This musical is conceived, directed and choreographed by Maurice Hines, star of stage, screen and television and a member of the
famous act Hines, Hines & Dad. It will feature such Earth, Wind & Fire hits as “After the Love Is Gone,” “Boogie Wonderland,” “Shining Star,” and “September,” along with six new songs composed by the group’s founder, Maurice White. Just thinking about the lineup is enough to give fans a warm, nostalgic feeling in anticipation of a good time.
The book for the musical was written by Jamaican-born hip-hop novelist and MTV Books author Heru Ptah. Hot Feet is presented by TransAmerica and produced by Rudy Durand in association with Kalimba Entertainment. The storyline is an adaptation of The Red Shoes, a fairy tale by the 19th century Danish author Hans Christian Andersen. The play itself is a story of believing in one’s dreams and ambitions and of pursuing those dreams and ambitions with self-sacrifice and discipline. It explores the underbelly of the back stages of Broadway, with their dreamers and dream makers.
