Theatrical Shoe Designer
Theatrical Shoe Designer Phil LaDuca worked as a Broadway dancer, choreographer and dance teacher before creating LaDuca dance shoes. He has created character shoes with the needed flexibility to be danceable, as well as the support and security for singers and actors. He works with costume designers, and handles the process from sketches through manufacturing in Italy to the finished products that end up on Broadway, national tours, and films. LaDuca shows how customized shoes are created for actresses such as Kristin Chenoweth in “Promises, Promises” and Bebe Neuwirth in “The Addams Family.”
This edition of In The Wings was made possible by the generous support of Christopher Weaver.
