Since 1967 the nationally renowned American Conservatory Theater has been a leader in the San Francisco performing arts scene. At their historic home, the Geary Theater, whose stage has been graced by the likes of Clark Gable and Marlene Dietrich, the A.C.T. presents both classic and boundary-pushing plays under a dramatic elliptical big-top. Their new theater, The Strand, a renovated theater-turned-cinema-turned-porn-house opened in 2015, hosts smaller cabaret and theater productions in an intimate, crimson-walled 283-seat space. Young stage-actors from the A.C.T.’s Conservatory program can also regularly be seen in performances at The Strand.
