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

The Berkeley City Club was a wonderful venue for this event. The play took place in the living room of a beautiful, castle-like home - that was built by Julia Morgan. The room only sat about 60 people. Seating was two tiered - so everyone had a great seat. The play itself was outstanding. It covered Emelie's life from young adulthood to her death at the age of 41. It conveyed the struggle for balance between romance and science - beautifully. The story was moving - and comprehensive - and remarkably easy to follow. I would recommend it highly to anyone interested in the french enlightenment period.
Quotes & Highlights
- "Robert Parsons' smitten, vain and at times devious Voltaire echoes the eroticism of intellect, Blythe Foster doing lovely work as Emilie's occasional stand-in and as Voltaire's lover-niece ... Colin Thomson is poignantly comic as Emilie's indulgent husband ...Tyler McKenna is a sweetly infatuated last lover, and Marie Shell is aptly disapproving as her mother and other ladies." --Robert Hurwitt, San Francisco Chronicle

About the Ticket Supplier: Symmetry Theatre Company
Symmetry's mission is to create professionally produced theatre that will excite, stimulate and challenge their audiences. The plays they choose may never have more male than female roles and in any given show there may never be more male than female Equity contracts. In addition they will choose plays that acknowledge that women's stories are as important as men's and in so doing we will hope to educate the public and the theatre community at large to the need for more balance on the boards.
