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

Central Works always puts on unique plays. This one really did not thrill me. It was odd, choppy, and a bit hard to follow at times. I overheard people talking after that they really did not know what was going on. I did enjoy the actor who played multiple characters. I also thought it was clever how they integrated the video into the performance. It was done well and I am sure the timing was not easy for Jan.
