Plenty of fun restaurants on Castro street. Park you car, walk and find whatever you like, or, you can have a light meal, coffee, dessert at the venue.

I wore slacks and short sleeve shirt, wife was in pant suit. Longest day of the year, so it was warm and enjoyable to have coffee outdoors before the show..

It was cute and cheesy and Austin, the lead, is a hunk! We loved the sing and dance along at the end with the cast.

Description

Written by Dean Pitchard and Walter Bobbie

The first incarnation of Footloose was the 1984 film that tells the story of Ren McCormack, a teenager who was raised in Chicago. Ren moves to a small town where the local government has banned dancing and rock music. Ren and his classmates want to have a senior prom with music and dancing. First, though, they must figure out a way to get around the law and the Reverend Shaw Moore, who blames rock music’s influence for the death of his first child.

The film received two Academy Award nominations for Best Music/Original Song — “Footloose” and “Let’s Hear It for the Boy.”

The stage adaptation opened on Broadway in 1998 and receive four Tony Award nominations for Best Book of a Musical, Best Original Musical Score, Best Actress/Musical, and Best Choreography.
