We loved it. Intimate. Very well done. We were walking past the theater and decided to see if seated were available. The Ted Shoes. Funny, creative,movie no. All the seats are great. The performance was very well done. A good time was had by all.

Went to see the current Gate adaptation of “the red shoes”. Every part of this production is impressive with some amazing dancing, and really witty comedy. Get out and see it while it’s still showing, it’s a perfect, but slightly quirky Christmas show.

If you are looking for something special to do on a Sunday (or the other days of this show) between now and mid September, this production is a must see. It is great fun and one of those experiences that is too difficult to explain...More
