KINKY BOOTS A BRITISH COMEDY-DRAMA
BASED ON A TRUE STORY COMING TO KRAVIS CENTER
In the town of Northampton, in the East Midlands of England, Charlie Price is attempting to save the family shoe factory, which has been floundering since his father died. While on a business trip to London to sell the company’s extra stock, Charlie encounters a woman being harassed by drunken hoodlums and intervenes to his determent.
He wakes up backstage, in the dressing room of Lola, a drag queen performer and alter ego. Charlie is intrigued when he sees that drag queens’ high heels snap easily, since they have only women’s shoes to wear, rather than those that can support the weight of a larger male body frame.
Back in Northampton, while in the process of laying off workers, one employee, Lauren, gives Charlie the idea of looking for a niche market product to save the business. Charlie then recruits Lauren to assist him in designing a high-heeled boot for drag performers.
Charlie forms an unlikely partnership with Lola, the drag queen, to save the business. He develops a plan to produce custom footwear for drag queens, rather than the men’s dress shoes that his firm is known for, and in the process, he and Lola discover that they are not so different after all. Find out whether these new plans will work successfully for Charlie on May 16, 2019 at 8 p.m. in the Raymond Dreyfoos Hall of the Kravis Center, located at 701 Okeechobee Blvd. W. Palm Beach. Ticket prices start at $29 and up, at the theatre’s box Office. For all additional information call 561-832-7469.
