Photo Flash: ACT's TALES OF THE CITY Celebrates Opening Night!

American Conservatory Theater's (A.C.T.) highly anticipated production of Armistead Maupin's Tales of the City has been extended an additional two weeks through July 24 due to unprecedented demand. The world premiere musical amassed the largest advance sale in A.C.T.'s history prior to its first preview performance on May 18 and has continued to break sales records heading into this week's opening night gala. Check out photos from the event below!

Armistead Maupin's Tales of the City will now run through July 24, 2011, at the American Conservatory Theater (415 Geary Street, San Francisco). The added performances are July 12-24, 2011: 8 p.m. performances Tuesdays through Sundays (Sunday, July 17 performance is at 7 p.m.) and 2 p.m. matinees on July 13, 16, 23, 24;. For more information and to purchase tickets, please contact the A.C.T. Box Office at 415.749.2228 or visit the A.C.T. website at www.act-sf.org.

Three decades after Armistead Maupin mesmerized millions with his daily column in the city's newspapers, detailing the lives and (multiple) loves of Mary Ann, Mouse, Mona, Brian, and their beloved but mysterious landlady, Mrs. Madrigal, his iconic San Francisco saga comes home as a momentous new musical from the Tony Award-winning creators of Avenue Q (librettist Jeff Whitty and director Jason Moore) and the musical minds behind the glam-rock phenomenon Scissor Sisters (composers Jake Shears and John Garden). The capstone of the 2010-11 season, A.C.T.'s world premiere musical adaptation of Tales of the City unleashes an exuberant celebration of the irrepressible spirit that continues to define our City by the Bay. The general public is invited to join Tale Chasers, A.C.T.'s email fan club, to get access to exclusive looks into the development process, ticket information, and other special offers by visiting www.act-sf.org/TaleChasers.
