4 Things I Learned After Viewing Kinky Boots

On Dec. 7 I saw Kinky Boots at the SHN Orpheum Theatre in San Francisco. Words cannot describe how extraordinary it is. It plays through Dec. 28. Here are four things I learned from viewing Kinky Boots:

1. It is based on a true story and a film that came out in 2005.

2. Cyndi Lauper is the first woman to win an individual Tony for writing a score to a musical.

3. The character of Lola was based on Sylvester.

4. Harvey Fierstein and Cyndi Lauper have a six-step program of happiness based on a speech that Harvey gave:

  1. Pursue the truth.
  2. Learn something new.
  3. Accept yourself and you'll accept others.
  4. Let love shine.
  5. Let pride be your guide.
  6. You'll change the world when you change your mind.

Peace, love, compassion and blessings.
