The “girl power” movement may have gotten lost somewhere in British pop quintet the Spice Girls’ ample cleavage in the mid-90s, but fortunately for us, the righteous spirit -- and ample cleavage -- live on in the form of three fictitious, 18th century princesses known as Her Rebel Highness. If you’ve ever asked yourself why the stylings of Jane Austen and Madonna have yet to be combined in a musical revue, then you are obviously a San Franciscan. This soulful, spry performance mashes classical and contemporary songs, dancing, and theatrics with an underlying theme of empowerment, and about eight feet of powdered wig. In addition, the event promises to be pleasing not just to the ear, but to the taste buds as well. Audience members will receive the royal treatment with complimentary, hand-crafted hors d’oeuvres by Mrs. Dalloways Catering -- including Stilton and walnut tartlets and potted shrimp -- as well as “princess-inspired” desserts. Whatever your normal station in life, once you step inside the SOMA nightclub-cum-aristocratic palace ballroom, you’ll be regally transformed, and without the cumbersome frog-kissing that often accompanies such metamorphoses. It’s bound to be a riot, grrl.
Sundays, 5 p.m. Starts: June 24. Continues through Aug. 12, 2012
