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

This show is more than delightful as it is insightful as well. The performer takes on multiple distinct personae as he weaves a tale of right wing fundamentalism run amuck. If you have a liberal funny bone this show is for you. I loved it.

In Jurassic Ark, Brother Dallas has a made-for-TV ministry and one majestic mission: He’s hell-bent on making a big-budget blockbuster showing that Creationism is Truth! That man and dinosaurs once lived side-by-side! But sins from the preacher’s past (now 17 million views and counting) and Satan himself threaten his holy vision. Not to mention Hollywood – where studio hotshots have their own twisted take on bringing in a big box office.
Busting with its own special effects of whirlwind physicality and a compelling soundtrack, Jurassic Ark is written and performed by David Caggiano, who has performed at The Marsh, StageWerx’s Solo Sundays, CounterPULSE’s WordsFirst, Berkeley’s Tell It On Tuesday and, of course, EXIT Theatre.
Jurassic Ark is directed by solo specialist Mark Kenward, who has created, performed, developed and directed nearly two dozen one-person shows, including his own acclaimed adaptation of Moby Dick.
