Live theater tends to be more thrilling than film, largely due to the heightened odds of seeing someone flub a line or deliver a stirring monologue while sitting in your lap. Vicariously live the free-wheeling thespian life with today’s Groupon: for $29, you get two tickets to Party of 2 – The Mating Musical at the Shelton Theater (up to a $58 value). The curtains go up every Friday at 8 p.m. through the end of the year, and seating is general admission at all shows.
Critically acclaimed by such reputable rags as the San Francisco Chronicle and nominated for a quartet of San Francisco Bay Area Theatre Critics Circle awards, Morris Bobrow's mirthful Party of 2 – The Mating Musical poignantly navigates universal issues of romance and intimacy. Penned by the scribe of Shopping! The Musical, San Francisco's longest-running show, and anchored by a pair of veteran board-treaders, the musical starts with two self-sufficient singles whose blooming courtship threatens their autonomous lifestyles and fondness for eating the entire box of twinkies alone. A collection of toe-tapping melodies glide through the air as audiences track the couple's first meeting through their anxious but earnest attempts at intimacy and domesticity.
