Does a musical about acceptance, the unlikeliest of friends, and glamorous heels spark your interest? Well duh, of course it does! I mean, who the heck wouldn’t be interested? Listen up, you fellow kindred spirits, does the MSC have a show in store for you! Presenting “Kinky Boots,” a fun-filled musical inspired by the true events of a struggling shoemaker in Northampton. This BBC documentary, turned 2005 film, turned Broadway hit has been awarded every major best musical award. Nominated for 13 Tony Awards, this hit was directed and choreographed by two time Tony Award winner Jerry Mitchell, and is comprised of sixteen original songs written by Grammy and Tony-winning pop-icon Cyndi Lauper. Come celebrate “Kinky Boots’ ” four year anniversary on Broadway, with a performance that is filled with fun for everyone.

From a dingy gentlemen’s shoe factory, to the glamorous catwalks of Milan, this story takes you on the adventure of your life, as an unexpected pair, Charlie and Lola, embraces their differences and learns to work together. This production has been viewed by over 5 million people worldwide. Critically acclaimed, the cast was even accompanied briefly by Brandon Urie, lead singer of the hit band “Panic! at the Disco.”

Don’t even think about missing this treat when it showcases at the Rudder Auditorium for only two nights, later this very month! For just the short and sweet brief evenings of September 26 and September 27, “Kinky Boots” will be performed live, right here in College Station! This fun-filled musical, inspired by true events, is here to warm the hearts of all. Curtain is at 7:30 p.m., and, although the show is accompanied with strong language and mature themes, audiences of varying ages are welcomed to attend. All differing genders, beliefs, and sexualities are invited to join in on the excitement. So grab your kinky boots and come on out to support the arts, self-acceptance, and having a great taste in shoes!
