Theater news out of San Francisco this week regarding branding of one of the city’s most prominent theater houses.

SHN has announced a name change. Going forward the company, known for bringing Broadway touring musicals to San Francisco, will be known as BroadwaySF.

Per the news release:

“The new name projects a clear and simple promise to live theater lovers around the Bay Area – BroadwaySF will continue to bring Broadway blockbusters and one-of-a-kind theatrical experiences to the Orpheum and Golden Gate Theatres in San Francisco.”

Robert Nederlander of the Nederlander theater legacy remains co-owner. Greg Holland, formerly of Clear Channel Enetertainment, is CEO.

The dramatic and bold new logo looks like this:
