Have fun with Cyndi Lauper Sunday
Cyndi Lauper burst onto the music scene in 1983 with the album “She’s So Unusual,” which featured a bounty of hits, including that rallying cry of sisterhood, “Girls Just Want to Have Fun.” Lauper’s picked a fitting way to celebrate the album’s thirtieth anniversary; she’ll perform the record in its entirety, including a stop in Tacoma Sunday. Four of the album’s singles reached the Top 5, making Lauper the first female artist to achieve this feat, and she’s still making firsts; this past Sunday, she became the first woman to win a Tony for Best Original Score, when she scooped up the honor for writing the songs for the Broadway musical “Kinky Boots.”
Lauper appears at 7:30 pm. Sunday at the Pantages Theater, Broadway Center for the Performing Arts, 901 Broadway, Tacoma; $59-$129 (591-5894 or www.broadwaycenter.org)
