Three hours long, including two intermissions. But does not seem long, if that makes sense.

Splendid acting. But we both found it impossible to care about most of the characters. Johnny deals drugs to kids and befouls the very corner of England he supposedly loves. He lies. He cheats. Who cares?

Three hours with 3 intermissions. I was not expecting that. The set is really cool but the play was super boring.

I loved this play. Brian Dykstra was excellent in the role of Rooster, and the supporting actors as his band of misfits and outcasts were excellent as well. I say go see it!

Quotes & Highlights

Jerusalem — which deftly encompasses comedy and violence, the sacred and the profane, the contemporary and the mythic - casts a magical spell." -SF Examiner
“San Francisco Playhouse may not exactly be building Jerusalem, but they’ve done something far more pragmatic: shown that three-hour plays (complete with two intermissions) can still keep an audience rapt and waiting for more … this heroic production will linger long in the hearts of the audience.” —Stark Insider

Description

Jerusalem is recommended for ages 16+. The production has a run time of 3 hours and contains strobe lights, theatrical haze, and herbal stage cigarettes.

About the Ticket Supplier: San Francisco Playhouse

The aim of the SF Playhouse is to provide a creative home and inspiring environment where actors, directors, writers, designers and theater lovers converge to create works that celebrate the human spirit. Founded by Bill English and Susi Damilano in 2003, SF Playhouse is Union Square’s intimate, professional theatre. Using professional actors and world-class design, the SF Playhouse — which won the Bay Guardian‘s 2006 Best Off Broadway Theatre Award and about which the San Francisco Chronicle raved "San Francisco’s newest theatre isn’t just another tiny stage carved out of a storefront…it’s an enticing introduction to a new company" — has become an intimate theatre alternative to the traditional Union Square theatre fare, garnering 20 Bay Area Theatre Critic nominations in its first year.
