How do you gain power and yet lose your own power? Through the power of The Red Sneaks, an urban musical retelling of the classic tale, the Red Shoes. The age-old story of a girl selling her soul for dancing shoes is given a new twist in post-Katrina New Orleans. Originally written in 1989, Elizabeth Swados used the story as a metaphor for the destructive aspects of power at that time in the Bronx. The all-teen cast from NORD Crescent City Lights, all too familiar with the force and aftermath of power and destruction by both nature and man. The Red Sneaks transports you to a world where youth has no value unless you have the ‘power' of The Red Sneaks. Featuring Tyler Chetta, Diamond Butler,and Harold Jenkins
