VIDEO: These Boots Are Walkin’ in KC
A pair of official “kinky boots” arrived at Starlight Theatre in advance of the show, and they soon took a walking tour of Kansas City landmarks and highlights. The sturdy, sparkly, thigh-high red stilettos caught the eye of Kansas City locals and visitors as they made their way around town Sept. 27.
On a stop atop the National World War I Museum and Memorial, the site of the boots and their wearer (John Parker, Starlight’s education assistant) thrilled a group of ladies from Illinois on a girls’ getaway. They just had to get a photo to commemorate the high-heeled fun!
Of course, the boots also had to check out the J.C. Nichols Fountain on the Plaza, the shuttlecocks on the lawn of the Nelson, hop a ride on the streetcar, make a quick stop at The K and Arrowhead, and more. BBQ, unfortunately, will have to wait for another day.
And, then, walk your own boots out to Starlight for 2013’s Tony Award-winning Best Musical, Kinky Boots. The national tour is in town for just three performances Sept. 29-Oct. 1. Shows start at 8 p.m.
