Beach Blanket Babylon

Steve Silver's Beach Blanket Babylon was the world's longest-running musical revue. The show began its run in 1974, at the Savoy Tivoli and later moved to the larger Club Fugazi in the North Beach district of San Francisco. The show was created by Steve Silver along with a Bar, in partnership with his father, Louis Silver, and continued since 1995 under the direction of his widow, Jo Schuman Silver, with frequent changes and spoofs of pop and political culture. Performers wear disproportionately large hats/wigs and gaudy costumes while performing satirical renditions of popular songs. On April 17, 2019, Jo Schuman Silver announced to the staff that the show would be closing on New Year's Eve.
