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
Reviews & Ratings
Candida is Shaw’s brilliant, witty, and trenchant comedy about a morally superior clergyman in turn-of-the-20th-century London, his enigmatically charismatic wife, and the wildly romantic young poet who puts the very foundation of their marriage to the ultimate test.
Cal Shakes Artistic Director Jonathan Moscone, in a return to the works of Shaw following his critically-acclaimed production of Man and Superman in 2007, will direct.
"Candida is endlessly fascinating to me as I continue to discover the complex nuances of each character, and of the play’s highly charged circumstances,” says Moscone. “Underneath the veneer of Shavian humor and wit is a piercingly painted portrait of the sometimes savage undercurrents running through the veins of the seeming complacency of married life.”
The cast of Candida includes Cal Shakes Associate Artist Julie Eccles (The Pastures of Heaven, An Ideal Husband) in the title role and A.C.T. core acting company member Anthony Fusco (Clybourne Park, Prospero in Cal Shakes’ The Tempest (2006)) as Reverend James Morrell. Others in the cast include Nick Gabriel (A.C.T. core company member; Michael Tolliver in the workshop production of Tales of the City) as Eugene Marchbanks; Alexandra Henrikson (Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson at Williamstown Theatre Festival, Hell House at St. Ann’s Warehouse) as Miss Proserpine Garnett; Jarion Monroe (Cal Shakes’ The Tempest and Macbeth (1992); twenty seasons at Berkeley Rep) as Mr. Burgess, and Nicholas Pelczar (Titus Andronicus, Macbeth) as Reverend Lexy Mill.
