Lonely Planet review

The Mighty Wurlitzer organ rises from the orchestra pit before evening performances and the audience cheers for classics from the Great American Songbook, ending with (sing along, now): 'San Francisco open your Golden Gate/You let no stranger wait outside your door…' If there's a cult classic on the bill, say, Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?, expect participation. Otherwise, crowd are well-behaved and rapt.
