What's on When

What's happening in San Francisco

San Francisco Favorite

Promises, Promises

In the heady world of business in the early 1960's, the ambitious Chuck Baxter is trying to get ahead at his company by any means, even if that means letting his apartment be used for the extra-marital 'dalliances' of his seniors. But Chuck is an old romantic at heart, trying to win the beautiful waitress Fran, who's patchy flirtations with unsuitable men are getting to her. Don't miss this darkly comic tale, where sexual politics are just as important as office politics! Read more Buy Tickets.
