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've come to expect excellent productions from Actors Theater of San Francisco, and this was brilliant. Kept my full attention for the entire play. Joe Napoli in particular stood out, his acting was outstanding. We had seen him previously in a limited role in Glengarry Glen Ross, here we could see his full range of talents. Highly recommended.
Directed by Carole Robinson and Christian Phillips
Featuring Joseph Napoli, Dean Shreiner and Sydney Gamble
Running time is approximately two hours, including one intermission.
This production is recommended for ages 14 and up.
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.
