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. Now celebrating its 40th anniversary, Beach Blanket Babylon remains one of San Francisco's wildest evenings of live entertainment. Learn More

Worst piece of theatre I have ever seen. (and I am a frequent theatre goer). I walked out after the first act for the first time in my life. Flat, monotone, dated, this play should never be performed. The actors had no "play" between them it...continued

“The big, explosive laughter that starts early in David Mamet’s November is of a kind I haven’t heard in decades.” —The Village Voice
“November gets my vote! Like an expert marksman in a shooting gallery, the playwright takes aim at just about every hot-button issue of the day, scoring a bull’s eye every time.” —Backstage East
“A hilarious, timely, decidedly un-Mamet-like laughfest.” —Hollywood Reporter
“Sublime! One of the first breezy and intelligent comedies of substance we’ve seen in a long time.” --The Villager
“Extremely funny.” —The New York Times
“A raucous new Mamet comedy.” —The Times (London)
David Mamet’s fiendishly funny, over-the-top new comedy November, fresh from its smash-hit success on Broadway, offers no mercy in its satirical stab at American politics. Meet President Charles Smith, the most corrupt, inept buffoon ever to sit in the Oval Office. It’s the final days of his bid for a second term, but the country is a mess and his poll numbers are “lower than Gandhi’s cholesterol.” Toss in a lesbian speechwriter longing to marry her sweetheart on national television, a cynical chief of staff, Thanksgiving turkeys awaiting pardon, and enough shady backroom scheming to make even a Glengarry Glen Ross con man blush, and you’ve got a new Mamet masterpiece.
