It's Kinky Boots Time in Denver

In October, the Buell Theatre in Denver will be showcasing the regional debut of the Broadway smash, Kinky Boots. This joyful musical is based on the film of the same name -- and both explore the themes of diversity and open-minded compassion for our differences as human beings. Also, it's about high heels.

To wrap up our film series, He's a Lady: A Brief History of Male Drag, Denver Public Library will be presenting the original film version of Kinky Boots this Tuesday. Hope you can join us for the ebullient British comedy. Free and open to the public.

Kinky Boots (2005)
Tuesday, June 24, 6:30-9 p.m.
Central Library, Level B2 Conference Center

Directed by Julian Jarrold. Starring Chiwetel Ejiofor, Joel Edgerton.
This wonderful film inspired the hit Broadway musical that will be touring through Denver this fall. See how it all got started in this classic, age-old story of boy meets drag queen, boy makes fabulous boots and shoes for drag queen, and then drag queen teaches boy how to be a better, more open-minded person. Based on a true story, it is really a morality tale about how each of us has things to learn and things to teach. And sometimes the only way you can seek higher truths is by putting on a pair of six-inch stilettos. 107 minutes. Rated PG-13.

Watch the trailer and then just try to stay away from our film night on Tuesday. Wear your high heels!
