“Unique and Zany”

For those who have seen that other famous San Francisco cabaret with big hats, but who want more of the same, the S.F. Follies brings it. More lampooning, including lampooning of hippies. Thank god someone's finally come along to poke fun at hippies. But the Follies promise to go deeper, with additional lampooning of some impressively obscure Bay Area stuff including the Golden Gate Park windmills, Dennis Richmond, FasTrak, and Winterland. The press materials hype corny showgirls in sparkly top hats, but if writers John Bisceglie and Jason Tarshis can fit in any reference at all to Wendy Tokuda, Laughing Sal, and Critical Mass, they’ll earn their keep — maybe even an ovation.
Thursdays-Saturdays, 8 p.m. Starts: Jan. 22. Continues through April 5, 2009
