Founded by Stuart Bousel, Victor Carrion, Bennett Fisher and Brian Markley in the fall of 2009, the SF Theater Pub operates out of Cafe Royale (800 Post Street, San Francisco at Leavenworth) and plays on traditional theater “dark nights” like Mondays and Tuesdays. The first San Francisco Theater Pub event was a reading of Euripides’ satyr play Cyclops on January 18, 2010. Since then, the San Francisco Theater Pub has continued to showcase a wide variety of readings and performances by established and emerging writers, all staged in the bar space. We are grateful for the enthusiastic response of the San Francisco community, reflected by the crowds drawn to each event, and strive to serve as an artistic nexus that is engaging, inclusive, and welcoming.
Mission Statement: “The San Francisco Theater Pub produces re-imagined classics and scripted orginal works in a casual bar environment, emphasizing collaboration and connection between new and established theater artists and audiences.”
