"For 40 years, Beach Blanket Babylon has been an iconic fixture in the great city of San Francisco. As we open the doors of City Hall for an unforgettable event to be shared with the public, we are honored that The City's dignitaries, leaders and fellow arts organizations will be celebrating this milestone with us." says Schuman Silver. "Originally, Steve thought the show would only run six weeks. 40 years later, his celebrated genius and creative vision is as alive as the day the show opened in 1974."  

Beginning in March, legendary Beach Blanket Babylon hats from the past 40 years will be on display at various locations throughout the San Francisco Bay Area, including eight Macy's stores, Davies Symphony Hall, SFJazz Center, American Conservatory Theater, Berkeley Repertory Theatre, California Shakespeare Theater, the de Young Museum, Wilkes Bashford, Ghirardelli Chocolate Marketplace in Ghirardelli Square, The Fairmont San Francisco and The Westin St. Francis. Specific details about the hats and their locations will be announced in early March.   

Celebrating over 15,000 performances, Beach Blanket Babylon has become a world renowned record-breaking success. Seen by nearly six million people from around the world, this internationally acclaimed musical revue - a San Francisco institution - captures the wild, witty and wonderful world of Steve Silver. Premiering at the Savoy Tivoli in June 1974, and then moving to Club Fugazi in 1975, Beach Blanket Babylon continues to delight audiences with its hilarious spoofs of pop culture, spectacular costumes and outrageously gigantic hats.
