Backstage with Matthew - November 14

One of the things I love about playing in repertory (changing productions night to night) is that we are constantly creating different worlds onstage.

Hayes Valley has both iconic classics and trendy new hot spots. Give yourself plenty of time to get here and book a table in advance.

Step 3:

Pre-order food and drinks for intermission.
