Beach Blanket Babylon Musical Revue
Steve Silver's Beach Blanket Babylon was recommended to us by two friends independently. one currently living in San Francisco and the other had just returned from a visit. We purchased tickets via phone. It's a small theater. The shows musical numbers are updated for the times politically so bring your sense of humor. The costumes are outrageous, I'm not quite sure how they wear some of them.We went to a Sunday matinee and had no trouble getting seats.
