The weather was pleasant. I wore sportcoat (overdressed!).
lots to choose from near the theater
Premium Orchestra seats are definitely worthwhile for great viewing and more leg room.
Park at Sutter Stockton garage and eat at Cafe de la Presse next to the garage, which has great ambiance and an excellent French menu...
If you're tall and need more leg room be sure to mention that when you buy your tickets. I was told (after the fact) that I could have been seated where there was more leg room if I had asked.
Great reasonable Thai restaurant across the street fro the theatre
We parked at the Marriott which is highly recommended and very close by.
The weather was dry , cooler. I wore light coat over outfit.
Colibri, directly across the street from the theater, is great for dinner before the show. Tasty tapas to share.
ACT's theater is grand but you would think they would up date the seat size and leg room. Buy standing tickets if your over six feet tall..
The actual theater (ACT) is at the corner of Geary and Mason. We used GPS from our phones and it kept taking us to the corporate offices.
Full bar downstairs at ACT.
Then walk to Macy's and go across the street to the events on the area there.
I took a cab from my hotel to the venue. The cab drive said to go in front of the nearest hotel and have the bell man whistle for a cab.
The weather was Cool at night. I wore A formal outfit and heels. I like to dress up sometimes. This was a good occasion to put on my finest outfit. .
A block towards union square is leftys hof brau. Great place to eat after the show.
Mezzanine seating is less steep than Balcony. I sat in balcony once before and woke up the next day with neck pain - definitely not for me.
Dinner at Puccini And Pinetti always a good choice.
The balcony seats are REALLY high up.
Jackson Filmore is a local trattoria, famous for their "Chicken G.O.V.", that stands for Chicken with Garlic, Olive Oil and Balsamic Vinegar. Once tasted, NEVER forgotten, one of the great Italian dishes in SF! Worth the wait and is a place we never fail to dine at when we're in town.
