“Shoes” at Sadlers Wells
February 8th 2011 – April 3rd 2011
Got an obsession with shoes? Then join hundreds of like-minded ‘shoe addicts’ and head on down to Sadler Wells to witness its extraordinary shoe show. The show will involve some stunning visual performances, including dance, music and theatre, in a fascinating exploration of shoes and society’s contemporary fixation with them.
From everyday loafers, to the height of shoe exquisiteness, red-heeled Louboutin’s, this unique multi-faceted artistic display has been written by Stephen Mear and Richard Thomas, and is Thomas’s first large scale production since the immensely popular Jerry Springer – The Opera.
Shoes promises to be as equally as hilarious as the Jerry Springer musical, but will combine some seriously stunning choreography and some of the most stylish shoes in the world of fashion. By ingeniously combining theatre, dance, music, fashion and comedy, ‘Shoes’ will cater for a wide spectrum of spectators.
Staged at Sadler Well’s Peacock Theatre, the show dons a cast of four singers, twelve dancers, a live band and several special films created by Tim Hope, who is better known for his work with REM and Coldplay.
Longing for warmer weather, lighter nights and something to celebrate, the period between Christmas and Easter can be long and laborious. If you want to lift those late-winter blues, then a visit to, as The Independent put it, “a shiny, exuberant, consciously naughty and high-spirited night out”, may be just what the doctor ordered.
To celebrate one of the greatest passions of the modern age book a ticket, but hurry! Tickets for such vivacious entertainment, with an eight-week limited run, won’t last forever. (Tickets range from £15 -£49.50)
