Won best theater company in the San Francisco Bay Area in 2008. They do really unique improvised theater productions, like improvised musicals and improvised Shakespeare shows, and have been a San Francisco staple since 2003.

Union Square
Originally home to rallies supporting the Union Army
in the Civil War, this grand square has become the
city's premier shopping and entertainment district
containing the largest number of upscale department
stores, chic boutiques, art galleries and theatres in
the city. It's a large open area where tourists and
locals gather, watch cable cars and crowds go by,
enjoy a snack, or plan their day of shopping and
