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

This was recommended to us by a San Francisco native and we're so glad that we went. It's musical theater, and is famous for huge hats that the actors wear. Although the show is decades old, the writers keep it relevant by adding modern references...More

Took a group to Beach Blanket Babylon and it didn’t disappoint. The costumes are amazing and the talent is fantastic and entertaining. If you are looking for a fun night out, with some laughs, I’d suggest giving this show a try.

Went to see this musical in San Francisco ‘s Little Italy area. Didn’t know what to expect but was pleasantly surprised. It is a satire of what is going on politics. Laughed through the entire 90 minute show. A must see.

This comedy show was great! Such enormous hats and wild outfits! The performers have good voices and poke fun at all sorts of characters. Best to park your opinions at the door though - if you are easily offended by political satire, you will get...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.

Generally, although it's probably a better idea to call Yellow or Uber or Lyft for a faster ride after the show.

Capital Steps is all political. This show is just funny, with a little political humor thrown in. They are constantly updating the show to reflect current events. Very funny!
