Beach Blanket Babylon

I think by now there is a law that if you come to San Francisco, you have to see Beach Blanket Babylon, (well not really!) but why wouldn’t you want to see it.  Beach Blanket is our best-loved longest running musical comedy revue (always a great spoof on pop culture!) and it’s been playing at the same Theatre for over 30 years!  For heaven’s sake that is why we renamed Green Street to Beach Blanket Babylon Blvd.  This show is world-renowned for its extravagant costumes, outrageously huge hats, biting satire and is constantly changing with the times.  And oh boy the times they is a changing!

The Shelton Theatre
“Shopping!  The Musical”

“Shopping! The Musical” is a musical comedy revue of original songs and sketches about everybody's second-favorite (in some cases, favorite) activity.  This irreverent and clever show targets various stores, hilarious customers, and merchants, while showcasing a very social commentary on the art of Shopping!

Teatro Zinzani

Set along San Francisco's historic waterfront, Teatro ZinZanni is a bewitching evening of European cabaret, cirque, divas and madmen, spectacle and sensuality with live music and a gourmet five-course dinner — set in the nightclub of your dreams. Now in its seventh year, Teatro ZinZanni has become a Bay Area entertainment institution.

Theatre 39
"Insignificant Others"

Five friends who move from the Midwest to San Francisco, find themselves falling in love with San Francisco and each other as they face any number of challenges, as well as various ups and downs.  This show is a romantic musical comedy in two acts and is perfect for anyone who loves San Francisco or would like to get to know San Francisco better.  Insignificant Others is playing weekends at Theatre 39 which is located as it happens on Pier 39.

Judy's Tips

When you arrive in San Francisco, look for two of our free weekly publications, the SF Weekly and the Bay Guardian. They can be found on most newspaper boxes on most any street corner.

These two publications have up to the minute extensive listings of that week's events, newly announced concerts, many many small clubs and music venues. But don't expect directions or maps to these venues, that's what our Local's Insiders Secrets to San Francisco" package is for.
