Based on the principles of YES!, the aim of The Playhouse is to provide a creative home and inspiring environment where actors, directors, writers, designers and theatre lovers converge to create works that celebrate the human spirit.Plan to visit San Francisco Playhouse and other customer-reviewed, writer-recommended San Francisco attractions using our San Francisco attractions planner .
The word “family” is central to what this new theatre means to us. All the actors, directors, designers, and technicians we have worked with over the years and want to work with again, and all the playgoers who have supported our work over the years are members of this family that make our theatre possible.
We hope to create a warm and nurturing environment for the sharing of dreams, secrets, fears, hopes, grief, and joy because it’s safe to bring all of ourselves to this PLAYHOUSE. To discover we have more in common than we have apart, to replace judgment and disdain with understanding and compassion.
We invite you to join our family, to play with us, cry with us, laugh with us, reach with us, touch us and be touched by us.

Awesome old school theater to see a play. It's in an old hotel. Had to park a few blocks away but that's to be expected so close to Union Square. Felt very homey. Saw Mary Poppins there. The production and the set were awesome. Would like to see another production there.
Just saw "Yoga Play" at San Francisco Playhouse. It's brilliant and hilarious all at once! From a satire of corporate myopia (think Lululemon) to women in the workplace to cultural heritage to self actualization, this play gets us to laugh and laugh... and see life from another angle. If you are anywhere in the Bay Area, get tickets to see it by 4/20.
