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

It is not your usual stage show. Take-offs on famous people, but humorous, not mean and very good music, dancing, and singing., Hard to describe . Very high energy performance, Creative costuming and writing and probably the best casting onstage today. I have paid triple this price for a great deal less, but don't go because it is a bargain,...

This was a great date night for my wife and I. We saw the Saturday 6pm show. We had an early dinner at Sotto Mare, a 2 minute walk away. People started lining up for the show at 4:30. We sat in the center balcony and because we were early, we got to choose our seats. We got aisle seats... More

Great evening of entertainment, totally out there and hysterical. The show was current and enjoyable. As a tourist it worked, even the US centric humour. Highly recommend the experience

Thank you for the review! We are proud that the show appeals to San Franciscans, as well as out of town guests. We always update the show to be current, so the next time you see us, we'll have different characters, songs, and dialogue! More

Its been years since we have seen the show. It is a blast and truly a San Fransisco original -- the wait staff was very helpful and friendly. The seats comfortable - the show had some parts that were very current and some...well...not-so-current that probably should be replaced soon as it gave the show a dated feel (the Glee segment...

Thank you for the review of the show. We're glad you're a repeat guest. Elvis is one of those "timeless" characters that everyone knows. The Glee segment was a great hit while the show was on, but will be replaced in the coming weeks. We hope you'll come back to see the show soon! More

You have to take the time to go see this Play. We have seen it twice, both around Christmas time, which I think is the best for the costumes and the hats at the end. You have to have an open mind and want to laugh at what is going on in the world today. I think it is for... More

Thanks for your great review of the show! Our holiday show is a big hit and has become tradition for many families. My favorite part of the holiday show is the tap dancing Christmas trees! Steve Silver was such a creative individual. The performances Wed-Sat are for 21+ because we sell alcohol. Do keep in mind our 2 PM and... More

I dare you not to have the best 90 minutes of your life in a musical revue! There is a reason that the genius of Steve Silver's legacy lives on.

Must, must do if you can find the time. This is a scream it is so funny. We have gone several times over the past 25 years ( actually stood in line behind Warren Buffet and his family once) and they keep it new and edgy. I laugh just thinking about it.

Staying in North Beach / Telegraph Hill

Neighbourhood Profile
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. Peruse a bookstore for the literature of Kerouac, Ferlinghetti and Ginsberg, grab some gelato and head to Washington Square for a perfect afternoon of people watching. Just east of North Beach, the hills and staircases of Telegraph Hill are a unique delight. At its peak, the art deco Coit Tower provides sweeping panoramic views of the bay and city. The beautifully landscaped Filbert Street Steps, a street too steep for a roadway, rewards those willing to hike uphill. Keep your ears open and you might even hear the squawk of the wild parrots who call this neighbourhood home.
