A great night out very colourful with some great singing. Some of it does not make much sense but in part is very funny with some outrageous well thought out costumes

I love San Francisco and have visited many main attractions in my travels to NoCal, along with lesser known sites. My husband and I decided to see this show as part of my 40th birthday celebration based on the strong TA reviews. It wasn't worth...More

I haven't been to a performance since the late 90's and it lived up to my expectations. I brought my husband and two teenage daughters to a Sunday matinee and they all thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Fast paced and lots of fun, definitely a great option...More

A good, funny show if you like satire and seeing political figures and celebs taken thru the hoop - I liked the sketches on Bill Cosby and also Putin, though the Trump family one was surprisingly bland ..... it seems to have lost its edge...More

A wonderful farcical cabaret with contemporary character comedy in the form of wondrous costumes, persona-related song snippets and humor and oh so wonderful hair and enormous headgear. With a great band and housed in a small theatre giving one an intimate relationship with the entire...More

Thanks for your great review of Beach Blanket Babylon!

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.

Looking to save money- looking at the seating chart it seems that rear balcony is the only area where it is stadium seating. (raised rows) If I sit somewhere in rear balcony (cheapest seats)- can I see even if there is someone tall in front of me? Will I still have a good view of the stage? Afraid to get center balcony in case theres someone tall in front of me, plus it doesn't look like raised rows

The entire balcony (minus the Side Boxes) is stadium-style seating. Each row is below the row behind it. The Rear Balcony is the most inexpensive section in the theater, but you will have stadium seats in the Center... More

Based on your experience, is it better to buy seats in the Magnin Box balcony or Premium Orchestra ground level?

Response from beachblanketsf | Property representative |
We think both seats are excellent and provide reserved seating. The Premium Orchestra seats are located on the main floor of the theater, about four rows from the stage. You'll be at a cabaret table with chairs. The... More

Forgot to ask- what kind of seats are there? Do all seats have backs? I read that some are benches

Thank you for the question. All seats have backs to them. The Rear Balcony section is comprised of padded benches with padded backs.
