The Fairmont San Francisco is proud to serve as the official hotel sponsor of the American Conservatory Theater (A.C.T) world premiere musical production of Armistead Maupin’s Tales of the City, offering unprecedented opportunities for fans to create memorable tales of their own through special package options and exclusive access to show tickets.
Three decades ago, Armistead Maupin first captivated millions of readers with Tales of the City, his iconic San Francisco saga that began with a wide-eyed Midwestern girl moving to a new city and forming a new kind of family with the characters at 28 Barbary Lane. Beginning May 18, Tales of the City will come to life in the form of a musical adaptation from the Tony Award–winning creators of Avenue Q and the musical minds behind the glam-rock phenomenon Scissor Sisters.
The Fairmont San Francisco has partnered with A.C.T. to offer two exciting package choices for guests attending Armistead Maupin’s Tales of the City.
