Night & Day at the Nourse

Nourse-Auditorium_8 Built in 1927 for San Francisco’s Commerce High School, the auditorium , The Nourse Theater is a beautifully preserved venue for all sorts of performing arts.

lobby-tableAbout three years ago the City Arts and Lectures programs moved from the Herbst Theater to The Nourse’s larger capacity “house” and reopened it’s doors for the tens of thousands of new and returning patrons.  Other bookings at the Nourse feature Public Radio favorites like: A Prairie Home Companion, Wait Wait Don’t Tell Me, and This American Life.

For the past 3 years the fabulous SF Gay Men’s Chorus have performed twice a year, along with other multicultural programs like: Pop Up Magazine, Sketch Fest, Youth Speaks, The SF Civic Symphony, and believe it or not, the incredibly popular Korean hip hop group, The Bang Tang Boys . The California Institute of Integral Studies held their events at the Nourse until this year when the Herbst reopened after retrofitting.
