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?
