Shopping! The Musical 2010 DATES
Shopping! The Musical is San Francisco's longest-running original show, now in its 5th smash-hit year at The Shelton Theater. This is a hilarious, fast-paced revue of original songs and sketches about shopping, skewering everything from the stores, the customers and the salespeople to the very different shopping habits and styles of men and women. It won the Bay Area Theater Critics Circle Award for best script of an original musical. One critic has cited the material as "worthy of Saturday Night Live."
The dynamite cast delivers with just the right mix of sarcasm and enthusiasm.
Audiences and critics alike are singing the praises of the show. Here are a few words from the critics:
"A CARTFUL OF LAUGHTER!" -San Francisco Chronicle
"INFECTIOUS, IRREVENT HUMOR! A clever collection of tunes - songs that bring to mind Jerry Seinfeld's sharp observations on mundane modern life".
"HILARIOUS! SIDE-SPLITTING! CLEVER AND SPARKLING!
Performed by four very talented singers who know how to put a song over. Shopping! The Musical reminds me of those wonderful little revues that used to occur down in the Village in New York or the great Billy Barnes shows in Los Angeles. Bobrow knows how to present the lost art of a musical revue. His songs remind me of musical satirist Tom Lehrer. EVERYONE WHO SEES THE REVUE WILL IDENTIFY WITH SOME ASPECT OF SHOPPING." -Talkin' Broadway
"Shopping for frothy fun? Here's a musical for you! Bobrow has picked an excellent cast to deliver the message. They handle Bobrow's slyly funny lyrics well and exude personalities that are immediately likeable. THE MORE YOU SHOP, THE MORE YOU WILL ENJOY SHOPPING!" -Contra Costa Times
"Shopping! The Musical is the perfect pastiche for the out-of-towner and resident after a long day Union Square. Bobrow utilizes words in a truly amazing way, combining internal and external concepts about reality in a way that amuses, cajoles, and yes, often astounds. SHOPPING! THE MUSICAL IS GREAT!" -San Francisco Bay Times
Of the show's writer, The San Francisco Chronicle has written, "There is no more polished master of the original musical revue than Bobrow." Hollywood Drama-Logue described Bobrow as "one of the wittiest and classiest songwriters around." For more information about Bobrow, visit www.Bobrowproductions.com.
