1,717 A.C.T.'s Geary Theater Tips
Tough parking options, ranging from $25-40. Bart is probably a better option.
Feedback from audience members' hearing aids (which are meant to be turned off when using the theatre's listening devices) was a problem. A distinct high-pitched squeal.
Let There Be Love
We went to Kombu for dinner (747 Market St. 4th floor). We had a GotDailyDeals coupon, and it was a wonderful experience- great cuisine, service and view.
take bart if you're coming from the east bay on a friday night. the venue is just off union square in sf.
You can bring drinks into the ACT theater, but not food. The drinks are pretty well priced too at $5 for a beer and $3 for a soda.
dinner at Bartlett Hall was a good call before the show. It is close and the food was good. The menu is small but you should be able to find something to eat. The place is loud but a lively environment.
Mr. Burns, a post-electric play
Parking is expensive at Mason/O'Farrell garage. Recommend looking for cheaper lots or take public transit.
The weather was cold cold cold. I wore Dark jeans boots and a black top for the day time show.
Or dine after the show. There are plenty of diners around. There is also beverages and snacks for purchase inside
If you park in the garage behind the theater on Mason you get a discount and pay only $13- a great deal for city parking!
There is a great Thai restaurant called Chaba across the street. It's convenient to eat and don't have to rush to where you need to go to see the show.
A Christmas Carol
Go beforehand to Morton's or Coolibris for their happy hour. Buy a drink at the show and bring it inside. End the night with a trip to the Redwood Room.
Parked at the Mason/O'Farell garage...show your ticket stub to the attendant and get a parking discount.
We had a great lunch at My China at Westfield Mall and walked to the theater. We traveled form Napa by Ferry from Vallejo and used public transportation from Ferry Building to the Mall.
Left car in San Bruno - took Bart. fast and easy & no parking hassle/expense.
The Ellis-OFarrell garage is close (walk through Macy's then down a block and a half to the theatre) and CHEAP ( only $1/hour after 6pm)
Full bar with snacks downstairs at the Curran. I got a quick and delicious bowl of pumpkin soup at Cafe Mason with only 30 minutes to curtain... Very satisfying and yummy. Menus was extensive and moderately priced and if the soup ( their "everyday" soup) was any indication, very good. I will go again!
