Unless you're of a certain age, you may not get the reference in the Historic Everett Theatre's production Sunday: "A Really Big Shoe."
It's a revue, a variety of acts, much like the long-running TV show of the '50s and '60s, "The Ed Sullivan Show." Ed was well-known for his poker-faced introductions on the live broadcast as he promised viewers "a really big shew (show)."
Historic Everett's version includes opera singer Tony Stella, Louie Foxx's one-man sideshow, the rock trio The Unknown, country artist Marcia Kester, magician Shawn O'Donnell, the Linesmen and For Peace Bandits.
The show begins at 2:30 p.m. It's a benefit for the theater and tickets are $10 to $12. Children under 5 are admitted free.
Buy tickets online at brownpapertickets.com, at the box office or by calling 425-258-6766.
The theater is at 2911 Colby Ave., Everett.
