San Francisco, I Love You!
San Francisco, I Love You! is the newest, original, full-length work by Footloose Presents at Shelton Theater for THURSDAYS MAY 3 through JUNE 28. Note the early showtime at 7:30 pm and join us in the Shelton bar for a Happy Hour happening from 7:00-7:30. Directed by Mary Alice Fry in collaboration with world class writers, filmmakers, composers and the cast, the show is packed with satire, comedy, drama, music, dance and films. The multi-talented performers play different characters and are part of the ensemble bringing stories onstage about our city of love. You get to see the reactions of writers, composers, choreographers and filmmakers to the changes in San Francisco. The artists are expressing what they love and hate. The pieces are two to ten minutes long in this anthology of plays, musicals, spoken word, dances and a film. These vignettes range from romantic and idyllic to the gritty and not so pretty, and the moods change as quickly as our San Francisco weather. From booms to busts, San Francisco is a crossroads of counterculture cool and capitalist bravado. This fickle city always tries to be mythological. Locals get nostalgic for a San Francisco that they miss, a San Francisco that they never got to see or one that never existed at all. When you arrive, you will be invited to the Shelton Theatre's lower level bar. The cast and crew will already be part of the "Happy Hour" happening. Come early to relax, have a drink, mix and mingle. Then we move into the main theater located next to the bar for the full 75 minute show which includes the following: - 'Round Midnight, a noir style play set on a foggy San Francisco night by Ron Campbell; - SF Real State, a farce about the housing crisis in San Francisco by Jeff Bedillion; - La Llorona, multi-media dance theater created/performed by Xedex and Kristen Rulifson set to a poem by Stephanie Sherman. - Lucha Libre, a dance performance with Xedex and Cesar A. Herrera in full Luchador Mexican wrestling costumes that symbolizes a battle cry for territory being lost in the Mission. - You're Cooking Good, a slapstick comedy food show with a local celebrity chef written and directed by Mary Alice Fry; and a tour of North Beach by Bruce Yelaska. Plus, filmmaker, Molly Stuart, premieres her movie, Mi Casa No Es Mi Casa, about the struggle she and her housemate, dancer/choreographer Xedex, went through in an attempt to keep their home in the Mission District.Tickets
