Half-Price Tickets to Absolutely San Francisco


Haven’t you seen this lady selling “green buds” on Haight St.?

Always wanted to go to a musical, but could never really afford it? Don’t miss your chance to see a hilarious performance about life in San Francisco for half-price this weekend only! Back by popular demand after its three month run last year, Absolutely San Francisco re-opens March 11th in the new Alcove Theater in Union Square.

The one-woman musical comedy stars award-winning local favorite Darlene Popovic as “Sunshine the Homeless Lady.” Popovic plays a hippie living in SF searching for a bit of happiness and adventure. She sings an original score amongst five characters that could only be found within this 7×7 city, as she searches for lost love and the true San Franciscan experience.

Not Quite Opera Productions’ adaptation of the book and lyrics written by Anne Nygren Doherty turn stereotypes into a reality. Bring some Kleenex, as you might not know whether to laugh or cry throughout Absolutely San Francisco. Be prepared – audience participation is encouraged, but don’t worry, you don’t really have to give any money to the panhandlers…

Absolutely San Francisco
Thursday, Friday and Saturday Nights: 8pm, Sundays: 3pm
Tickets $32 – $50 (Half Price Opening Weekend)
The Alcove Theater
414 Mason Street, Fifth Floor [Union Square]

Heidi Smith - The Ultimate Scavenger

Originally from San Diego, Heidi migrated north to study journalism at SFSU and interned for the SF Bay Guardian writing music stuff. She later embarked on a study-abroad program in both Denmark and Holland, and basically never came home. For six long years, she froze her ass off in Oslo, Norway, pretending to be a viking princess, trying to figure out how to survive in the most expensive city in the world. The other two years were spent frolicking on the beach in Spain - sipping on sangria in between being tossed around Europe working as a stressed-out journalist. Heidi currently works at for a non-profit cultural exchange program, helping others experience life from a different perspective. She is thrilled to be back in SF, magnetizing the obscure, and scavenging the city for fun, free things to do.
