The playhouse was jammed, which was heartening to see at this time of year. Amazing that so few players could put on such a great performance. Very entertaining, and the poignant ending was the kind that every mother can relate to.

The remarkable life of the legendary actress Ginger Rogers comes to life onstage! This intimate musical dances its way through Ginger’s life with unforgettable music, show-stopping dance numbers and a captivating story that chronicles her journey from hometown to Hollywood and from one love affair to another.

Funny, moving and a visual feast, Backwards In High Heels is a toe-tapping, swirling, gliding account of her ambitious public and private life.
Backwards In High Heels, conceived and developed by Lynette Barkley and Christopher McGovern and directed by Scott Schwartz, is based on the book, original songs and arrangements written by Christopher McGovern.
