The target audience of The Foo Fah Show that I saw that afternoon at noon were children between 4 and 8 and their parents. Expect to participate a lot in Marc Spiegel’s narration of various stories by making noises, mimicking dinosaurs and singing songs.
The ten people audience was sitting on the stage with the narrator and the keyboardist. There was nothing else except a sign board with the names of the stories: “Foo Fah”, She Bop Sha-Boop”, “Some people call me a villain”, etc. The keyboardist Kevin Alexander did a great job of sprinkling the stories with amusing musical cues..
Overall, this performance appeared to be under-rehearsed, but the magical stories were entertaining and kids and parents seemed to have fun. If you have young children or if you have a heart of a child yourself, you will probably appreciate The Foo Fah Show.
Running time: 65 minutes.
The Foo Fah Show information and tickets
***From the producers of The Foo Fah Show:
“We would like to clarify that the shows that are scheduled for 8:15PM, 9:00PM and 10:00PM are NOT targeted for 4-8 year old children. We are planning to be flexible with the 5:45PM show – if there are kids in the audience, we will be happy to do another family show. If it is all adults, we will do the “grown up” version of the show.
The grownup shows will still include audience participation, and some of the segments will be the same, however, other material will be a bit more raucous for the grownups (we would never ask a 4-year-old to chant “up yours!”) and dinosaur hand puppets will not be featured.”
