One of the most meteoric rises has been that of SF Playhouse… attracting more top-notch actors,
directors, and scripts every year.SF Chronicle
The company specializes in stellar productions of contemporary playsSF Examiner
SF Playhouse knows how to throw a party. I always love stepping into this company’s world. The directors, Bill English and Susi Damilano, have a way of making every person feel welcome.Arts Journal
SF Playhouse is a tornado with a vortex you are going to want to get sucked into. Just remember, you’re going to feel something when you see a show there. It might hurt. It might not. You’ll have to jump in to see. I tend to think that’s the plan.Adventures in Theater and Film
In true SF Playhouse fashion, this production pushes the limits, transforming the traditional tale to something far sexier, grittier and more realistic.Daily Cal
…some of the most consistently high-quality work around… The combination of SF Playhouse’s small Off Off Off Broadway setup and sophisticated Off Broadway sensibility sets it apart.New York Times
An organization known for its chutzpah. SF Playhouse stands out because Damilano and English know how to find the sweet spot between provocative and popular.Mercury News
Under his outstanding leadership, Bill English chalks up another successFor All Events
The little engine of San Francisco Playhouse always could, but now it has gone into the world of thespian gigantism.Examiner.com
One can never complain about the crackerjack production values of the SF Playhouse.For All Events
