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

Quotes & Highlights
- "Simplicity is magical in Orlando. That’s as true for Sarah Ruhl’s lovingly crafted adaptation of Virginia Woolf’s time-bending, gender-shifting novel as it is for Woolf’s mesmerizing prose. In the TheatreFirst Orlando ... the simple directness of staging and acting work an incremental wonder all their own." --San Francisco Chronicle
- "Ruhl's adaptation beautifully captures the spare eloquence of Woolf's language from the novel ... Director Domenique Lozano gives the play a graceful and sparkling staging with a strong cast." --KQED
- "Admirers of Woolf and Ruhl will be very happy with this production, as will anybody looking for a good time, lots of laughter, and something to think about." --theatrestorm.com
- "(Domenique) Lozano has directed the show in a fast-paced combination of dance and slapstick ... and the half-dozen in the cast perform all that's demanded of them beautifully for the astoundingly rapid hour-and-45-minutes the show plays." --San Jose Mercury News
A magical night of theatre directed by TheatreFirst, ACT and Cal Shakes Associate Artist, Domenique Lozano (ACT's A Christmas Carol, TheatreFirst's The Drawer Boy) and produced by TheatreFirst, one of the Bay Area's preeminent new works companies.
