Description

Storefront Church *

By John Patrick Shanley * *

November 26th to January 11th * *

*God vs. Gelt. Is it a moral failing to collect the rent? Find out when a politically savvy Bronx borough politician faces a Pentecostal minister who’s short on faith. Will the mortgage get paid? If so, at what cost?

Jerusalem *

Written by Jez Butterworth* * **

January 21st to March 8th *

Everyone wants Johnny. His son wants to go to the county fair. His mates want his stash and his booze. County officials want him evicted. Whatever happened to the simple life in the country? Come find out in this hit Tony and Olivier winning play!

Bauer *

Written by Lauren Gunderson* * **

March 18th to April 19th *

Why did he stop? Imprisoned by the Nazis, he sketched on scraps. His fiery love affair with Hilla Rebay (Guggenheim curator) lasted a lifetime. The Guggenheim was built to house his work. Why did the genius that survived all that suddenly stop painting? This is a San Francisco Playhouse commissioned work.    _

_ Seminar *

By Theresa Rebeck** * *

April 29th to June 14th **

  • Five hundred dollars a week for all the abuse you can take. And maybe sex. That’s what four aspiring novelists pay for a ten-week private writing class with the legendary Leonard. It’s a smorgasbord of vicious, and very funny, wordplay, as innocence collides with experience in this biting Broadway comedy about power, sex, and art.  _

_ Into the Woods *

By James Lapine (book) and Stephen Sondheim (music and lyrics)* * **

June 24th to September 6th *

What happens after Happily Ever After? In Sondheim and Lapine’s beloved musical retelling of the Grimm classics, a parade of familiar folktale figures find their way “Into the Woods” and try to get home before dark.

   

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.
