Here at Grazia Daily, we're all about style *and* substance. So, when we heard about Shoes - the sure-to-be-amazing upcoming song and dance revue at Sadler’s Wells, which puts footwear in the spotlight - we were quivering with the sort of excitement usually reserved for Louboutin sample sales.
As you may have heard, Shoes is a 32-number show inspired by real women's shoe-based memories and naughty shoe-fessions. One piece explores our longing and desire for designer brands (yep, sounds like us). There’s a number celebrating the iconic Hollywood glamour of Salvatore Ferragamo, while another sees crash test dummies stumbling about as they learn to walk in high heels (and yes, we’ve been there too).
There are 250 pairs of shoes in the show, which stars 12 incredible dancers and four gut-wrenchingly brilliant singers. And this is no surface-level shoe-gasm: it comes from the terrifically talented, extremely funny Jerry Springer – The Opera composer and writer Richard Thomas, plus legendary British choreographer Stephen Mear. In this show, shoes are a metaphor for life – meaning guaranteed cultural brownie points (plus laughter and tears) all round.
In short, it’s our big cultural talking point for September. And – thanks to Grazia’s exclusive partnership with Sadler’s Wells – you can bag the best seats in the house for half price.
The offer (which – quick! – is only available until 16 August) allows Grazia’s readers to buy excellent seats for as little as £15 for performances on 3, 4 and 6 September. So book now, get excited, and dust off your most scene-stealing heels for a hilarious, glamorous night out.
