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

Cal Shakes does not disappoint with their last production of this season. Much Ado has always been one of my favorite Shakespeare comedies, especially with the sharp tongues of Benedick and Beatrice. And here, the actors who play those two roles certainly did not disappoint. Their chemistry was fantastic, though I have to admit that Benedick won the audience over with his deliveries and expressions. The rest of the cast was just as good. Don John was way over the top, but it worked for me, in a cartoonish villain kind of way. It's light and good fun, so enjoy what is presented!
The men return from war only to find new battles on the field of love in Italy’s countryside. Artistic Director Jonathan Moscone helms Shakespeare’s comedy of love delayed, filled with villainy, betrayal, and a glorious ending celebrating the joy of love and the power of redemption.
