Traditional theater is great, but it’s lacking in a variety of ways. Plays are expensive, and they often run really long. The audience is frequently populated with the well-to-do and the snobby, and if you get wasted, they’ll kick you out. Fortunately, thanks to FunCheapSF, I’ve learned of a solution: San Francisco Theater Pub. Tonight is its final show of the season, and it’s FREE!
The Theater Pub operates out of Cafe Royale, and it only hosts readings and performances that can be finished in the span of a beer or two. So the classics, such as Shakespeare’s Henry plays, must be re-imagined, as with tonight’s The Boar’s Head. Enter the world of the Boar’s Head Tavern in Eastcheap, where a young prince struggles to come to terms with the responsibilities of being king. Arrive early to make sure you get a seat!
