SHN (formerly Shorenstein Hays Nederlander Theatres) is a theatrical production company in San Francisco. Under the leadership of commercial Broadway producers Carole Shorenstein Hays and Robert Nederlander, SHN has evolved from its inception in 1977 as a promoter of short engagements of national tours in one theatre to become the pre-eminent theatrical entertainment company in San Francisco presenting a year-round season of plays and musicals. SHN also owns and operates three historic theatres in San Francisco: the Curran, Orpheum and Golden Gate Theatres. SHN also consults on the Broadway series at the AT&T Performing Arts Center in Dallas.

For over 30 years, SHN has presented a Broadway series including musicals and plays featuring world premieres, pre-Broadway engagements, limited West Coast-only runs of productions starring the original Broadway casts and national tours.
