A night at the theater

Saw Cyndi Lauper's Kinky Boots last night. It tries so hard to be shocking but really, it's a very old-fashioned Broadway show (though this was it's preview engagement before The Great White Way).

So while the plot is predictable, the cast and Cyndi's score have a lot of heart. And the lead, Stark Sands, has an awesome voice. It's a rather drab part as written -- he's a working class lad playing opposite a flamboyant drag queen -- but he transcends it.

A star is born!

  1. I'm very excited to see this. It's been hyped up pretty good but I don't know anyone, until now that's seen it. I'm glad to know you liked it. Have you seen Book of Mormon?

Sorry about adding Comment Moderation, folks. But look at the bright side, at least I've gotten rid of word verification!
