Kinky Boots

Closed November 4, 2012

Featuring a sensational new score by Cyndi Lauper, knockout dancing, and a spectacularly uplifting story, KINKY BOOTS proves that sometimes, the best way to fit in is to stand out!

Why See Kinky Boots?

Kinky Boots follows Charlie Price, who is forced to step in and save his family's shoe factory in Northern England, following the sudden death of his father.

Help comes from the unlikeliest form, an exuberant drag performer named Lola. Together, this improbable duo not only revitalizes the nearly bankrupt business, but helps one another grow into the men their fathers always dreamed their sons would become and transforms an entire community through the power of acceptance.

Inspired by a true story and based on the 2005 British film, Kinky Boots features a warm and witty book by four-time Tony Award-winner Harvey Fierstein (La Cage, Torch Song Trilogy, Newsies) and a richly diverse musical score from Grammy Award-winning Cyndi Lauper, in her stunning theatrical debut.

Tony Award-winner Jerry Mitchell (Hairspray, La Cage, Broadway Bares) directs and choreographs a production bound to move, inspire and set audience's feet dancing.
