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 GrouponLive deal: for $29, you get two tickets to Shopping! The Musical at the Shelton Theater (up to a $58 value). The curtains go up every Saturday at 8 p.m.
The jocular Shopping! The Musical, one of San Francisco’s longest-running original shows, regales audiences with two dozen witty songs composed by the award-winning Morris Bobrow that are belted out by on-stage customers and merchants. Talented thespians, including David Goodwin, Kim Larsen, Sara Hauter, and Deborah Russo, lead a musical revue that winds through a variety of shops and stores and focuses on common shopping mishaps such as forgetting one's credit card, shopping for embarrassing products, and forgetting where you parked your Batmobile. The tales of purchase anxiety unfurl as actors and actresses tap and twirl through Lydia Wirth’s expert choreography to the dulcet piano tones of accompanist Angela Dwyer.
