Enjoyable night out for elaborate costumes, singing, and political satire. The costumes are the best! Completely over the top! Sing along with some of the best known songs. A San Francisco classic

Show is very nice but the staff at the venue are horrible and rude, they should learn from the actors. 5 stars for the show and actors. 0 stars for the venue and staff.

Yes, there are cheaper seats. We sat downstairs, about 20 feet from the stage, close enough! It's a small venue. In the front section, where the seats are like a cocktail lounge, with small, tables.
