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

Great fun. The principals especially were wonderful. Juliet radiated beauty, and happiness until the tragic part starts- then she went through the gamut of emotions flawlessly and convincingly. Romeo was convincingly in love, energetic, impulsive, totally romantic. All the supporting cast was good, especially the nurse/prince and Benvolio/mother- the supporting actors doubled. The young people conveyed early adolescence very well- active, funloving, bawdy, quarrelsome. The action was a bit too manic for my taste, and there were mild sadistic and homosexual overtones that seemed out of place for the play, though fine for the Bay Area. CalShakes, as always, is a friendly, beautiful place to spend an evening. We were glad we brought cushions for the hard seats and a blanket for the cold,- we didn't need the binoculars. Great fun.

Not a lover of Shakespeare, but found this performance to be simply wonderful! Beautiful setting and simply staged, the actors are so vibrant and engaging, that you're immediately drawn to this timeless story. Great theater in our own back yard.
Terrace seating does not have pre-placed chairs; you may bring your own low-backed beach chair or rent one on site for $3.00.
This venue is outdoors. The theatre provides complimentary blankets on chilly evenings, but remember to dress warmly for cool nights.
