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

I really enjoyed this play. The acting was superb as was the direction. The staging was very minimal and clever and it worked very well.
<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>
About the Ticket Supplier: Actors Theatre of San Francisco
Founded in August of 1989 by a group of professional actors and directors who shared a common desire to produce ensemble theatre works, the founding members of the Actors Theatre of San Francisco committed themselves to creating a permanent repertory company whose work would reflect their ideals of ensemble theatre: a theatre where all the participants share the same artistic vision, have a unified approach to the rehearsal process and a desire to create revelatory theatre that surpasses their desire for individual gain. The founding members gave themselves no restriction as to style, content or period. Instead, they committed themselves to producing theatre that is designed to enlighten and illuminate the human condition.
