KINKY BOOT's Jerry Mitchell Wins Best Choreography

Jerry Mitchell has won the 2013 Tony Award for Best Choreography for KINKY BOOTS. Mitchell made his Broadway and West End debuts as the director of Legally Blonde (Olivier Award for Best Musical, Tony nomination and Drama Desk nomination for choreography, Drama Desk nomination for direction.)

He received the Tony, Drama Desk and Outer Critics' Circle Awards for choreographing the 2005 revival of La Cage aux Folles, as well as a Tony nomination as choreographer of The Full Monty, Hairspray, Never Gonna Dance and Dirty Rotten Scoundrels.

Twenty years ago while dancing on Broadway in The Will Rogers Follies, Jerry conceived and created Broadway Bares, a comedy burlesque show performed annually for the charity, Broadway Cares. Now, Jerry serves as Executive Producer for Broadway Bares, with a book, website (broadwaybares.com) and satellite productions of Broadway Bares in Las Vegas, Fire Island and London (West End Bares). The fundraising efforts have brought more than $10 million to Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS.

Jerry also proudly serves on the board of BC/EFA. Jerry conceived, directed and choreographed Peepshow at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas, now entering its 4th year. Currently, Jerry is directing and choreographing the forthcoming Broadway production of The Honeymooners, a new musical based on the iconic Jackie Gleason television series. Jerry's newly formed company, Jerry Mitchell Productions, in association with Ambassador Theater Group, is currently developing 3 new musicals for London and Broadway.

From Grammy Award-winning pop icon Cyndi Lauper and four-time Tony Award winner Harvey Fierstein comes the exhilarating new musical KINKY BOOTS, directed and choreographed by Tony Award winner Jerry Mitchell.

Charlie Price (Tony nominee Stark Sands) has suddenly 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 (Billy Porter). A fabulous entertainer in need of some sturdy stilettos, Lola turns out to be the one person who can help Charlie become the man he's 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.

Featuring a sensational new score, knockout dancing and a spectacularly uplifting story, KINKY BOOTS is the must-see new musical that proves that sometimes, the best way to fit in is to stand out!
