Sutter Stockton parking was only $3 if you don't mind walking 2+ blocks to save the $21-36 nearby hotel lots.

The Stockton/Sutter garage is incredibly cheap and it is a very short walk to the theater.

Description

Bell, Book and Candle

By John Van Druten

Directed by Bill English

December 4, 2012 – January 19, 2013

Bewitched, bothered and bewildered. That’s what happens when you fall in love with a witch. But is it worth it? Our good witch (well, fairly good) Gillian risks everything — if she falls for him she could lose her magical powers forever. A romantic Christmas Eve comedy from the ’50s.

The Motherf@%ker With the Hat

Written by Stephen Adly Guirgis

Directed by Bill English

January 29, 2013 – March 16, 2013

Strap yourself in. This high-octane, verbal cage match about love, fidelity, and misplaced haberdashery comes straight from the playwright of Jesus Hopped the ‘A’ Train, Den of Thieves, and Our Lady of 121st Street. Jackie and Veronica have been in love since the eighth grade. Nothing can come between them. Except a hat.

Reasons To Be Pretty

Written by Neil Labute

Directed by Susi Damilano

March 26, 2013 – May 11, 2013

Obsessed. You. Me. America. This bristling comedy confronts our collective obsession with physical beauty. See what happens when Greg, a working-class guy in a long-term relationship, inadvertently remarks to a friend that, compared to a pretty coworker, his girlfriend is “regular.”

Abigail’s Party

By Mike Leigh

Directed by Amy Glazer

May 21, 2013 – July 6, 2013

Momma told me not to come. This biting, hilarious, disco infused satire of British suburbia in the ’70s is a party only Mike Leigh could conceive. Stolen straight from real life, these friends test the strength of the ties that bind.

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.
