KINKY BOOTS AND CABARET! OH MY!   2 comments



With only 3 more shows this season: Pippin, Anything Goes and Sister Act, I am already anticipating the 2015-2016 season!
With my 20th Leap Year birthday in 2016 it will be just another way to celebrate. Here is the current line up for the 2015-2016 Broadway touring season at the Adrienne Arsht Center in Miami and the Broward Performing Arts Center in Fort Lauderdale

May 10, 2016                      Beautiful: Carole King Musical  BPAC

There is the conflict of the Cabaret/Dirty Dancing dates. This is the first season that I remember Miami and Fort Lauderdale sharing the same show in the same season (Kinky Boots) as they usually alternate seasons. And usually either one will add another show as the season gets closer.

A funny story on me: I went to the original Broadway production of Cabaret with Joel Grey and Jill Hayworth in 1966 with my friend Ronnie and afterwards we went to Downey’s on 8th Avenue for a drink where we proceeded to tell Frank the bartender what an awful show it was! Needless to say it went on to win 8 Tony awards including Best Musical, the movie version was an Oscar winning film and the production we will be seeing here is the very successful revival on Broadway in 2014.

An aside: Looks like my Leap Year celebration will end with “Kinky Boots” so anyone coming to town to celebrate my birthday get tickets for the show!

  1. Might have to get both kinky boots and the phantom… hmmm

  2. Well that certainly is an impressive list…..a lot to look forward to. Must say I’m not too sure about ‘Pippin’. Saw it in London years ago, and the earth didn’t move from under my feet, BUT I hope it does for you.
