About San Francisco Playhouse

San Francisco Playhouse is a nonprofit theatre in downtown San Francisco. The Bay Area’s most awarded theatre company (Bay Area Theatre Critics Circle, 2012-2022), the Playhouse stages plays and musicals every year, including world premieres, Broadway and Off-Broadway hits, and thought-provoking works from playwrights around the world.

The company has been hailed by the New York Times as “a company that stages some of the most consistently high-quality work around,” was praised by KQED as “one of the few theaters in the Bay Area that has a mission that actually shows up on stage,” and called “local theater at its best” by the San Francisco Chronicle. The company was awarded the American Theatre Wing National Theatre Company grant, making it eligible for the Regional Tony Award.

San Francisco theatre productions take place Tuesday through Sunday at the Playhouse’s Mainstage in the Union Square theatre district, in addition to other performances at Sandbox venues throughout the city. Click here for a full schedule of events.
