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
Quotes & Highlights
- "Conveys the tears beneath the laughter...though this show is propelled by irreverent humor and burlesque, that's what lingers afterward: the underlying reality of two men who were shaped by life in a gritty little lane in Limerick." --L.A. Times
- "So funny and plays well in the mind's eye that it isn't until you're half-way out the door that you realize how tough and unsentimental it is." --Variety
Frank McCourt is arguably the literary phenomenon of the 90's. Angela's Ashes has sold well into the millions in hard cover and paperback and has been translated into at least 26 languages. His second book "'Tis" is a major bestseller and his award-winning audio tapes sell in the hundreds of thousands worldwide.
On stage, "A Couple of Blaguards" is a bubbling stew of McCourt humor with dashes of poignancy to sharpen the flavor. This "fast paced marvel" runs one hour and forty-five minutes with one intermission.
"A Couple of Blaguards" is the comedic springboard for "Angela's Ashes", "'Tis", and Malachy's "A Monk Swimming".
This brilliantly structured comedy is a proven crowd-pleaser offering solid entertainment value.
