For Snow White, the trials of dating go beyond an app. In “Beach Blanket Babylon,” the princess travels around the globe searching for Prince Charming. Her far-flung quest leads to encounters with many colorful characters, including politicians, celebrities, and pop culture figures — from Stormy Daniels to Kanye West and from Ruth Bader Ginsburg to Oprah. The characters perform satirical renditions of an ever-changing lineup of pop songs. It is a wild musical satire accented with outrageous costumes and gigantic headpieces that include towering fruit hats and crowns.
This political and pop culture musical revue began its run in 1974 at San Francisco’s Savoy Tivoli. “Beach Blanket Babylon” now lives in Club Fugazi in the city’s North Beach district.

Two tours of “Beach Blanket Babylon” have been produced in London and Las Vegas to commemorate the show’s 20th and 25th anniversaries.
