This theater is only a few blocks from BART. Park at your local BART station, go to Powell St. Station, and avoid the hassles of traffic and parking.

Splendid acting. But we both found it impossible to care about most of the characters. Johnny deals drugs to kids and befouls the very corner of England he supposedly loves. He lies. He cheats. Who cares?

Three hours with 3 intermissions. I was not expecting that. The set is really cool but the play was super boring.

I loved this play. Brian Dykstra was excellent in the role of Rooster, and the supporting actors as his band of misfits and outcasts were excellent as well. I say go see it!

Quotes & Highlights

Jerusalem — which deftly encompasses comedy and violence, the sacred and the profane, the contemporary and the mythic - casts a magical spell." -SF Examiner
“San Francisco Playhouse may not exactly be building Jerusalem, but they’ve done something far more pragmatic: shown that three-hour plays (complete with two intermissions) can still keep an audience rapt and waiting for more … this heroic production will linger long in the hearts of the audience.” —Stark Insider


Jerusalem is recommended for ages 16+. The production has a run time of 3 hours and contains strobe lights, theatrical haze, and herbal stage cigarettes.
