The Red Shoes Ballet Opening Night

Stars Align for U.S. Premiere of Matthew Bourne’s “The Red Shoes” Ballet

 

Vanessa Hudgens, Minnie Driver, Michael Feinstein, Marisa Tomei, Angela Bassett, Adam Shankman, Suzanne Cryer and Sharon Lawrence were just a few of the dance aficionados streaming into the Ahmanson Theatre for the U.S. premiere of Matthew Bourne’s “The Red Shoes.”

“I’d go anywhere for Matthew Bourne. I’ll see everything and anything that he does,” said Driver about the choreographer famous for envisioning “Swan Lake” with fearsome male swans and “Sleeping Beauty” with vampires. “I feel New York usually gets the [premieres], and that’s why I’m so happy it is happening in Los Angeles.”
