Have you seen Kinky Boots yet? Maybe not - it's only been on Broadway for 5 years, and it's already a global sensation. This musical, which has a rich history, started out as a BBC documentary based on a real story. A long and winding road led to a movie, and then this Broadway smash musical. It's an important story of history, family, friends, and finding and staying true to yourself. Kinky Boots is on tour - get your tickets, as this is a show worth seeing.

Have you seen RENT yet? It is hard to imagine that this Broadway show is 20 years old, but time flies. We went to see it last night at Miller Auditorium at Western Michigan University - and were blown away by the talent, story, and music. The actors? Incredible. The band? Likewise. Each actor stayed true to the original, while somehow making it modern for today. My favorite character? Angel!
