“Remember, Ginger Rogers did everything that Fred Astaire did, backwards and on high heels”
I have a fascination with shoes. All kinds of shoes. Particularly with high heels. Apparently, I'm not the only one with this fetish. They have dedicated a site for high heels, stilettos and other pumps at The High Heel Shoe Museum. I didn't realize this even existed until I stumbled upon it one evening.
I think I went into sensory overload when I first discovered DSW Shoes in Carousel Mall! I've since learned to temper my addiction! The fact that DSW had also moved into a smaller space (read: less shoes) had helped too.
So, How do you combine two of my favorite loves......Shoes and the Theatre???
Spike Heels! That's how!
And what do 10 Professional people who I spent the evening with, all have in common for this Thursday night??
Again... Spike Heels...... the show!
It was definitely an evening of Estrogen, as the audience was 99.7% Women!! ;)
What was neat was being a part of these 10 professional people, ranging from other Social Workers, a Lab Technician, R.N.s and even a rather spunky psychiatrist who is a very well respected person in our community. I kinda giggled as there was also one male among us, and I know he was thoroughly enjoying himself. I think he was chomping at the bit to tell his fellow workers what it was like to spend an evening with 9 hot women!! ;) I believe I was the 'baby' of the group, and that felt odd to me to know that.
Prior to the show, there was a special reception specifically for this show, and held at the Genesee Hotel. Appetizers of Spanakopita, assorted cheese, veggies, and dips, Huge Shrimp cocktail, Chicken Saute with a wonderful peanut sauce, miniature spring rolls and even Chocolate-covered Strawberries! Apparently there was supposed to be Beef Wellington, but that seemed to be MIA.
It's times like this where I wished I had owned a digital camera! It would be soooo much easier to post some of the pictures. We got a shot of all our spike heels together and then a head shot. The goal??? Match the sexy stilettos to the hot babe wearing them! We made sure that even the gentleman with us was still a part of both pics!
The show was wonderful!! Lots of dynamics, both positive and negative, between the sexes. I applaud them. The lead character, Gorgie, had spunk, and even though there were F-Bombs dropped every 3 minutes, (not for the faint hearted) it was put together quite nicely. The show dealt with sexual harassment, hidden agendas, love triangles, and issues of control. There were only four characters for the whole play, and Gorgie definitely had the 'floor'.
I want her shoes! ;)
It is being advertised as: "A witty, compelling and very tart comedy plunging headfirst into the complexities of contemporary adult romance. Even smart people are not so smart when it comes to love."
There's three more days left till this is over. If interested, check it out. A good show! Just make sure to find your highest spike heels!
