With the book Lean In making a splash in 2013, the topic of women and success is just as fresh and current as it was in the 1980s, when Caryl Churchill wrote Top Girls in response to Margaret Thatcher's ambitious rise to power in the UK. Called "the best British play ever from a woman dramatist" by The Guardian, Top Girls follows Marlene, a ruthlessly ambitious career woman, who has seized every opportunity to make it to the top. In the play's famous opening scene, she celebrates her big promotion at a surreal dinner party whose guests are famous women from history and myth. After this celebratory moment, Top Girls changes course to show the cost of Marlene's ambitions. When a young relative shows up unannounced at her workplace, Marlene must examine what the next generations of women will gain (or lose) from the choices she made in her rush to the top. 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.
