EXIT Theatre has been operating since 1983, when Artistic Director, Christina Augello directed The Loves and Lives of the Gibbs Sisters in the lobby of a Tenderloin residential hotel. Since then, we’ve expanded into five intimate venues ranging in size from 25 to 80 seats. In addition to providing a home for emerging and independent theatre artists and companies, the EXIT annually produces a full season of performances with resident artists and designers. Our mission is to help develop theatre artists by providing opportunities to create, experiment, and grow by commissioning new works, providing production support and low-cost venue rental, and producing performance festivals for local and touring artists, including the San Francisco Fringe Festival – the oldest grassroots theatre festival in the Bay Area, and the second oldest Fringe in the U.S.

We operate five storefront theaters, with a total of 300 seats, in the Tenderloin district of downtown San Francisco. Our theaters range in size from 25 seats to 80 seats and annually host 100 independent theater companies.

EXIT Theatre was founded on Eddy Street in San Francisco’s Tenderloin neighborhood in 1983 when a group of method actors and retired vaudevillians came together under artistic director Christina Augello to perform a new play in the lobby of a residential hotel and passed the hat for funding. The local alternative press has named EXIT Theatre “Best Local Venue”, “Best (3,000 miles) Off-Broadway Theater”, “Best Off-Beat Theatre” and the artistic director has been named “Best Producer” and “Working Woman of the Year.”
