Comedy on the Square is the brainchild of vaudeville performer Fred Anderson. After a trip to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2000, he was inspired by the festival's DIY energy to create an ongoing performance series in San Francisco. In March 2003, he started producing variety arts, comedy, improv, and magic at various venues. Productions that started at Comedy on the Square have gone on to tour internationally, including the premiere of Paul Nathan's "Devil in the Deck" and "Frisco Fred's Comedy Hour."
Located in downtown San Francisco, The Dinner Detective Interactive Murder Mystery Show is the United States's largest interactive murder mystery comedy dinner show. Solve a hilarious murder case while you feast on a fantastic four-course plated dinner. But beware! The killer is hiding somewhere in the room, and you may find yourself a prime suspect.
This comedy picks up immediately after the events of the Ibsen classic. Hedda finds herself in fictional character purgatory with child-murdering Medea and Mammy (from Gone With the Wind). They set off to find The Furnace, the place from which all fictional characters are born, because Hedda is determined to break her cycle of dramatic suicide. Along the way, they meet all kinds of fictional stereotypes and learn that with change comes sacrifice.
In a bustling London train station, free-spirited American Georgie unexpectedly kisses mid-70s British butcher Alex and sets his world reeling. When she turns up in his shop a few days later, he is suspicious. Is she really attracted to him, or is there a longer con on the cards? As Alex is drawn into Georgie's anarchic world, his conventional life becomes chaotic, uncertain, and undeniably richer. In this play, Tony Award-winning playwright Simon Stephens (The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time) crafts a comedy that rethinks the polar magnetism of opposites attracting, as well as the conventions of modern-day playwriting. With its perfect collision of strangers and strangeness, Heisenberg was a hit on Broadway from one of contemporary theater's most original voices.
On a weeklong silent retreat in the woods, six wildly disparate souls looking for answers find that staying quiet doesn't necessarily bring inner peace. The acclaimed new comedy from Drama Desk Award-winning playwright Bess Wohl, Small Mouth Sounds is a wickedly sharp look at reflection and self-discovery. Under the eye of an unseen guru, these six have gathered to get away from it all. But as they listen to their leader's ruminations (and try to hook up while struggling to meditate without snacks), they learn that silence can indeed be golden. It can also be funny, frustrating, erotic, comforting, and profoundly passive-aggressive.
A hit off-Broadway and at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival, Vietgone is a modern twist on the classic story of boy meets girl. In this irreverent new comedy, three young Vietnamese immigrants leave a war-torn country for an eye-opening journey across the bewildering and foreign landscape of 1970s America. A vibrant mash-up of pop culture references, audacious dialogue, and an action-packed road trip that instantaneously moves from hilarity to heart-wrenching drama, Vietgone played to sold-out houses at 2016's Oregon Shakespeare Festival and New York's Manhattan Theatre Club. This sexy, sassy, freewheeling ride, with hip-hop and Motown rhythms, rolls into A.C.T.'s Strand Theater in an all-new production.
