OTHER THURSDAY EVENTS
‘Kinky Boots’ — A story of acceptance is told through glitz and glam in “Kinky Boots,” the Tony Award-winning musical with a Grammy-winning score, written by Cyndi Lauper.

Rather than focus on drab, well-made and expensive men’s shoes, he fills a niche market after an unlikely friendship blossoms with a drag queen, Lola. The factory becomes a success at making flashy shoes for drag queens — specifically, boots that can hold a male’s weight. Read more about it here from PCD’s previous coverage.
