Many thanks to everyone who made 2010 a huge success for the San Francisco Theater Pub!
This has been a tremendous first year for us. We completed 11 projects over the course of 12 months and worked with 100+ actors, directors, artists, writers and musicians! We received media coverage in Theater Bay Area Magazine, The Guardian, Words On Theater/KUSF and on numerous blogs and events listings! Our crowds ranged from full to capacity to bursting and whether it was original work, classic Greek tragedy or modern drama we found our audience to be supportive and ready to let us play and push our own boundaries!
Rest assured, San Francisco Theater Pub will be back in 2011. Here is a taste of our upcoming season:
