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

I attended the preview, so I expect they will snap it into perfect shape within a couple of performances.
Terrific script, great venue, clever staging. The acting was mostly fantastic, but the men's English accents sometimes took the believability down a notch or two. And though just a bit part, the waiter's accent was somewhere between American, Italian, and English... but really none of them.
<p>The plot revolves around two couples, Robert and Emma, and Jerry and the unseen Judith. Robert, Emma and Jerry become involved in a web of infidelity: Emma and Jerry conduct an seven-year affair, which Robert discovers in its fourth year. Robert then cheats on Emma. This play memory play uses the distortion of time to reveal how each character is emotionally isolated by their actions of deceit and self -gratification. Considered Pinter's masterwork Betrayal uses this love triangle to create moments of awkward and strained encounters and brutal silence that get below the surface of social propriety and to the depths of human interaction.
Betrayal is a richly textured drama that exposes social pretense and unmitigated emotions that draws us into the same complex world we all inhabit and makes us believe simultaneously in the endurance and the transience of relationships and in the ecstasy and pain of intimacy.</p>
