The Cable Car Nymphomaniac: A New San Francisco Musical

In 1970, a young woman sued SF MUNI for a cable car crash she claimed turned her into a nymphomaniac. In 2014, FOGG Theatre will turn this story into a musical.

The Cable Car Nymphomaniac is a racy new musical by Tony Asaro and Kirsten Guenther.  Taking a hard and hilarious look at gender roles, it dares to ask "What happens when women want the kind of things women aren't supposed to want?"  Based on the actual events of the 1970 San Francisco cable car sex scandal and set against the backdrop of the sexual revolution, The Cable Car Nymphomaniac is a pro-woman musical ripped from San Francisco headlines.
