What a great place to see a show- intimate theatre nestled inside a hotel. Staff were warm and friendly and truly seemed to love their jobs and the theatre. The show, King of the Yees was Amazing! High recommend and would definitely go back again!

What a great production. I live in SF and simply do not attend this theater often enough. Always delighted. Strong performances for the singers and a small, but nice-sounding LIVE pit orchestra. Highly recommended.

Went for a Sunday matinee of “Sunday in the park with George”. I’ve always wanted to see this play. We were front row on the mezzanine, very good view. The actors were excellent, wonderful singers!
