Date: March 2 (Friday) – 18 (Sunday)
Venue: Carlos P. Romulo Auditorium, RCBC Plaza, Makati City

Atlantis Theatrical’s staging of the Broadway hit Kinky Boots is back for a limited time this month after its initial run last year.

For this not familiar with the play, it is based on a film and tells that story of a man who inherits a struggling shoe factory and a drag queen who helps him create a line of high-heeled boots, with music by Cyndi Lauper.

It’s an upbeat and fun (also funny) show perfect for lifting your spirits during the weekend.
