We had reservations for after the show and topped the evening off with a really fabulous meal at Jeanne D'Arc at the Cornell Hotel just around the corner on Bush St. I cannot recommend this restaurant too highly. Beautiful food and refined and friendly service. I will be returning to this hidden gem!

The play was excellent. The actors really got into their roles and when the glass
dropped for real it was a shock. The only negative was the stairs up to the theater.
The theater is not really accessible for someone who is handicapped.

Quotes & Highlights

“Directed here by Amy Glazer with great panache, The Couch features a stellar cast … Kaufman’s triumphant, feminist ending is both hilarious and deeply satisfying.” -San Francisco Examiner
“In director Amy Glazer’s skilled hands, it is a perfect jewel of a play._ The Couch _unfolds with clarity and humorous twists, authentic costuming, and tight performances by a talented ensemble.” —Marin Scope
“Maggie Mason as Jung’s mistress and protégé Antoinette Wolf, and Courtney Walsh playing his wife Emma, are the main roles and are both done with aplomb and believability.”

About the Ticket Supplier: 3Girls Theatre Company

3Girls Theatre Company is a non-profit theatre company that develops, produces and promotes new plays written by women playwrights. Only 12-18% of new plays produced by the American mainstream theatre establishment in any year are written by women — an incredible statistic made even more so by the fact that this low percentage is roughly the same today as it was a century ago. We at 3Girls Theatre aren’t interested in debating the politics of this problem. We’re just interested in solving it!

Since our founding in 2011, 3GT has worked to address this problem by creating theatre experiences that let the voices of women and girls be heard, loud and clear. Our annual programs include our New Works Festival, Salon Reading Series and full productions, as well as educational programs and outreach projects that invite script submissions and participation from our larger community. These programs develop new playwrights, empower young woman and girls, and nurture LBT playwrights.
