A wonderful live theater experience, with true San Francisco dramatic cultural energy. The acting and sets are a top-notch first rate pleasure, and they send you on an exciting ride through realistic but highly imaginative dramas, often including life and death sprinkled with plenty of humor.

Saw Camelot here at the last minute. So many seats were unsold. It is a charming venue with every seat having an excellent view. Nice bar selling drinks and snacks.

Camelot performed on Broadway with Richard Burton on stage and Richard Harris on film, does not hold up well to the 21st century for this production. Performances felt slightly stilted and they did not evoke people from the time period. Costumes were formulaic and did not inspire heroism or romantism, that this play demands. Songs were ok, and particularly Guinevere and Lancelot voices were strong. Set design good and well thought out. If King Arthur said proposition one more time....and who the heck were Jenny and Lance??? Cast overall were good but not outstanding.

Camelot was great in such a cozy little theater. The theater takes you back in time, and the talent was great! I always enjoy being so close to the stage that you can feel the emotions and see every facial expression. This was a beautiful night out in San Francisco!

Thoroughly enjoyed the production of Camelot although some of the acting was subpar, and the "lusty month of May" was a bit too risque for the children in the audience.

The stage is quite small for which they've accommodate well with a rotating set; however, without the tall ceiling, there is no provision for curtains or backdrops.

If you've been to Broadway, this production will seem mundane.
