You may not be able to make it to New York to see the nominees for this year’s Tony Award for best musical, but you can look at what inspired them — all four of this year’s nominees are based on movies. Kinky Boots is based on the true story of a British shoe factory that was about to close until it developed a nw specialty — fancy footwear for cross-dressers.  Bring It On is based on the story of the high school cheerleader who finds out that her team’s routines have been stolen. Matilda, based on the book by Roald Dahl, is about a little girl who triumphs over awful parents and a tyrant of a school principal. And A Christmas Story is based on the holiday season classic, inspired by the memoirs of Jean Shepherd.
