Considered as the top cultural and financial center of the northern part of the State of California, San Francisco is home to one of the largest city populations in the United States. Founded in 1776 by Spanish colonists, the city began to experience growth during the 1849 Gold Rush in California, which ultimately led it to become the largest city on the West Coast area during that time. In 1906, the city of San Francisco was nearly destroyed by a major earthquake but was fortunate enough to be rebuilt. After the Second World War, an influx of immigration and liberalization had eventually led to the gay rights movement and the Summer of Love which ultimately made San Francisco famous as the center for liberal thought and activism. Today, this city attracts many local and foreign tourists due to its many landmarks such as the Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz, as well as its rich abundance in culture.

The San Francisco Landmarks Preservation Advisory Board has declared the Orpheum Theatre in San Francisco a Locally Designed San Francisco Landmark.

The theatre was first made open to the public in 1922 as a Shubert House but later on played host to a series of Theater Guild Presentations. The San Francisco Opera was also known to perform their yearly “Spring Opera” at the Curran Theatre. In 1977, the ownership of the theatre had changed to James M. Nedelander and Carole Shorenstein Hays and hosted their “Best of Broadway” season in the Curran. Since then, many musicals and other performances were held at the Curran Theatre.
Opened to the public in 1922, the Golden Gate Theatre was initially a Vaudeville venue which later turned into a movie theatre. After a period of decline, the theatre was renovated during the 1970’s and eventually reopened to the public as a performing arts venue place. The Golden Gate Theatre is owned by a theatrical producing company called the SHN Theatres, the same owners of the Orpheum Theatre. Today, this performing arts theatre has played host to a variety of Broadway Hit Musicals such as Hairspray, Chicago and Mamma Mia.
