The show was absolutely fabulous....As an avid shopper, it totally resonated with all of my good and bad shopping adventures.

It is a small, intimate theater (less than 100 seats). The show was very amusing, definitely worth the cost of the discount tickets.

A great show to take your out-of-town guests to. And it's only 70 minutes long so you can still make dinner and cocktails afterwards!

Winner of the Bay Area Theater Critics Circle Award
“A cartful of laughter!” —San Francisco Chronicle
“Infectious, irreverent humor! A clever collection of tunes – songs that bring to mind Jerry Seinfeld’s sharp observations on mundane modern life.”_ -SF Weekly_
“Shopping for frothy fun? Here’s a musical for you!  Bobrow has picked an excellent quartet to deliver the message.  They handle Bobrow’s slyly funny lyrics well and exude personalities that are immediately likeable.” _-Contra Costa Times_
“Bobrow utilizes words in a truly amazing way, combining internal and external concepts about reality in a way that amuses, cajoles, and yes, often astounds.  Shopping! The Musical is GREAT!” —San Francisco Bay Times
“Performed by four very talented singers… _Shopping! The Musical _reminds me of those wonderful little revues that used to occur down in the Village in New York or the great Billy Barnes shows in Los Angeles.” —Talkin’ Broadway


_Shopping! The Musical _is a very funny musical revue of original songs and sketches about everybody’s second-favorite (in some cases, favorite) activity.  Award-winning composer/lyricist Morris Bobrow skewers all aspects of shopping – the stores, the sales people, the customers, the products, the frustrations, the differences in how men and women shop, and other shopping adventures and mis-adventures.

The writer, Morris Bobrow, is the winner of 3 San Francisco Bay Area Theater Critics Circle Awards for outstanding music and lyrics, the Hollywood DramaLogue Critic’s Award for best music and lyrics and New York’s Backstage Bistro Award for outstanding cabaret revue.
