We went to the Saturday matinee and parked at the Donatello hotel. It was only $10 for 5 hours so you have plenty of time before or after for a bite to eat before or after. There's a half price happy hour at the hotel restaurant too

There's a small lot off Geary St., down an ally. $15 for Sunday. Not bad.

Quotes & Highlights

“A.C.T.‘s Rock rolls in Stoppard’s genius. Heartbreaking. Extraordinary!” -San Francisco Examiner
“Stylish. Captivating. The dialog crackles.” _-Contra Costa Times_
“One of Stoppard’s most personal and teasingly passionate plays.” —San Francisco Chronicle

Description

A rapturous, decades-spanning tale of Prague’s rock revolution, Tom Stoppard’s Rock ‘n’ Roll follows the passions and politics of a Marxist professor in Cambridge and his Rolling Stones–obsessed protégé fighting for freedom in Soviet-dominated Prague. Nominated for four 2008 Tony Awards, Rock ‘n’ Roll pulsates to the beat of the Stones, Pink Floyd, and Syd Barrett, Floyd’s disturbed genius, whose reclusive life becomes a haunting motif of the play.
