OPENING PERFORMANCE: Kinky Boots

IU Auditorium will proudly present the highly-acclaimed Broadway musical Kinky Boots on October 24 and 25, 2017, and will create unique opportunities for community members to interact with the cast. Through music and lyrics by Cyndi Lauper, Kinky Boots tells the story of an unlikely collaboration between a struggling factory owner and a remarkable entertainer who are forced to embrace their differences. To create a robust dialogue on the themes of gender identity and cross-cultural collaborations addressed in the show, Kinky Boots cast members will hold a panel discussion while visiting the IU Bloomington campus. Additionally, an Indiana University faculty-led, interactive workshop on gender identity, terminology, and relationships within the context of the gender spectrum will further connect themes portrayed in the production. With support from Themester 2017 at the College of Arts and Sciences, the panel discussion and interactive workshop will be free and open to the public, and a limited number of student tickets will be issued to program participants.
