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

Evenings are comprised of seven fully-produced short plays. These plays are selected from among the 36 works developed as part of the Monday Night PlayGround staged reading series held throughout the past season at Berkeley Repertory Theatre. The 2005 Festival also includes staged readings of two new full-length plays commissioned by PlayGround.
This season inaugurates the relationship of PlayGround and San Francisco's Zeum Theater. "Following a decade of explosive growth and our search for a new San Francisco home, we are grateful for this opportunity to relocate the Best of PlayGround Festival to Zeum." Says PlayGround's artistic director, James Kleinmann. "I can't imagine a better platform for a new generation of Bay Area playwrights."
