Overview

On June 7, 1974, Steve Silver produced a small show in the back room of the Savoy Tivoli Restaurant in San Francisco. The show was to run for six weeks. That was over 37 years ago... Today, Steve Silver's Beach Blanket Babylon has the distinguished title of "World's Longest Running Musical Revue." The show - a musical spoof known internationally for its extravagant costumes, outrageous hats, show-stopping numbers and hilarious puns of pop culture and political character - has been seen by over 5.5 Million people, including HRC Queen Elizabeth II, Prince Charles and Camilla the Duchess of Cornwall as well as some of Hollywood's biggest stars. "Steve Silver's Beach Blanket Babylon," hailed as "a constant cascade of showstoppers" by the "San Francisco Chronicle", follows Snow White as she takes a fast-paced journey around the world in search of her "Prince Charming." Along the way she encounters a star-studded, ever-changing line-up of hilarious political and pop-culture characters including Donald and Melania Trump, Adele, Hillary & Bill Clinton, Lady Gaga, Kim Kardashian, President Barack & Michelle Obama, Hamilton, Bernie Sanders, Sia, Taylor Swift, Vladimir Putin, Chris Christie, Barbra Streisand, Miley Cyrus, Orange is the New Black, Empire’s Cookie, Oprah and the San Francisco Giants

We had an amazing time watching the talented performers in this wildly entertaining show. It was a fun way to spend a late afternoon. We loved the wit and quick humor of the performers. The headpieces were just amazing. Lots of laughs to be had!

Since the early 1970s (older than many of its actors!), Beach Blanket Babylon still delivers satirical, “pungent” review of current events. Yet there are many traditional elements: consistently high-quality talent, great costumes, funny songs, and generates non-stop giggles and laughter. A tourist must-see and locals...More

I obviously am entertained or I wouldn’t keep coming back! This time we got reserved tickets on the main floor. Excellent seats, I’m not sorry we splurged. The costumes are exquisite, the singing excellent and it’s very funny. Can’t ask for more.

North Beach / Telegraph Hill
The aroma of freshly roasted coffee beans, the sounds
of opera, and the sights of the romantic Italian
ristorante come together to create the charming
neighbourhood of North Beach, once the stomping
grounds for the Beatnik Generation. Although parts of
North Beach are known for nightlife that’s not always
suitable for younger visitors, few neighbourhoods in
the city exude as much European charm and style.

Tickets range from $25 to $150, depending upon the day of the show and where you choose to sit. The theatre is relatively small, so all seats are satisfactory. We like to sit in reserved seating - balcony center, where... More
