This year our partners at The Biennial of The America's are celebrating Denver's History and we're joining in the celebration by shining a sequined shoulder pad on the television show DYNASTY, notoriously "about" but never "filmed" in Denver. The opulence! The luxury! The hair! We be presenting episodes of DYNASTY on many walls of Henderson's Lounge.
Enjoy some delicious bites, brunch drink specials and a few performances from some of Denver's best drag performers channeling their best Krystal or Alexis Carrington. After all of that we'll conclude the brunch with a screening of the 2005 drag comedy KINKY BOOTS which inspired the current Tony Award-winning musical of the same name on Broadway!
About KINKY BOOTS:
35mm presentation - Charlie Price (Joel Edgerton), owner of the traditional men's footwear factory that has survived in his family for generations, faces the imminent closure of his beloved business which would have a severe impact on the employment prospects of local people.
That is, until a chance meeting with flamboyant cabaret act Lola (Chiwetel Ejiofor) convinces him that, to stay afloat, his company's footwear range will have to branch out. Turning out stylish kinky boots for performers like Lola and her colleagues is certainly not quite what he had in mind...
