Two iconic San Francisco institutions - the San Francisco Gay Men's Chorus (SFGMC) and Steve Silver's Beach Blanket Babylon - come together for Snow White & Her Merry Men, a concert celebrating SFGMC's 35th anniversary at Davies Symphony Hall (Van Ness & Grove Street, San Francisco 94102) performing for two nights only on Monday, March 25 and Tuesday, March 26, 2013. Featuring more than 300 men from SFGMC and the cast of Beach Blanket Babylon, this marks the first time that both organizations have performed together on-stage. Tickets for Snow White & Her Merry Men range in price from $15-$75 and are available now online at SFGMC.org or through City Box Office at (415) 392-4400.
Snow White has left Club Fugazi and will search for her "Prince Charming" at Davies Symphony Hall with the aid of the SFGMC, whose dynamic sound and signature "choralography" create a once-in-a-lifetime concert experience. In this never-before-seen collaboration, the 300 men of SFGMC are joined by the Beach Blanket Babylon cast in singing classic favorites and custom songs created especially for this show. The show-stopping numbers will be infused with spectacular costumes, dazzling hats and appearances by some of Beach Blanket Babylon's beloved characters including King Louis, Glinda the Good, Pineapple Princess, Banana Carmen, Elvis Presley, Tina Turner, JAmes Brown and Barbra Streisand.
"The San Francisco Gay Men's Chorus is honored to bring the talent of these two iconic San Francisco institutions together on the Davies stage for the first time," said Dr. Timothy Seelig, SFGMC Artistic Director. "It is sure to be an 'Only in San Francisco' evening!"
"Beach Blanket Babylon is very excited to be collaborating with the renowned San Francisco Gay Men's Chorus," said Jo Schuman Silver, producer of Beach Blanket Babylon. "We are thrilled to come together with this Bay Area institution to create an evening of pure San Francisco entertainment."
