The theater has a great little bar - cheap and the b artgender tghe night we went gave extremely generous wine pours. For food, we ate at the Bangkok cafe, a little slot restaurant on Powell up about a block and a half from BART. You may be the only non-Asians inside - a mark of good, authentic food. GREAT dinner for 2 was $16.86! Our favoritge SF restaurant!

The Powell street BART station is just 3 blocks away. Parking would be expensive and difficult.

Dreadful overacting and poor scene transition. I left at intermission. Theatre service was also very poor. It took them 20 minutes to get 20 people into the theatre. I stood in line for 25 minutes and when they had finally got me in, the show...continued

Description

The Shelton Theater presents Clifford Odets’ Golden Boy, co-directed by Jean and Matthew Shelton. It is a heartwrenching story of a young boxer torn between his musical gifts and the money he can make as a champion fighter. The play first appeared in the U.S, during the Great Depression and examines the price we pay when we choose materialistic needs over spiritual ones. Hernan Battiato, Nicole Slovenic, and Robert Nelson play the title roles.
