It’s right in front of the Civic Center BArt. Much easier than driving and having to pay for parking.

One block away is Sam's American Cafe, the food is excellent and the service is quick. Get there early!

Went to the Sunday evening show. Drove and parked at a metered space on Ninth St. across from a fitness center which didn’t cost a penny since it was Sunday. Walked one and one half blocks to and from the Orpheum. The Orpheum seating was somewhat comfortable, but tight squeeze. Difficult to see left area of the stage due to the seating. Most dressed casual. Able to see the show without a tall person sitting in front of me, blocking my view in front of me. Glad for an intermission. Great musical depicting history.

intermission toilet break is frantic; minimize your pre show fluid intake.

Take BART and get off at Civic Center. Follow the signs to Market and Hyde. Go up the stairs and you are there.

Sam's Cafe across the street is perfect location to grab a bite before the matinee. Variety off food. But it's small so get their early and plan for a short wait.

Beware of the ridiculous bar prices at the Orpheum theatre... I spent $30.00 on a rum & coke, a pack of cheezits, and a pack of M &M's!

Street parking can be tricky, and the area is unfortunately rather run down. If you are going to the evening performance, I would park at the Civic Center.

Listen to the soundtrack before you see the show. Sometimes it moves very fast and really helps follow the story.

BART lets you out right in front of the theatre door - great option!

We parked in the 5th & Mission lot, grabbed dinner in SF Centre and walked to the Orpheum - about .5 mile. We also walked back to our car. Worked great!
