Now Playing Onstage in San Francisco - Week of 6/08/2014 THE ORPHAN OF ZHAO
American Conservatory Theater
6/4-6/29/2014
The season expands to global dimensions with The Orphan of Zhao, James Fenton's beautiful reinvention of a classic Chinese legend that has its roots back in the fourth century BCE.

In the aftermath of a violent coup, an epic story of self-sacrifice and revenge plays out as a young orphan discovers the shattering truth behind his origins.

Now Playing Onstage in San Francisco - Week of 6/08/2014 GREASE
6th Street Playhouse, GK Hardt Theatre
6/14-7/7/2014
Here is Rydell High's senior class of 1959: duck-tailed, hot rodding "Burger Palace Boys" and their gum-snapping, hip-shaking "Pink Ladies" in bobby sox and pedal pushers, evoking the look and sound of the 1950s in this rollicking musical. Head "greaser" Danny Zuko and new (good) girl Sandy Dumbrowski try to relive the high romance of their "Summer Nights" as the rest of the gang sings and dances its way through such songs as "Grease Lightnin", "It's Raining on Prom Night", and "Alone at the Drive-In Movie" recalling the music of Buddy Holly, Little Richard, and Elvis Presley that became the soundtrack of a generation.
