Podcast: The return of SATAN IN HIGH HEELS

The two Pepes: Grayson Hall, left, and Virginia Baeta.
SATAN IN HIGH HEELS is a 1962 sexploitation film that follows the misadventures of a carnival burlesque dancer who sleeps her way to New York after robbing her junkie ex-husband. Think of it as the grandmother of SHOWGIRLS, only with a bit more class.

It’s hard to say where the film falls on the barometer of cult movies, though. It doesn’t really have the following needed for certified cult status like THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW or PINK FLAMINGOS. But, that following is definitely there, thanks primarily to the movie’s score, and the disproportionately good performances delivered by leads Meg Myles and Grayson Hall.

A new stage adaption of the film debuts Oct. 30 at the Dixon Place in New York City. The remainder of the run will be Nov. 1-3 at TheaterLab NYC, a 75-seat boutique theatre on West 36th Street. For more information on the production, visit Broadway World.

Oddly enough, the writer and producer of the show, Robbie Robertson, lives here in my hometown of Columbia, S.C.  I spoke with him earlier this week about his previous experiences with bringing SATAN IN HIGH HEELS to the stage, the upcoming production in New York City and, of course, DARK SHADOWS. (Note: Larry Hembree, the managing director of Trustus Theater, makes a cameo appearance in this podcast.)
