The moment we’ve all been waiting for has almost arrived! That’s right, Kinky Boots is back in the Quad Cities!

Preview Performances of six-time Tony Award Winner, Kinky Boots, will take place Wednesday Jan 15 and Thursday Jan 16 at Circa ’21 Dinner Playhouse (1828 3rd Avenue Rock Island. The show will then continue through Saturday Mar 14.

With songs by Grammy® and Tony® winning pop icon Cyndi Lauper, this joyous musical celebration is about the friendships we discover, and the belief that you can change the world when you change your mind. Inspired by true events, KINKY BOOTS takes you from a gentlemen’s shoe factory in Northampton to the glamorous catwalks of Milan.

Charlie Price has reluctantly inherited his father’s shoe factory, which is on the verge of bankruptcy. Trying to live up to his father’s legacy and save his family business, Charlie finds inspiration in the form of Lola. A fabulous drag queen in need of some sturdy stilettos, Lola turns out to be the one person who can help Charlie become the man that he is meant to be. As they work to turn the factory around, this unlikely pair find that they have more in common than they ever dreamed possible … and discover that, when you change your mind about someone, you can change your whole world.

With elaborate Broadway costumes, exhilarating choreography and a truly moving and powerful true story, Kinky Boots will have you discovering why, sometimes, the best way to fit in is to stand out.
