The Ridgefield Playhouse is bringing musical theater to the big screen in HD July 2 and 18, part of the Northern Trust Broadway & Cabaret Series with support from Teed & Brown.
Kinky Boots — The Musical in HD returns Thursday, July 2, at 7:30 p.m. after a sold out screening in 2019. Winner of six Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Kinky Boots features a Tony-winning score by Cyndi Lauper and a book by four-time Tony winner and Ridgefield’s own, Harvey Fierstein. A member of The Ridgefield Playhouse Arts Advisory Board, Fierstein was inspired by the little-seen 2005 movie of the same title, which was based on actual events. His meeting with Cyndi Lauper after her 2010 performance at The Playhouse spawned this show about finding your passion, overcoming prejudice and transcending stereotypes.
