What is Kinky Boots The Musical About
What happens when you combine Harvey Fierstein with Cindy Lauper? A giant pair of red sequin and sexy Kinky Boots the Musical! Kinky boots on broadway is a super-fabulous telling of what really makes a man, even if he is all decked out in thigh-high bedazzled, red sequined boots.
Directed by Jerry Mitchell, “Kinky Boots the musical” is an adaptation of the book by Harvey Fierstein. It’s the story of a young man named Charlie who is forced to follow in his father’s footsteps by taking over the family’s failing shoe business. Eventually he goes looking for help and when he finds a “woman” who is being attacked, instead of helping her, it turns out she helps him. (more…)
Last night I went to the Kennedy Center to see The Lion King the Musical touring cast. I’m breaking this review up into two parts. This first part is what you’re expecting to hear and the second part is a different take on it because I just saw Sideshow the musical which was amazing!
The Lion King the Musical touring cast was exactly what you’d expect. Disney level talent, amazing costumes, really cool sets and people that impersonate the characters voices that can also act very well. The dancing was great, they dance through the aisles and use amazing props and brought the movie to life. Disney has the money to do this so they do and it’s like watching the movie or a show at one of their theme parks. Talented people that sound like the characters, bright colors and great music. It’s great for kids, fun for adults and if you like the movie you’ll like the show. Now read below for my other opinion on The Lion King the Musical Touring Cast at the Kennedy Center.
I normally don’t like drag shows much so when they come on I leave. However, when we were at the Blue Moon in Rehoboth Beach the other day and the show was coming on, they announced it was performers and the first one was from Broadway. At that point I pushed past my panic attack from the crowded room and when she started performing I forgot that the drag shows at the Blue Moon aren’t your normal show. Instead they are talented performers that actually perform. This first performer did an amazing montage of showtunes from Dream Girls. I unfortunately turned off my camera before she got to the big number, but you’ll love the first few songs.
Yesterday I went to see Side Show the Musical at the Kennedy Center and wasn’t sure what to expect. The old reviews of Side Show the Musical were amazing, but in this version they added new music, made it darker and it’s a new cast so it could have completely flopped. Unlike most of the reviews I do, with Side Show the Musical at the Kennedy Center, this show is a 5 out of 5!
Not a single cast member was bad, the lighting, costuming, sound, acting and music were amazing and everything went perfect. I cried, laughed and absolutely fell in love with the new version of the show.

If you’ve been on a Frozen kick like the rest of the world…especially if you have kids or gay friends, you’re probably thinking that Frozen is actually more of a horror movie. You’re tired of parodies, tired of Moms and Dads making fun of it and if you are a parent or have theatre queen friends, hearing it sung really off key. I’m tired of all of the parodies as well, but definitely not tired of singing the showtunes from Frozen. With that being said, I did find this randomly this morning and wanted to share. It’s the Disney’s Frozen Horror Movie Trailer. Be warned!
