Kinky Boots

It’s a good thing I was born a girl,

otherwise I’d be a drag queen.

What’s not to love about a Broadway show saved by the glamour of drag? Especially since drag queens live and breathe the power of fighting for one’s passion, overcoming prejudice and transcending stereotypes.

Based on a little seen movie from 2005, with music and lyrics by Cyndi Lauper, Kinky Boots is about a bloke named Charlie who inherits his father’s outdated shoe factory.   He finds inspiration in Lola, a drag queen, who loves to dress up but could never find heels to hold her manly weight.  Their collaboration to develop fetishwear that captures this market niche saves his factory from the depths of red–in finances and frumpy style.

Harvey Feirstein who writes the book version says his interest in Kinky Boots is the question “What is a man?”   Swishy Lola and seriously straight Charlie may be the unlikeliest of friends, yet life dealt them similar cards, parental expectations inflicting shared wounds.  Is it any less difficult to forgive others as ourselves?  Feirstein recommends drag as the best mask for all:  “When I take it off, nobody knows who I am.  When I put it on, I can be anyone I want.”
