We hope you’re planning on experiencing Luis Alfaro’s Alleluia, The Road at Intersection for the Arts, co-produced by Cal Shakes, Campo Santo, and Intersection. Come ready to take in a new and exciting production in an intimate, immersive environment, with visual arts surrounding you and players performing right next to you.

Below is a list of Frequently Asked Questions, devised to enhance your visit to Alelluia.

Where do the performances take place? Performances of Alleluia, The Road take place at Intersection for the Arts, not at Cal Shakes’ Bruns Amphitheater.

Where is Intersection for the Arts located? Intersection is located inside the San Francisco Chronicle building at 925 Mission Street, Suite 109, between Fifth and Sixth Streets in downtown San Francisco. The ZIP code is 94103, should you be using a futuristic device to navigate your passage.

How do I get there by car? From the freeway, take the Fifth Street/Downtown exit; turn left onto Harrison; take the first right onto Sixth Street; then, make a right onto Mission.

Is there parking nearby? Some street parking is available in surrounding alleys, but by far the easiest option is the parking garage at Fifth and Mission, directly across from the Chronicle building.

How do I get there by public transportation? Intersection is conveniently located one-and-a-half blocks from the Powell Street BART station (use the BART Trip Planner to ensure a timely arrival!) and numerous MUNI lines, including the 14 Mission.

Exactly which door in the Chronicle building do I enter through, and how is it marked? Intersection is located at the 925 entrance of the Chronicle building, which is up Mission Street, heading toward Sixth Street, and is not to be confused with the 901 entrance that is closer to the Fifth Street corner.

How do I get into the event space? The door to 925 will be unlocked, and signage and/or staff will direct you to the gallery. The box office is located in the gallery, where you will collect your ticket and program before moving on to experience the first part of the Califas visual arts installation before being directed to the show from there.

Is there assigned seating? Nope, this venue features general admission seating.

I know I already bought tickets, but if I want to buy more when I get there, how much will they cost? $30.

How long is the show with intermission? The show is approximately two hours long, plus a 15-minute intermission.

What’s happening at intermission? Will there be anything I can spend my money on? At intermission we invite you to spend more time with the Califas visual arts installations in both the performance space and the gallery. And there will be both alcoholic and nonalcoholic beverages for sale.

Will the gallery be open during intermission? See above.

What if I have more questions? Feel free to contact the Cal Shakes Box Office at 510.548.9666 or between the hours of 10am–12pm or 1–5pm, Monday–Friday.

    I have purchased a ticket via email and paid for the ticket to be mailed out to my place in San Francisco. I still haven’t received my ticket. I have a picture of my reciept to prove that I bought it. Please advice me because the show date that I purchased for is today November 7th 2013 at 8pm.

    Hi, not sure if someone will see this question in time, but I figure I’ll give it a shot:

    if we want to go on the related (?) 5W’s illuminated sculpture walk before the play, do we meet up at the theater space at Suite 109 (at 925 Mission) or somewhere else in or near that building? Also, can someone confirm if the walk will last 2 hours? (Seems kind of long for a walking tour of 5 sculptures; am trying to figure if we’ll have time for dinner in between the walk and the play.)

    p.s. I also left a message on the Intersection’s voicemail, but their office isn’t typically open on Sundays, so I’m not sure they’ll get that.

      Did you make it to the sculpture tour? I’m sorry I only now just saw this, as you predicted.
