I also wrote a review on club fugazi as well. Go to this show if you are in SF but book early the show sells out weeks in advance and every showing is a sell out. 7 shows a week. Seating is open seating in your section so make sure you show up about 1:15 before the show to get... More

I have lived in the SF Bay Area longer than this has been running and I just saw Beach Blanket Babylon for the first time in 2013, I can't believe I waited all these years to see it. So fun and entertaining!

We had seen reviews of BBB and thought it looked like a good fun night out. We only booked the day before but managed to get seats in the front lounge section, which had good views. The show was fantastic - hilarious, camp, over to top and well written. It pokes fun in an affectionate way at celebrities, politicians, royalty... More

We saw this show 20 years ago and it was funny--now 20 years later, it's still hilarious. This is a satirical view of current politics and "icons" that are in the news. They must change the show every week---it's so up to date on what's going on in the world. The headdresses are unbelievable and the performers are fantastic. You... More

An institution in San Francisco, BBB keeps the old reliable sketches and the fabulous headwear and then adds very current satire and humor on current events. It is impossible not to leave with your cheeks aching from laughter.
