Beach Blanket Babylon  
Club Fugazi Beach Blanket Babylon
 
Steve Silver's Beach Blanket Babylon is the world's longest-running musical revue. Since 1974, this San Francisco institution has followed Snow White on a musical comedy quest around the world, where she runs into satirically portrayed pop culture and political celebrities, an impressive array of gigantic hats and one show-stopping musical number after another. Because the show is constantly updated with new costumes, hats and characters, it rewards repeat visits. Among the familiar faces you might see spoofed in Beach Blanket's latest incarnation: Lady Gaga, Barack and Michelle Obama, the cast of Glee, Kate Middleton and Adele. Even after nearly 40 years, Beach Blanket Babylon remains one of San Francisco's wildest evenings of live entertainment.
   
Cabaret  
The San Francisco Playhouse Cabaret
 
Cliff Bradshaw, an American author working on a novel in pre-WWII Berlin, falls in love with the vivacious Sally Bowles, a singer at the local Kit Kat Klub. Their dream-like romance is tested by the political upheaval that changes their lives dramatically. Even after 50 years, this classic Tony Award-winning musical remains painfully prophetic, reminding us through Sally and the Emcee's lost souls what horrors humans are capable of, lest we ever forget.
   
Cry It Out  
Custom Made Theatre Cry It Out
 
Starring three Bay Area favorites - Martha Brigham, Lauren English and Lauren Spencer - Just Theatre, in association with Custom Made Theatre Co, presents Cry it Out. The hit of the 2017 Humana Festival, Cry it Out is a hilarious, provocative, honest look at parenthood, class and the impossibility of "having it all."A comedy with dark edges, Cry it Out takes an honest look at the absurdities of being home with a baby, the power of female friendship, the dilemma of going back to work, and the effect class has on parenthood in America. Four months ago, Jessie was a corporate lawyer with a glamorous Manhattan life. Today, she's in dirty yoga pants, trying to comfort a screaming newborn and is desperate to talk to anyone besides the Food Network. So when she spies a fellow new mom and neighbor, Lina, at the local Stop & Shop, she vaults over the cantaloupe to introduce herself, and a fast friendship is born. But their intimacy is punctured by a new, upper-class mom who is having "a hard time," in their coffee klatch. Reluctantly, the duo tries to become a trio, but with very mixed-and surprising-results.
   
Hamilton  
Orpheum Theatre Hamilton
 
The biggest Broadway show since The Book of Mormon is hitting the road on its first national tour. Written by Tony, Grammy and Emmy Award winner Lin Manuel Miranda, Hamilton is a true landmark of American culture, tearing up the musical theatre rulebook with a score that is equal parts Sondheim and Notorious B.I.G., and a cast of ethnically diverse actors in the roles of the Founding Fathers. The story centers on Alexander Hamilton, one of our most important (and colorful) characters, who rose from his humble orphaned beginnings to play a major role in making America the country it is today.
