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 show-stopping 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 set, music, actor movement throughout the space all made for a festive night out. The acting was very uneven. Usually when one goes to see a production put on specifically by Shakespearian actors one hears clear articulation of the verse.
The Princess was very clear, and her ladies in waiting were generally clear. All of the rustics inc. Jacquinetta and for the most part the page and his nobleman were clear. The male nobility with the exception of the Irish actor (who was good) were often unclear and very difficult to hear or follow. The academics were generally fine.
I was thrilled to get tickets for less than$10 through Goldstar, and given that price I was very glad I attended. Had I paid full price at some $80 I would have been most displeased given the very uneven performance of the actors.
Long Live the BARD!
Shakespeare’s boisterous send-up of all those who try to turn their back on life is a mighty display of every weapon in the youthful playwright’s comic arsenal, from excruciating cross-purposes and impersonations, to drunkenness, bust-ups, and pratfalls. Even more, it is a joyful banquet of language, groaning with puns, rhymes, bizarre syntax, grotesque coinages, and parodies.
This heady combination receives royal treatment from the famed Globe—the world’s pre-eminent exponent of the Bard’s immortal works—and was a hit during the company’s 2007 season. Directed by the Globe’s artistic director Dominic Dromgoole, with designs by Jonathan Fensom and music by Claire van Kampen, the Globe’s production “mixes bare-faced cheek with bare-cheeked bottoms” (The Guardian, London), employing Renaissance staging, costumes, and music.
