A Shoe Story - The Long Center

Brian Corkum had the chance to originate the role of "Ben" in A Shoe Story. A Shoe Story is a pop/rock musical for all ages about the power of unity in times of need. Brian Corkum was recently nominated by the B. Iden Payne Awards Council for "Outstanding Actor in a Youth Production" for his role as "Ben." 

Allen Robertson, best known as "Buford Biscuit" on the two-time Emmy Award winning PBS show The Biscuit Brothers, wrote, composed, and directed A Shoe Story. Allen's passion for A Shoe Story was deeply rooted in the material. Allen created a rehearsal space which included wonderful collaboration between the creators, designers, and actors. Brian really enjoyed bringing Allen's vision to life.
