BWW Feature: LASHES OFF: AN AFTER-HOURS BENEFIT CONCERT at Round Up Saloon
After their performance on Wednesday, April 5th, the national touring cast of KINKY BOOTS will appear at Oak Lawn's Round Up Saloon for LASHES OFF: AN AFTER-HOURS BENEFIT CONCERT. The evening will benefit True Colors Fund, which was co-founded by KINKY BOOTS songwriter Cyndi Lauper to help end LGBTQ youth homelessness.
This performance is a part of the commitment the cast has made to join The Ghostlight Project, whose mission is "... to be a resource for theaters, arts communities, and individuals to identify and create meaningful action steps, or to continue in the social justice work already underway."
