Steve Silver's Beach Blanket Babylon is the world's longest-running musical revue. Since 1974, this San Francisco institution has followed Snow White on a musical comedy quest around the world, where she runs into satirically portrayed pop-culture and political celebrities, an impressive array of gigantic hats and one showstopping musical number after another. Because the show is constantly updated with new costumes, hats and characters, it rewards repeat visits. Among the familiar faces you might see spoofed in Beach Blanket's latest incarnation: Lady Gaga, Barack and Michelle Obama, the cast of Glee, Kate Middleton and Adele. Even after nearly 40 years, Beach Blanket Babylon remains one of San Francisco's wildest evenings of live entertainment. Learn More

This was my first time at the Altarena Playhouse and I will definitely be going back! If I had paid for a full price ticket, I would not have been disappointed. The woman who played Blanche DuBois was fantastic. The theater is very intimate and they served complimentary soda and cookies during the intermission.
<p>Tennessee Williams’ steamy and sensual A Streetcar Named Desire is best known as the landmark American drama that introduced Marlon Brando to the world. But there’s so much more to this vivid story of Blanche DuBois and her tragic struggle with fantasy and reality. Rediscover Streetcar’s smoldering poetry and shocking intensity in Altarena Playhouse's intimate, ‘in-the-round’ production. This is the very first production of a full-length Tennessee Williams play in the Altarena’s history. The production is directed by Sue Trigg, who directed the Altarena's critically acclaimed productions of "Death Of A Salesman" and "Morning's At Seven."</p>
