American Conservatory Theater

Theater in Downtown, Civic Center & SoMa

Breakthrough shows launch at this turn-of-the-century landmark, which has hosted ACT's productions of Tony Kushner's Angels in America and Robert Wilson's Black Rider, with William S Burroughs' libretto and music by Tom Waits. Major playwrights like Tom Stoppard, Dustin Lance Black and Eve Ensler premiere work here, while the ACT's newer Strand Theater stages more experimental works.
