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 didn't know what it would mean to see "news on stage", but this performance (they call it a workshop, but it was production quality) was incredible. Two one act plays were written based on 2 investigative reports (I looked them up on Tides' website after the show - the stories were published in the past 18 months), but it is not just a recreation of events. Each took artistic license while staying true to the original report. Loved seeing exposed tech & the "story wall" on stage. Great ensemble & the sound design was fantastic. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! I was there on opening along with Phil Bronstein (formerly of the Chronicle). Might go back for the talkback the 2nd weekend Saturday night.
