The weather was cool since it was a night show.. I wore A black dress and matching boots, with a leather jacket..
Went with friends, we took muni from the Outer Richmond- got off at Powell and walked few blocks.
A Streetcar Named Desire
We found street parking. Super easy and quick!
Several great restaurants within walking distance. Check Yelp!
Stockton/Sutter St. garage. Cost us $5.50, for dinner and a show. A short walk to the theater.
Small theatre, on site purchased drinks are allowed inside.
The Book of Liz
Parkinf, after business hours, is easy and relatively cheap at Sutter/Stockton garage. From there is a 5 minutes walk to Shelton Theatre.

Easy walk up Powell St. from Powell Street BART station.
BART was the way to go. Lots of dining options from BART to the theatre
Drinks are available you can take inside
The weather was San Francisco nights. I wore Shirt, pants, jacket .
Try Parkwhiz.com for $10 Marriott Hotel on Post, We ate at Cesario's, get table near window.
Eat sushi at Akiko's on Mason - best sushi around, get a sumo roll... Then the theatre is 1 minute away on foot!
Foodies! The Musical
Theater is tiny and you wonder how all those actors will fit on stage but they do. Set design is fabulous. I cannot recommend this show too highly.
Sutter/Stockton garage and Union Sq garages are both 1 block away. Stockton is cheaper. Many restaurants within one or two blocks.
Dress to stay cool. Venue is small and heats up!!
There is a 10 min intermission, so hold the bathroom break until then.
The weather was cold out, but the small theater gets warm. . I wore layers. Jeans, nice shirt, light jacket..
The "Noises Off" actors shout a lot, making the words impossible to understand. I took my hearing aids out in order to muffle the volume. Bring ear protection if you are sensitive to loud noises.
Beware: When turning right after walking down the entrance hall there is a small ramp-style step in the floor, leading to a slightly higher floor level. This adjustment is not signed or lit with glowing strips. I tripped on this unexpected rise, and a second member of my party tripped and fell down. A lawsuit waiting to happen! The stairs leading down to the bar are dim as well and need glowing strips to guide the theatergoers.
