  • Shelton Theater 533 Sutter Street San Francisco, CA, 94102 United States (map)


Fou Fou Ha!, San Francisco’s cartoon cabaret ensemble is returning after a sold-out run with their hit show “Whoa-Man! A musical” at the Shelton Theater every Friday and Saturday in October and November 2015. *Amelia performing Saturdays only*

Check out these clips for a taste:

Whoa-Man is a satirical look at the lives of four women and the tortures in trying to find “perfection” in a modern world. A story only clowns could tell. Shoulder pads and dance routines will dazzle and elevate you, leaving you wanting more. You will laugh, sing and cry at Fou Fou Ha’s “Whoa-Man! A musical”.

The cast includes Jasper Patterson of the New Eccentrics, Bobby Barnaby of SF Boylesque, Allegra Davidson, Amelia Van Brunt, Courtney Cavagnero, Janelle La Riza, Karenna Weill, Lucas Reshi and Dyon Lain. A delectable musical score ranging from Odesza to Goldfrap, from Broadway tunes to Missy Elliot. Produced by Tommy Arnold. Tickets can be purchased at

The Shelton Theater was founded in 1993 by Matt Shelton where plays, films, improvisation, musicals, standup comedy, solo performers, poetry slams, and fine art installations continue to inspire locals and tourists alike in the current downtown San Francisco location. The theater named after legendary actor/director/teacher Jean Shelton who came to San Francisco in 1961 from New York where she brought back an extensive knowledge of the art and craft of acting. Her husband, the late Robert Elross, was a leading arts figure having worked with Dave Brubeck, roomed with aspiring comic Woody Allen in the 50’s in North Beach and directed and founded many local theaters here in the Bay Area. Among the many shows he directed was the West Coast premiere of The Crucible with the legendary Actors Workshop in San Francisco in 1956 with producers Herbert Blau and Jules Irving; both went on to found the Lincoln Center in New York.
