Even my score is stretching it on this show...the older singers simply did not have strong enough voices to deliver the message on this show. The quips were not as funny and the choreography lacked enough engaging variety to be exciting.

One woman can really sing! Some of the songs were funny. The Costco song was the best. Cute overall.

A must see. I can understand why its been playing for the last 3 years. Its slightly dated in this economic enviornment but a great way to get your mind off it.

Quotes & Highlights

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
