Musical: Kinky Boots

 Saturday February 28, Linda and Tom Hoffman and I saw the musical Kinky Boots at Dallas Fair Park Music Hall. Wow - what a production.  Based on a true story that had been a movie, Harvey Fierstein wrote the play book and Cyndi Lauper created the music and lyrics for a Broadway musical. Now the touring groups are kicking up their heels
 Here are a pair of signed boots from the Broadway show
 Here's our touring group. Picture courtesy of an email sent by the Dallas production. The premise is Charlie Price has to save his family's shoe factory. His new niche is stiletto boots for drag queens, et al. In working with Lola/Simon, the key theme is acceptance of a person, even yourself, without judgment or preordained thinking and presumptions. The factory is a family and has to work together too. All in all -  fabulous sets, catchy tunes, lovely voices, and the show makes you smile.
Linda and I in our very basic shoes. We've been friends for over thirty years!

  1. I'd bet Cindy Lauper could write some good songs for that!

  2. My days of wearing heels are long gone. We saw this play advertised here and weren't sure what it was about. Sounds great! I'm a minion for the A to Z Challenge and yours is one of the blogs on my list to say HI to! Can't wait to read your A to Z posts and it's great to meet you.

  3. I bet they had the boots for sale outside the venue after the show?

  5. We saw Kinky Boots a few years ago and loved it! It was a pre-Broadway production, and we were pleasantly surprised at how entertaining it was. I'm glad you also enjoyed it, Joanne!
