Theatrical magic is created nightly and literally around the corner from Hotel Nikko. The Theater District is rich in historic and landmark venues, such as the Curran Theater and the Orpheum Theater, where you'll have an opportunity to be in the audience for world premieres, dramas, comedies, and musicals performed by a stellar cast of actors and actresses, some of whom you may recognize from their television and film work.
Every season, national touring companies of hit Broadway shows arrive and never disappoint. For a completely different theater experience, venture to the nearby historic Fillmore for a rock concert.
There is no shortage of plays, musicals, and theatrical events taking place on an annual basis in San Francisco. At any given time, you can catch a hit Broadway show, everything from "Beautiful: The Carole King Musical" to "Hamilton." Family shows abound as well, such as "Disney's Beauty and The Beast" and "The Lion King." In December, holiday fare like "A Christmas Carol" reigns supreme.
There are theaters large and small in the City by the Bay. The big houses include the Curran Theater, Golden Gate Theater, Marines Memorial Theater, and Orpheum Theater. You can also see world-renowned American Conservatory Theater productions at the Geary Theater. Smaller venues range from the Exit Theater and New Musical Theater to San Francisco Playhouse.
