Photo Flash: Steve Silver's BEACH BLANKET BABYLON Continues at Club Fugazi

Steve Silver's Beach Blanket Babylon, is the world's longest running musical revue in the world. Known internationally for its extravagant costumes, outrageous hats, show-stopping numbers and hilarious puns of pop culture and political characters, the show is an "only in San Francisco" experience. Scroll below for photos from the show!

The show 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 characters, including President Barack & Michelle Obama, Gangnam Style, Prince William, Kate Middleton and the Queen of England, Honey Boo Boo Child, Governor Jerry Brown, Justin Bieber, Nicki Minaj, Hilary & Bill Clinton, Oprah Winfrey, Nancy Pelosi, Michael Jackson, Adele, General David Patraeus, "50 Shades of Grey" and the San Francisco Giants.

The show began on June 7, 1974, when Steve Silver produced a small show in the back room of the Savoy Tivoli Restaurant in San Francisco. There were 214 seats crammed into a tiny space. The floor was covered with two tons of sand; a lifeguard tore tickets at the door and sprayed the backs of people's hand with Coppertone.

The show was to run for six weeks...that was over 39 years ago. 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, continues to dazzle audiences at Club Fugazi in San Francisco's North Beach.

Beach Blanket Babylon performs at Club Fugazi, 678 Beach Blanket Babylon Blvd., San Francisco, Calif., running Wed.-Fri. at 8 p.m.; Sat. at 6:30 & 9:30 p.m. and Sun. at 2:00 & 5:00 p.m. (Matinees).
