Charlie is out of ideas; he’s inherited his father’s shoe factory and it’s going under. Along comes Lola, a fabulous drag entertainer needing a pair of sturdy stilettos, and an unlikely partnership is born as they work together to turn the fortunes of the factory around—discovering that we can change the world when we change our minds.

“It’s why the word fabulous was invented! … A splashy, bouncy, smart show with a heart, beltable songs and hilarious numbers.” – The Philadelphia Inquirer
