Absolutely San Francisco

Written by celebrated musical composer and actress Anne Doherty, Absolutely San Francisco is a celebration of the city by the bay. Seen through the once bright eyes overcome with the promise of freedom and acceptance, Doherty’s musical takes a somewhat tragic turn that is made humorous as the author learns to accept what appear to be curses as gifts. Doherty herself is no stranger to drama as she was recognized at a young age as shining ingenue only to see her future taken from her by crippling rheumatoid arthritis which prevented her from performing. Over the years, she has gained wisdom through her life’s journey that is presented in song.The musical is presented from the point of view of ‘Sunshine the homeless lady’ giving a guided tour by cable car while photographs of the area from the 60’s play in the background. Absolutely San Francisco is a fantastic musical that is both heartwarming and whimsical while also offering an intimate look at San Francisco seen through the eyes of a gifted artist. Held over for additional showings, Absolutely San Francisco is playing at The Phoenix Theatre Annex. Please visit the official website for more information:http://www.absolutelysanfrancisco.com/
