You have never experienced a train ride quite like this. From the creators of Dear San FranciscoPassengers combines contemporary dance, circus arts, singing, acrobatics, and theater into a story that explores a community of strangers with one thing in common: each person has somewhere to go.   

The Geary Theater will be your personal quarters as life happens along this track of sorts, twisting and turning through valleys and plains. You’ll experience tearful goodbyes, anticipatory reunions, and fateful encounters inside the cabin. These jaw-droppingly talented performers use feats such as aerial routines, juggling, tightrope walking, and more to explore the intricate connections between all of our lives. It’s a thrilling and poignant performance you must see to believe. 

“When first creating Passengers four years ago, it was in great hope and anticipation of one day, finally, bringing it back home to my native Bay Area. The pandemic put that dream temporarily on hold, but I’m thrilled that—a few long-awaited years later—my little train has finally made its way back to its home station in my beloved San Francisco. The themes at the heart of this show—of travel, of nostalgia for foreign lands and past eras, of celebrating a ‘ride’ that is unexpected and so often cut too short—have brought new layers of meaning and importance in our post-pandemic era. In many ways it feels we are premiering a whole new show!”
