A local community theater that is terrific. Seats about 150, all of which are good. Live theater is at its best at this venue. We saw the play Bad Jew, which should not be missed. Incredible acting, by two of the four actors. All four did a great job, but the two leads were amazing. Their energy, effort, diction, stage... More

This is a small little theater in historic downtown Hot Springs so don't expect a big Broadway production. But it's a very unassuming and charming family operated business that is meant for an evening of clean family fun. I was there with my 10 year old granddaughter for the 8pm showing on a Friday evening and it was a full... More

Magic's performances are always a dive into new theater work, sometimes tackling some intense issues and emotions, often very funny, but never dull or ordinary. If you visit San Francisco, consider a visit to the Magic as you'll likely see a completely original work. Magic is our 'at the fore-front' theatrical experience. It started with Sam Shepard several decades ago... More

I love the format of this show! They invite you in an hour early for drinks and/or appetizers and the magician comes around and does tricks for you at your table. He bent a fork in my hand and levitated the card I had chosen earlier out of my husband's hands. And OK, my husband is quite visually disbled, to... More

Looking for a good play to see in the next week (closes April 22)...go see Any Given Day at the Magic Theater here in SF at Fort Mason...the tag line of the play is "A story about the moment when everything changes..." A haunting, riveting play! http://magictheatre.org/season/any-given-day

Staying in Marina District

Neighborhood Profile
Marina District
Beautiful homes, beautiful people, and a beautiful backdrop of the Golden Gate Bridge welcome visitors to the Marina. Originally the location for the Panama-Pacific International Exposition in 1915 (whose remnants can be seen at the Palace of Fine Arts), much of the land was filled and flattened to accommodate a world’s fair. That ample space has given way to a jogger’s paradise at the northern edge of the city. With the picturesque bay setting as its backdrop, it’s no surprise that the area has hosted numerous movie productions. Daytime activities focus on café culture and boutique shopping, while the evenings turn this neighborhood into a party-going hotspot.
