SATAN IN HIGH HEELS, a two-act staged workshop production of the 1960's comedic adaptation film, is the story of a cunning and ambitious carnival striptease dancer, Stacy Kane (Karen Stanion), who sleeps her way to the top in her sociopathic quest to become a Manhattan cabaret singer. While polishing up her musical act, Stacy engages in a series of sizzling affairs with lesbian nightclub manager Pepe, nightclub owner and shady businessman Arnold Kenyon, and Arnold's naïve college student son, Larry.
The play is written and produced by up and coming playwright Robbie Robertson. Robertson is a graduate of both the University of South Carolina and UCLA's professional program in screenwriting. Robertson's first play, MINA TONIGHT!, was published by Samuel French Inc. and has been produced by regional theatres across the nation. His latest screenplay, Sweet Child of Mine, was named one of the top 12 comedy scripts at the Austin Film Festival Screenwriting Competition and he is currently developing several film and television projects.
Mark Finley, director, is also the artistic director of TOSOS, New York City's oldest LGBT theatre company that was revived with founder Doric Wilson and Barry Childs. Finley has directed many of their productions including Wilson's OOBR winning revival of A PERFECT RELATIONSHIP and STREET THEATRE. He made his off-Broadway directorial debut with Chris Weikel's PENNY
PENNIWORTH and has directed for Emerging Artists Theatre, Abingdon Theatre, Naked Angels Lab, and The Neighborhood Playhouse among others. Finley is also a playwright, an actor and a graduate of the North Carolina School of the Arts and SDC member.
Karen Stanion, lead actor, was last seen at Provincetown Theatre in Cape Cod, where she won rave reviews for her "powerhouse" portrayal of Jane in Meryl Cohn's sold out hit Reasons to Live.
