  • SF Weekly's Best Of 2011 - Reader's Poll - Best Stage Actress. As the curtain rises on Harold Pinter's 1964 play The Homecoming, we find ourselves in a North London house full of men brimming with...
  • Do not miss Scapin at ACT. Directed by and starring Bill Irwin, it represents clown at the highest level.
  • The bar has the best drinks in town. Especially the vodka gimlet and the dirty martini. (not to mention the great plays.)
  • Its a nice theater. Feel as though the productions dont have the financing they once did. Production value from sets to the costumes it was a low budget affair.
  • Make sure you go downstairs to get hot drinks
  • Not a fan of a lot of the plays produced by ACT. Beautiful venue. Shows that tour there/are brought in by other companies are much better.
  • The balcony is fine, just stay away from the outside edges right at the railing...the lights hanging below the ledge get in the way of the stage.
  • You can order your intermission cocktail before the show starts so it's ready right at the break.
  • " The Suit"
  • Yep, you can bring drinks inside the theater
  • Good drinks before theater performance
  • Darling is pretty frigging sweet.
  • Last Tuesday of each run has a free wine tasting on the 3rd floor.
  • The orchestra section is small so seats toward the middle are best.
  • Front row balcony seats have severely obscured views by the railings. You'll have to peek at the actors through the gaps!
  • If you qualify for the student discount, utilize it.
  • If you're sitting in the first four rows in orchestra, be sure to use the bathroom before the show. Won't be able to return to your seat if you use the bathroom during the show.
  • If you'd like a nice drink and refreshment at intermission, be sure to order ahead of time. Not only will you get a nice table to sit at, you won't need to stay in line...
  • Don't miss Tales of the City! Great musical!
  • $10 tickets for the first 10 performances!
