by Tricity Vogue and Richard Link
“I hate musicals – I LOVED this one!” Steve May, Audience Member
Vogue and Link’s fabulous show returns to Chelsea Theatre for a three week run as part of London’s 2016 Pride Festival, after selling out at Chelsea in January 2015, and showcasing its songs to thousands on the Pride Cabaret Stage in June 2015.

Heels of Glory is an original musical written by Tricity Vogue and composed by Richard Link, with an action adventure plot, lavish portions of comedy and glamour, and memorable tunes that could have graced a vintage Bond movie — if they’d ever got 007 in drag.
A young drag queen (Matthew Floyd Jones) and her tomboy best friend are all that stand in the way of arch villainess Allura Supreme (Sarah-Louise Young) and her evil plan to annihilate every drag queen in the world. International superstar Splendorella (Topsie Redfern) is set to launch Supreme’s deadly new cosmetic at midnight. Will our heroes be in time to save the drag world?
Director Stephen Heatley returns to lead the all-star cast on this glittering adventure.
“A supreme sure fire hit!” Teri Reed, Audience Member
‘Grabs your attention as soon as you enter the theatre… As a way to really get into the Pride Season, Heels of Glory cannot be beaten and should be on everyone’s calendar to experience as soon as possible.’ ★★★★★ LondonTheatre
‘Splendorella isn’t just splendid looking is all her glittering refinery, but she has a voice that could match any west-end leading lady and a presence that is both commanding and endearing.’ ★★★★ Thomas Magill for British Theatre Guide
‘Imagine a musical mix of James Bond, panto and Eurovision, done incredibly well and with real heart, and you will have some idea of what Heels of Glory has to offer. Although full of clichés and innuendo, the show is truly original and the perfect antidote to a bad day out in the real world. We sang Don’t Let Them Drag You Down all the way home.’ ★★★★ Everything Theatre
