Mayor Ralph’s dream comes true.
Cyndi Lauper and Harvey Fierstein’s musical Kinky Boots could be a metaphor for former Mayor Ralph Becker’s struggle to build the Eccles Theater. To save a shoe business from bankruptcy, Kinky Boots’ naive hero brings in Lola, a cabaret performer and shoe freak, to create outrageous high-heeled boots. If you can’t see Ralph, his Tony Award-winning brother Bill and our ever-struggling downtown Salt Lake in that plot—just throw in a few bike lanes. Jan.17-22. artsaltlake.org
