Morris Bobrow, the award-winning creator of Shopping! The Musical, the longest-running original show in San Francisco history, is serving up yet another tasty musical revue. This one's all about food, glorious food -- with a mix of songs and sketches about eating habits and hang-ups, trendy restaurants and food trucks, cooking quirks, menu mania and much, much more. Winner of multiple San Francisco Bay Area Theater Critics Circle Awards for outstanding music and lyrics, Bobrow also created the recent Party of 2 -- The Mating Musical. Learn More

Quotes & Highlights

The award-winning ten-person crew can freestyle on the fly like a rapper, free-associate like a psychologist, and riff on a topic like a bebop saxophonist. A perennial Bay Area favorite, Big City Improv’s comics have been incorporating audience participation into their live shtick since 2001… for a laugh-inducing riot that promises to be both unscripted and unlimited, as far as how funny it can be.” —East Bay Express
