TODAY’S FARM MARKET. WELCOME BACK EVERYBODY, A SMASH HIT MUSICAL NOW PLAYING AT THE THEATER. SHOE LOVERS, SOMETHING TELLS ME YOU’LL LIKE THIS ONE. WE ARE SO LUCKY TO HAVE TWO OF THE PERFORMERS OF THE SHOW WITH US THIS AFTERNOON. KINKY BOOTS. THE STORY BEHIND THESE BOOTS? THESE ARE TWO FEET OF CUSTOM — THIS IS THE BOOT THAT SAVED THE FACTORY. WELL, TELL US A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THE STORY SO WE CAN UNDERSTAND THE IMPORTANCE OF THESE BOOTS. WELL, IT’S A STORY OF CHARLIE PRICE, WHO STEVEN PLAYS AND HE INHERITS HIS FATHER’S FAILING SHOE FACTORY AND FIRES EVERYBODY BUT MEETS A DRAG QUEEN WHO HAS BROKEN HIS HIGH SCHOOL AND HAS AN AHA MOMENT. HE SAVES THE FACTORY AND SAVES YOUR CHARACTER ACTUALLY HAS THE — I’M VERY IMPORTANT. YOU ARE SO IMPORTANT. MY CHARACTER IS LAUREN, I CHALLENGE HIM TO KIND OF THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX AND FIND A NICHE MARKET, AND WE START MAKING KINKY BOOTS AND THEY BECOME — HE AND LOLA BECOME SORT OF UNLIKELY FRIENDS AND UNLIKELY BUSINESS PARTNERS. THIS IS QUITE THE STORYLINE. THESE DRAG QUEENS AND FACTORY WORKERS COME TOGETHER AND THEY, YOU KNOW — IT’S A GREAT, GREAT SHOW WITH ALL SORTS OF MESSAGES. FATHER/SON THEMES. ACCEPTANCE AND, YOU KNOW, BEING WHO YOU WANT TO BE. AND BOTH OF YOU DO GET TO WEAR BOOTS LIKE THESE IN THE SHOW. WE DO. WE ALL DO. IT’S SO FUN. THERE THEY ARE. THEY’RE THE MOST COMFORTABLE HEELS BECAUSE THEY’RE CUSTOM-MADE FOR OUR FEET, PERFECTLY FITTED TO US. HOW FUN ARE THE COSTUMES? THE BOYS GET THE BEST COSTUMES. LOOK AT THOSE. THAT’S NOT FAIR. THE GLORY USUALLY GOES TO THE GIRLS SO IT’S OKAY FOR THE BOYS TO HAVE IT IN ONE SHOW. DO YOU HAVE A FAVORITE ACT, A FAVORITE MOMENT THAT PEOPLE SHOULD LOOK FOR? MY FAVORITE MOMENT IN THE SHOW IS BETWEEN CHARLIE AND LOLA AND THEY’RE TALKING ABOUT FEELING LIKE THEY’RE NOT LIVING UP TO THEIR FATHER’S EXPECTATIONS. IT’S A SONG CALLED “NOT MY FATHER’S SON”. THE SCENE AND THE SONG IS SO GOOD AND THEY’RE SO GREAT. THERE’S A LOT OF HEART TO THE SHOW. OBVIOUSLY IT’S SPECTACULAR AND IT’S GOT THESE BOOTS AND COSTUMES, BUT THAT IS KIND OF THE MOMENT THAT BRINGS IT DOWN AND MAKES — ANCHORS THE HEART. FOR SURE. DEBUTED LAST NIGHT SO HOW DID EVERYTHING GO? IT WAS A GREAT, GREAT CROWD. GREAT REACTIONS. THEY WERE UP ON THEIR FEET BEFORE WE EVEN PUT THE CURTAIN SO THIS WEEKEND, EVERYBODY HAS A CHANCE.
