Kinky Boots

When: June 19-25, 8:15 p.m. 2019

Charlie inherits the family shoe factory, and with it the headaches of a changing market, the constant demand for lower prices and a resentful staff. A chance encounter with drag performer Lola makes Charlie realize that there's an untapped market for well-made women's footwear in men's sizes. His girlfriend, Nicola, would rather he shut down the factory and enter the lucrative world of real estate, but Charlie is starting to feel a sense of kinship with Lola; they're both sons who disappointed their fathers in different ways. The musical Kinky Boots deals with drag fashion and the father-son bond, with songs by pop music legend Cyndi Lauper and a book by Broadway legend Harvey Fierstein. The Muny presents Kinky Boots at 8:15 p.m. Wednesday through Tuesday (June 19 to 25) at the Muny in Forest Park (www.muny.org). Tickets are $15 to $105.
