Take in two of Charles Busch's satires with this outrageous double bill. Vampire Lesbians of Sodom follows a pair of bloodsuckers who have a rivalry dating back 2,000 years. Their immortal catfight rages through time with a dramatic flair-up during Hollywood's silent movie era when the two vampires become competing film stars. Set in London's swinging mod scene of the '60s, Sleeping Beauty, or Coma is a groovy adaptation of the fairy tale. High fashion, a wacky fairy godmother and bad LSD lead to a 20-year coma only a prince can break. Learn More

The bus was a few minutes late - and there was no greeter or sign at the stop - so it was a little disconcerting. The 3-D programs and wallpaper were really cool. 'Hope you like incense! Being a local, I was checking this out as a potential thing to do with visitors - decided it depended greatly on the visitor! Lots of us 50+-ers sang along most of the way. Unusual, kinda fun, but not particularly enlightening? Volume of audio varied greatly - which seemed odd for Antennae... Some creeps kept lifting the curtains to peer out, which ruined the "theatre" effect for the rest of us - so don't do that!!

Sausalito’s Antenna Theater, in partnership with Teacher Bus, has literally hit the streets with a traveling show aboard a renovated 20th-century bus that evokes the era and politics of the Summer of Love. The Magic Bus is a veeeery trippppppy thick, twisted multi-media mix of oral histories, rock and roll, live action, 3-D and video projections while the bus rumbles through North Beach, the Haight and Golden Gate Park.
