New Show Megabytes! The Musical

By Charlotte Robinson, January 17, 2018
Megabytes! The Musical, written & directed by Morris Bobrow is a world premiere musical comedy revue that begins previews January 19th & 20th at the Shelton Theater in San Francisco. This is a limited 7-week engagement with opening night on January 26th & runs through March 3rd at 8P. The show takes a humorous look at how we navigate technology in our lives. It’s about the frustrations, anxieties, annoyance & occasional joys we encounter as we all struggle to cope with the quotidian challenges created by technology. The point of view of the show is that of the average person using tech devices, not that of a “techie”. The comedy arises from the situations, positive & negative the majority of us encounter in working with these so-called “user-friendly” technological tools. This revue format is a series of 20 plus observational songs & sketches, each depicting its own joy & frustration of living our lives in the modern technological age with varying results. Director Morris Bobrow stated, “You will relate to the comic situations of the songs & sketches if you ever had to create a password with complex rules, Googled yourself, frozen with anxiety before hitting Send, needed tech advice from a youngster, bounced among tech firms, yearned for more likes, or lusted for virality.” Megabytes! The Musical features Bay Area actors David Goodwin, Kim Larsen, Lisa McHenry & Deborah Russo. Ben Kein plays piano & serves as the musical director. The show runs Fridays & Saturdays January 19th through March 3rd at the Shelton Theater in San Francisco with tickets $30 for general admission & $25 for seniors & students.

I already identify with the show's premise......I feel better knowing that frustration and feeling of tech ineptness is shared by many and the show sounds like a lot of fun :)
