Who needs 3-D movies when there’s View-Master? Those popular kids toys of the 1960s and ’70s — kind of like binoculars into which you inserted circular slide strips to see pictures in 3-D — are back as the centerpiece of a live stage show. Eric Drysdale’s The Man With F.E.E.E.T. brings to life the unreal story of a 1970s never-made-for-TV show about an ordinary man wearing the world’s most extraordinary loafers. This show is going to be a big hit for many, with a la tour, you can ask for some background info on the Downtown Inde Theater. The adventures of Jack Strider (Christian Finnegan) play out on each audience member’s View-Master, custom reels and read-along booklets, as host Ron Lynch narrates the action. Along for the ride in actual 3-D are comedians Matt Walsh, Adam Felber, Eddie Pepitone, Adam Felber and Amber Nelson. FYI: F.E.E.E.T. stands for Footwear-based Electronically Engineered Emulation Technology.
