LIMA — “Kinky Boots” will soon be on stage in Lima.

“It’s been extremely successful, it’s still in New York and it still sells out in New York,” said Abe Ambroza, CEO of Veterans Memorial Civic Center. “The touring show has been in every big market you can think of, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Seattle, San Francisco. This is the premier touring version of ‘Kinky Boots.’ It’s not like they have an A, B and a C. We have the number one. Most of their stops have been multi-night stops. Lima is very lucky for this show, to have this. We are very fortunate to just get them to spend one night here. They don’t typically do that.”

The show is based on a movie from 2005. It’s inspired by true events about a man who inherits a failing shoe factory from his late father. He had attempted to leave the family business but ultimately refocuses it to manufacture quality boots for drag queens. The show’s themes are of friendship and relationships that grow after looking past certain qualities in others. People have much more in common than they initially think they do.

“It’s a really funny, fun energetic show. The music is by Cyndi Lauper, so we know about her talent and creativity for sure,” said Ambroza.

The musical is sponsored by Maria Sanko and Real Living CCR Realtors.
