During this time of social distancing, we're trying something new at MAX:
We're going to create a virtual shared theatrical experience!
For this first event, join co-champions Bruce Cecil and Michael Meehan online on Tuesday April 7th, from 7:00pm to 8:30pm, to discuss Kinky Boots.
Kinky Boots is a Tony Award, Grammy Award, and Oliver Award-winning hit musical from pop icon Cyndi Lauper and legendary playwright Harvey Fierstein.
Kinky Boots tells the story of two men who could not follow in their father's footsteps: Charlie, a factory owner struggling to save his family shoe business, and Lola, a powerhouse drag performer whose stiletto heels keep breaking. With a little compassion and a lot of understanding, this unexpected pair learn to embrace their differences, build a friendship, and create a line of sturdy stilettos unlike any the world has ever seen!
Read the New York Times review of the Broadway production here.
Kinky Boots is available online from BroadwayHD. BroadwayHD offers a seven-day free trial, after which the charge is $8.99/month.
