On the bustling streets of 1970s San Francisco, neon lights pierce through the fog-drenched skies, disco music explodes from crowded nightclubs, and a wide-eyed Midwestern girl finds a new home—and creates a new kind of family—with the characters at 28 Barbary Lane.

Armistead Maupin’s Tales of the City unleashes an exuberant celebration of the irrepressible spirit that continues to define our City by the Bay.
