American Conservatory Theater Reviews & Ratings
ACT is a Bay area mainstay. The plays produced here are some of the most interesting theatre you will find in the Bay area. Rarely will you ever see a big Broadway production or revival here. Instead, the season will be about interesting plays that have excellent qualities. Either great drama, funny comedy, or witty satire. While the house is big enough to support a major production, it's small enough to make every seat a great one. The service is good, too. They are smart enough to let you pre-order drinks at intermission. When the lights go up, you will find your drink waiting for you on a table. Very smart! Ticket prices are reasonable, and if various ticket plans are available.
amazing theatre with a vast range of shows. I've personally seen about 3 or 4 shows here and they are always excellent. All the seating in the place is good. They also serve some snacks
The theater is a lovely place to see high-quality acting and directing. Historical and ornate. The balcony seats are rather crammed, and in the front rows there is sometimes lighting equipment blocking one's view. The acoustics in the balcony can also be a bit challenging. That being said, as a subscriber, the staff is always lovely to me when I call, go to the box office, or see a show. Twice I have had my seats upgraded out of the blue... That made a huge difference to our enjoyment!
ACT offers a wide range of continually changing productions of both new and revivals. Always well produced with great casting. The theater itself is lovely to see as well. Being an older theater the seats are a bit snug. The good news is that there's always something worth seeing.
The theater was great but the person at the ticket office said that the doors opened at 7 and the play started at 7:30. But The play started at 7. Why would he do that? We were late. We'd payed extra for better seats but missed the beginning and had to see the first part of the play from the back and were treated like it was our fault.
