 90 minute show was a funny, evocative exploration of paths not taken - a childless man of a certain age looks up all his old girlfriends, arranges to meet their kids and announces he's their father! Have enjoyed numerous performances over the years at the Marsh, which... More

If you want some good theater, I've been going to The Marsh for years. Fun area of the Mission as well. Warning: the normal people crowd thins late at night, especially on week nights. You don't want to be out with the folks who are left. http://www.themarsh.org/
