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

Highlight of the trip. A must do. Funny, timely. A very enjoyable evening. Start with a nice Italian dinner in Little Italy. Club Fugazzi is conveniently located in the heart of Little Italy.

Wonderful performances all around. Funny and current. Very talented cast who seem to really enjoy what they're doing. Nice venue with very pleasant staff. It's close quarters, but the people are around us were fun.

A very professional musical revue, that had us laughing all the way through. Not all of the jokes can be understood by an English audience, but for anyone with a little knowledge of contemporary US politics will get it. A little on the expensive side,...More

What a ripoff. Paid full price tickets for snooty waiters with overpriced drinks. Sat in the back with terrible views. Had more fun entertainment walking to the theatre.

It's all about hats :) a great cabaret show, good singers and a lot of laugh. Sometimes the storyline seems a bit artificial but in the end its very funny.

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.

The reason behind our 21+ policy Wednesday-Saturday is because we serve liquor. It is like a bar in that respects, we cannot have anyone under 21 during the shows where we have alcohol.

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
