Holidays in San Francisco: festively decorated cable cars, ice skating in Union Square and the uproariously hilarious antics and stunningly beautiful music of the San Francisco Gay Men's Chorus. It is the "alternative" holiday experience only available in the City By The Bay.
Highlights of the holiday show are brand new pieces by Broadway and Cabaret composers Ernie Lijoi and Lawrence Rush: “Merry Everything” and and the charming, hilarious, and pithy “Merry Christmas, I Win.” Also, this season the Chorus presents an incredible world premiere by award-winning composer Laura Karpman set to a text written by best-selling author Rebecca Walker honoring the role mothers play in our lives - especially at the holidays.
And don't miss our annual tradition - "Home For The Holidays" - at the Castro Theatre on Christmas Eve at 5PM, 7PM and 9PM. This is the 26th year of our "Home For The Holidays" show - we hope you'll join us for the festivities!
