Awful. I've seen this over the years and have enjoyed previously. It is currently nothing more now then a far left liberals wet dream. Get a clue. Just because you are in the city of whackos, not everyone shares your views. You place idiots like Obama, Moo-Cheops, Pelosi, Hillary, and Bill on a pedestal, but made fun of Conservatives. Really,... More

I found myself having a great time at this show. It mixed parody with exceptionally good singing. You could tell the performers clearly had talent, while poking fun at many current events. I found the theater was very nice and the attendants took very good care of you.

This show is incredible! You must have an open mind and be on top of current events to really appreciate this production. I can't remember the last time I laughed that hard and left with a huge smile on my face. We sat upstairs and had a really good view of the stage. Although they recommend getting there at 645pm,...

Great show to see in San Francisco, it a lovely little theatre and the show is very entertaining bright and fun. We loved this show and would definitely recommend as part of a San Francisco experience. We went to the 630 pm show on a Saturday night and purchased great seats on the night of the show.

We didn't know what to expect with this show, but it was incredible. We loved it. We laughed for the entire show. The singing was great, the jokes were funny, and the costumes.... I would definitely go again. Little tip, sit upstairs, you get a better view of the stage.

A bit out of the way to find but well worth it. I was a bit worried we wouldn't get a lot of it being from the UK but there was only character I didn't know who it was. A brilliant hysterical experience. We went for the top price front balcony reserved seats which were well worth the bit extra.... More

I just saw the show for the second time. The first time was almost 40 years ago, when I laughed and laughed, and just loved it. 40 years later, the show is still fresh, up to date spoofing current events and pop stars, and still hysterically funny. The performers put amazing energy into it and the costumes are truly fantastic.... More
