I saw BBB 20 years ago; wondered if it could maintain its quality and freshness after so long...and...IT DOES! Took my 18 year old daughter to the Sunday matinee and she loved it, too.

I still can't, and probably will never be able to, fully reconcile or comprehend what I have experienced at Beach Blanket Babylon. All I can definitively say is that a void in my life has been filled and I am now a more complete human being after...continued

I think this is a definate must see if visiting San Francisco! The current event and political sattire may be a few months old (such as Sarah Palin's "I can see Russia from my house") but it wasn't so out of date that you wouldn't still laugh at...continued

I thoroughly enjoyed the vocals which was exceptional. There wasn't much of a story line which was Snow White looking for her ideal "prince" and some of the transitions weren't as solid but the vocals definitely made up for it. There was so much...continued

I thought this event was okay. This doesn't seem to be a show for a younger crowd (I'm in my late twenties). It was entertaining but I found myself falling asleep partway through the show. The jokes are all very political, which is fine, but we've...continued

I took a friend who was visiting from Chicago. We had a great time, laughing and clapping to the show. It's fun, but you need to come in with an open attitude and a little pop culture knowledge. The couple in front of us fell asleep, but I think...continued

I trained as an actor/singer for years. I have performed in and attended countless plays and musicals throughout the years and Beach Blanket Babylon is one of the most outstanding shows I've ever seen! Fun, current, silly, musically superior and a...continued

I was fun and dramatic - also funny and outrqageous. I think getting to the event early is important as you are seated on a first come, first served basis.

We had seats that were crammed in between people, so while every seat is a good seat...continued

I was mildly concerned the side box seats would suck, they didn't. Awesome seats, great show. I'd definitely recommend this show to anyone

I was very disappointed. I had high expectations since the SF Chronicle guy gives it his highest rating (little guy clapping and jumping of his chair). The material was dated, not particularly funny and the nonstop singing was irritating not to...continued

I was worried that I wouldn't get good seats if I ordered from Goldstar but I got just as good or even better than people who paid full price! The seats are on a first come basis so you should arrive 45min to 1 hour before start time. Dress is...continued

I wasn't sure what to expect when I first booked tickets, but I thought it would be a good "tourist" thing to do. First, we met so many great people in line waiting to get it that even the waiting was fun! Buying tickets through Goldstar and...continued

I went with a group of friends, some of whom had seen it before, and we all enjoyed the performance, except we all agreed it was almost painfully loud. Two of us actually made earplugs out of our napkins which helped to dampen the sound. Our...continued

I would describe is as a Saturday Night Live, Drag Show Musical. Funny at times but a bot over the top and not in the best way..

I'm staying in San Fran for a few months and a friend recommended I go see this for a true San Fran experience. I am so glad I did.

Had such a great night. Dinner and drinks in North Beach, then this fabulous show. Great songs, singing, jokes...continued

I've been several times before. Brought out of town guests and thought it might be dull for me as last time, a few years ago, they had not changed much. But this time they really changed a lot! Definitely worth a repeat visit.
