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.

Fierce feminist Mary Woolley becomes the president of Mount Holyoke College in 1901, on a crusade to stop training pious wives and start giving women a real education. The students respond, even starting a fan club for Woolley's longterm romance with teacher Jeannette Marks.

Inspired by real letters between Woolley and Marks, this fast-paced comedy asks: What is revolution? What does it mean to be at odds with the world? And how the hell do we grow old together? Time Out New York says, "Bull in a China Shop does the sisterhood proud! Heartbreaking, hilarious and delectable."

A masterpiece from one of the greatest dramatists of our time, Could 9 is about sexual politics in colonial Africa and modern-day Britain, in which all our assumptions about sex and gender are stunningly exploded. It is also about relationships - between women and men, men and men, women and women, work, mothers, power, generations, politics, and money, which is why this classic play feels as urgent today as when it made Churchill a household name.

How can we understand the present, if we won't acknowledge the past? Tony Award winner and A.C.T.'s Artistic Director Pam MacKinnon (in her Strand Theater debut) directs this scorching world premiere by playwright Kate Attwell - a contrast of two time-traveling stories focusing on cricket, a game of strict rules and hidden violence. It's 2019 and tensions in the locker room rise during a world-class match between rival women's cricket players from India and England, as secrets spill about relationships, influencers, and the integrity of the sport. Then in 1800 (or so), Abhi, the Number One Sepoy of the East India Co., struggles to force two bungling, cheating British administrators - absorbed in setting down the rules of cricket - to focus on the famine they have created outside the compound walls. Asking hard-hitting questions about colonialism, gender, and power, Testmatch launches Kate Attwell, an exciting new voice in American theater.

When a baking contest and a new doctor offer a chance at a fresh start, she must summon the strength to build her new life in a musical Entertainment Weekly calls "a little slice of heaven."
