9.4.16 Had a lovely lunch on Saturday at Buca di Beppo before we headed to see the musical "Kinky Boots" .....it was fantastic! Marcia V.
It was a picture perfect day when we headed to Chicago to see the musical "Kinky Boots". We first stopped for lunch at Buca di Beppo - wonderful food with a very entertaining atmosphere.
Caesar salad and garden salad
Fettuccini Alfredo, spaghetti with marinara, and chicken parmesan
and cheesecake for dessert
A few shots of some of the unique decor.
And the eclectic ladies room
And a quick selfie of some of the gals on the bus after dinner.
We were then off to the Oriental Theatre in downtown Chicago to see the show.
I was able to sneak in some pictures during the show. You will have to excuse the head shots of people sitting in front of me - I didn't want to stand up to take pictures since "picture taking is not allowed". I think the ushers were fascinated with the show and not paying attention.
Keep in mind that the performers in the flashy costumes are men - or "Drag Queens', as they referred to themselves. If only "I" had those legs! The singing, dancing, and performing was outstanding. We saw this show in New York City in September 2015 and I do believe the Chicago production surpassed the New York production.
"Lola", the star of the show, is in red in the first pictures below.
Below is "Lola" out of costume.
