Buriel Clay Theatre

The Buriel Clay Theatre is perhaps best know for its long-running productions of Viva Variety, a cabaret-like comic ensemble piece that reinvents itself each year. Like San Francisco itself, the Buriel Clay is a mix of the eclectic, the queer and the downright hilarious.

The Buriel Clay Memorial Theater located on the first floor of the African American Art & Culture Complex was named after Mr. Buriel Clay, a prominent African American Playwright and Poet from San Francisco. The 210 seat theater has hosted theatrical dramas, dance productions, musical concerts, film and video screenings, seminars and workshops.
