I agree with JanHaas and Leanna about the Sacramento Community Center. The first showing of JB, we were in the upper balcony and the singing was a bit off; I was very disappointed. So, of course, I had to go again and had a seat in the third row. What a difference and I was not disappointed at all. I think the Curran is a perfect size.

I liked the August Wilson a lot -- I believe it's actually smaller than the Curran. I wish I'd spent more time in there. The lobby reminds me of a Mexican restaurant, though. ;)
I remember when I took one of the backstage tour when the Sherry Cast was collecting for Easter Bonnet. Erich was mentioning some facts about the Curran and he menitioned that it was the smallest house the tour was going to play in.
Aww they finally updated the map that shows up on the official site. It was a bit of a downer to no longer see a marker on San Francisco. And by next week there won't be any more markers on the West coast.
My guided tours by invitation at the Curran and August Wilson with principal cast members were excellent, but the only difference was that the seating area was bigger at the August Wilson and backstage area was smaller at the Curran.
NY has two trap doors and SF has only the horizontal one up front. (December, 1963 scene in NY has them go downstairs into the midstage trapdoor)
NY cast members have to go upstairs to dress and SF cast members go downstairs.
NY catwalk is bigger and SF has a smaller one.
