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

Found this play to be well acted but extremely heavy handed. While I appreciated the talent of the young women, I felt like I was watching a Disney musical--only the subject matter was extremely serious and dark.
Difficult subject matter, so I suppose I'm glad that they attempted to make it enjoyable for young girls to watch. If they liked it, then it was a success, but for my tastes I found much of it made me cringe.
Running time is 90 minutes, with no intermission.
Eve Ensler is a Tony Award-winning playwright, performer and activist. She is the author of The Vagina Monologues, which has been translated into 48 languages and performed in over 140 countries, including sold-out runs off Broadway and on London’s West End. Her experience performing that show inspired her to create V-Day, a global movement to stop violence against women and girls. Her other work includes plays such as The Good Body and Here, the memoir Insecure at Last and the novel I Am an Emotional Creature: The Secret Life of Girls Around the World, which became a New York Times bestseller in 2010.
"Emotional Creature is about being a girl in the world in 2011 and about discovering the girl in each of us," Ensler said in a statement. "It is about changing the verb from “please” to “create” or “defy” or “resist” or “imagine.” It is about traveling and dancing and refusing. It is about telling secrets and breaking taboos and building a posse. Where else would we begin this in America than Berkeley, in what other theatre than Berkeley Rep, which has a gorgeous history of pushing the edge, engaging in social issues, and conjuring community."
