Imelda Marcos's Life And Fashion Hit The Stage With New Musical

Posted: Updated:

Former Philippines First Lady Imelda Marcos was said to once have had 15 mink coats, 508 gowns, 1,000 handbags and 3,000 pairs of shoes...so why shouldn't she have her own musical, too? Now she does: "Imelda, A New Musical" just opened at Manhattan's Julia Miles Theatre. The oeuvre documents Imelda's evolution from the 1940s to the 1980s, beginning with Philippine Independence and ending with her ousting. Act 1 even contains a song called "3,000 Pairs of Shoes."

Curious about what to expect onstage? Check out some of Imelda's looks:
