Shoes and Baggage
About Shoes and Baggage
"Shoes and Baggage" is about the insatiable urge to purchase and possess beautiful things and the deeper feelings that propel this behavior. Broadway veteran actress and Jonathan Larson award-winning writer Cheryl Stern takes us on a wild, hilarious, and heartbreaking ride of hunting and spending as she digs deep to understand her own obsession with shopping.
From her escapades while in the cast of the star-studded Broadway revival of "The Women" to her stint as coach and host on The Home Shopping Network, Cheryl portrays over two dozen characters, illuminating a secret yet relatable world of retail enslavement.
"Shoes and Baggage" is a 75 minute solo odyssey, featuring an original score with lyrics by Cheryl and music by Drama Desk nominated and Emmy Award winning composer Tom Kochan. "Shoes and Baggage" was originally incubated at The Cell Theater.
