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
Beware: When turning right after walking down the entrance hall there is a small ramp-style step in the floor, leading to a slightly higher floor level. This adjustment is not signed or lit with glowing strips. I tripped on this unexpected rise, and a second member of my party tripped and fell down. A lawsuit waiting to happen! The stairs leading down to the bar are dim as well and need glowing strips to guide the theatergoers.Noises Off info • Aug 31 2014 star this tip starred
Quotes & Highlights
Will Franken is “a comedic genius in the making.” —S.F. Herald
What would comedy look like if it didn’t conform to the standard, “let me tell you about me and my weird life” formulas of traditional stand-up? What would it look like if it were cerebral, satirical and character-driven—if it belonged to that twilight realm where comedy meets performance art? What would comedy sound like if latte-swilling dotcomers and tattooed indie rockers could howl together at its sly jabs at high culture, low culture, drug culture, drag culture, white culture, black culture, Queer culture, multicultur(alism)… and Native American literature?
Had enough hypotheticals? We’ll get on with it … San Francisco comedian Will Franken is the answer (well, at least one answer) to mainstream observational stand-up comedy. Need proof?
