Kinky Boots the Musical 

When: Sat., Jan. 13, 3 & 8 p.m. and Sun., Jan. 14, 3 p.m. 2018
Price: $30-$82
If you had to build a creative team to write a musical about accepting people who are different, fabulous shoes and the transformative power incarnated in drag performers, you'd be hard pressed to better the one-two punch of Cyndi Lauper and Harvey Fierstein. The duo crafted the musical adaptation of the film Kinky Boots, packing it with big, brassy songs and a warm heart. Charlie is a would-be real estate agent who inherits the family shoe-manufacturing business, only to discover that the company is failing. A chance encounter with drag performer Lola helps him realize that a shift to high-quality fetish boots for drag queens might save the factory. But first the employees have to rethink the production line — and learn to work closely with Lola and her friends without sniggering or making cruel comments. Kinky Boots the Musical plays the Peabody Opera House (1400 Market Street; www.peabodyoperahouse.com) at 3 and 8 p.m. Saturday and 1:30 p.m. Sunday (January 13 and 14). Tickets are $30 to $82.
