Eat sushi at Akiko's on Mason - best sushi around, get a sumo roll... Then the theatre is 1 minute away on foot!

Theater is tiny and you wonder how all those actors will fit on stage but they do. Set design is fabulous. I cannot recommend this show too highly.

Sutter/Stockton garage and Union Sq garages are both 1 block away. Stockton is cheaper. Many restaurants within one or two blocks.

The "Noises Off" actors shout a lot, making the words impossible to understand. I took my hearing aids out in order to muffle the volume. Bring ear protection if you are sensitive to loud noises.

Beware: When turning right after walking down the entrance hall there is a small ramp-style step in the floor, leading to a slightly higher floor level. This adjustment is not signed or lit with glowing strips. I tripped on this unexpected rise, and a second member of my party tripped and fell down. A lawsuit waiting to happen! The stairs leading down to the bar are dim as well and need glowing strips to guide the theatergoers.

Signage is not clear: Wait downstairs at the bar until the box office opens upstairs.

Downstairs theatre gets hot and stuffy, so bring some water or purchase a beverage to drink inside the theatre.

As per the theater's recommendation, park in the Sutter/Stockton garage -- really cheap. We paid $2 for the 4 hours we were there.

Best to take public transit or walk. Be prepared for warm house as stage lights keep the audience warm.

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.
