"Kinky Boots," a six-time Tony Award-winning Broadway musical, makes a Jan. 31 stop in Ames on its national tour. Inspired by real events, the story features an unlikely friendship that saves a struggling family business with an outrageous idea -- all set to original music by pop star Cyndi Lauper.

The show is booked one night only with limited tickets available ($50-$70). Reservations are being accepted through Jan. 25 for a 6 p.m. themed dinner buffet ($32) in the Scheman Building before the 7:30 p.m. performance in Stephens Auditorium.
