Boots Just Wanna Have Fun
You may have figured out that Kinky Boots is a feel-good musical comedy, but did you know that this zany theatrical endeavor showcases the music of none other than '80s pop icon Cyndi Lauper? Though the play has won six Tony awards, you don't need to jet to Manhattan and spend a small fortune on a Broadway performance. You don't need to have a shoe fetish to enjoy this show either, but it certainly couldn't hurt. Whether you're in Fluevogs or Birkenstocks, strut your way over to Popejoy Hall for a she-boppin' good time. The show opens Thursday, March 7 and runs through Sunday, March 10. Tickets run $43 to $88. See popejoypresents.com/2018-2019-season/kinky-boots for times and tickets. (Constance Moss)
