Teddy Shoes is a 2nd generation family-owned business that opened in April of 1957 by Theodore Adelson. It is located at 548 Massachusetts Avenue, right in the heart of Central Square. The store began selling family footwear and factory seconds and cancellations from many of the local shoe factories. As the business became profitable, the owner Teddy opened up locations in Watertown and Somerville and later on in East Boston. The current owner and son Steven Adelson came on board in August of 1978 and is still running the business. In 1993, the nature of the business began to change from a family shoe store to a dance shop. Steve shifted his focus from the seconds and closeouts into dance shoes and apparel for ballet, flamenco, jazz, salsa, tap and tango just to name a few. The store still carries a full stock of family footwear, hats, hosiery and large sizes but also has become a destination location for the greater Boston dance community. The store has a huge inventory, offers great customer service and is open daily. It has its own website, http://www.teddyshoes.com and also has a social media presence on its own blog, Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. Next year, Teddy Shoes will celebrate its 60th Birthday and continues to be a proud merchant of Central Square Cambridge.
Eastern Bank and the City of Cambridge will be hosting an event in honor of Small Business Week. Owner Steven Adelson will be given a proclamation for all of his efforts as a successful business owner in Central Square Cambridge. Mayor E. Denise Simmons will be presenting this honor on Thursday May 5 at the Meridien Hotel in Cambridge.

Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812
December 6, 2015 – January 3, 2016
Natasha is young, Anatole is hot, and Andrey isn’t here…But what about Pierre? Based on a scandalous 70-page slice of War and Peace, this electropop opera (from the musical mind of Dave Malloy who brought Three Pianos, Ghost Quartet, and Beowulf: A Thousand Years of Baggage to A.R.T.) is Tolstoy like you’ve never experienced him before. Step into a glamorous, romantic world of chandeliers, vodka and caviar in the salons and opera houses of 19th century Moscow, where passions ignite as Napoleon’s war rages outside the city. This new musical brings to life the heart of literature’s most epic tale of love and fate.
