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

Play, music and storyline came alive after about the first 15 minutes, which was slow and not very engaging. Needs a "hook" in the beginning with music, singing and dancing to get the audience involved and engaged.
Definitely more enjoyable as the characters and their stories unfolded and the singing and dancing brought the stories alive.
Our party sat in the 4th tier and didn't have any problems seeing the stage or the actors. Not a bad seat in this intimate little theater--it's a gem in downtown Martinez!
A hilarious play with music by Laurence Carr. It’s 1919, and nine seasoned show folks are stuck in Philadelphia. While their current world is the small time circut of split weeks, they keep their hopes alive for the ‘Big Time.’ The players are a cross-section of the last generation of hoofers, comics and ‘novelty acts’ who kept America entertained while Vaudeville was king.
