One of the quiet pioneers of the civil rights movement, Medgar Evers' groundbreaking work in Mississippi for the NAACP helped set the tone for national leaders as they worked to bring down the Jim Crow system. "Behind the Cotton Curtain" is a new work that explores the life and legacy of this activist, who was assassinated in June 1963 before reaching the promised land of freedom. While people remember that Rosa sat down and Martin stood up, Medgar did the day-to-day work of pushing the civil rights envelope in a dangerous time, opening the doors for future generations.

Pop icon Cyndi Lauper made history as the first solo woman ever to receive the Tony for Best Score thanks to her contributions to Broadway's high-heeled hit, "Kinky Boots". The winner of six Tony Awards, including Best Musical, "Kinky Boots" tells the story (based on actual events) of Charlie Price, who has inherited his father's nearly bankrupt shoe factory. Trying to live up to his father's legacy and save his family business, Charlie finds inspiration in the form of Lola, a fabulous entertainer in need of some sturdy stilettos. As they work to turn the factory around, this unlikely pair finds that they have more in common than they ever dreamed possible. Along the way, Lola helps Charlie become the man he's meant to be. Featuring direction and Tony-winning choreography by Jerry Mitchell ("Legally Blonde", "Hairspray") and a spectacularly uplifting book by four-time Tony winner Harvey Fierstein ("La Cage aux Folles"), this red-hot musical smash has audiences dancing in the aisles. Join the celebration when "Kinky Boots" struts into the Music Hall at Fair Park. [less-]

Trendy Manhattan art gallery owners Barbara and David Kahn's lives are upended when Barbara's sister deposits their eccentric mother, Sophie, on the couple's doorstep so she and her husband can head to Buffalo to rescue their sexually precocious teenage daughter from a ménage à trois.
