San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
Come one, come all, it’s Trainwreck Cabaret, San Francisco’s most unusual variety show. From the stage of the Dark Room Theater in the Mission District, Trainwreck captures the old-world charm of vaudeville with a dark, new-world twist. It’s weird and wild, sexy and sublime, hairy and hilarious, a showcase for the independent side of our City’s creative underground. Now in our second year, Trainwreck’s growing troupe of talented performers includes comedians, sword swallowers, puppeteers, musicians, singers, burlesque dancers and more.
Why Trainwreck? It sometimes is! And it’s always entertaining. We ask our performers to go out on a limb and grasp the unusual fruit, take a chance, and create something wonderful. Spend an unforgettable evening with us and witness the oddities, laugh at the geeks, swoon for the dancers and swing with the singers. There is truly nothing like it!
When & Where

For your entertainment, we’ve captured the best local talent from many different genres and put them together for a show you’ll never forget.
The Dark Room Theater FAQ

Nope! The Dark Room Theater is an all ages venue that could be shut down if the wrong people happened to see booze inside!
Aw... But Really?
Yes... Really and for realsies.
Where Are The Restrooms?

So, Can I Use Them During The Show?
During the majority of performances at The Dark Room Theater we ask that unless it is an emergency you use the restroom before the show begins or after it has ended. Shows almost never run longer than one hour.
The Show I REALLY Wanted To See Sold Out Online! Help What Do I Do?
Shows at The Dark Room Theater have limited seating with a slightly restricted view available at the door, once doors open. Doors tend to open 30 minutes before the show's starting time. No tickets will be sold at the door before the doors open.
What If I Call/Email/Knock On The Door/Offer A Vial Of Blood AND/OR Unborn Child?
Still the same deal as above... Please don't do the last one.
I Keep Calling The Night Of A Show Because I Have Questions, Why Won't Anyone Pick Up?
Due to how frantic things can get as we gear up for our shows we turn the ringers off generally around an hour before a night of shows begins. Also, we don't like it when shows get interrupted by phones ringing. This means that if we have shows running until 12am, the phones are off until then. You can always send in an email, which has a far better chance of being noticed.
