About the Show
Based on the Miramax motion picture of the same name, written by Geoff Deane and Tim Firth
Winner of six Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Kinky Boots features a joyous, Tony-winning score by Cyndi Lauper and a hilarious, uplifting book by four-time Tony Award-winner Harvey Fierstein.

Charlie Price has reluctantly inherited his father’s shoe factory, which is on the verge of bankruptcy. Trying to live up to his father’s legacy and save his family business, Charlie finds inspiration in the form of Lola. A fabulous entertainer in need of some sturdy stilettos, Lola turns out to be the one person who can help Charlie become the man that he is meant to be. As they work to turn the factory around, this unlikely pair finds that they have more in common than they ever dreamed possible...and discovers that, when you change your mind about someone, you can change your whole world. A truly moving and powerful story, Kinky Boots will have everyone dancing in the aisle and discovering why, sometimes, the best way to fit in...is to stand out!
