Lulu's Golden Shoes

Lulu's Golden Shoes

:: by Quiara Alegría Hudes
:: directed by Brenna Geffers

July 15 - August 2

From the brilliant mind of Philly’s own Tony and Pulitzer-prize winning Quiara Alegría Hudes (In the Heights, Water by the Spoonful) comes a hilariously dark, comic book inspired satire, Lulu’s Golden Shoes. This coming-of-age story centers around a North Philly barrio girl named Ana who finds her feminine power through a blurred line of fantasy and mimicry of her neighbor, Rosie Lulu.
