KINKY BOOTS Set To 'Raise You Up' at Robinson Performance Hall in Little Rock This October
Arkansasmatters.com reports that the national tour of KINKY BOOTS will perform at the Robinson Performance Hall in downtown Little Rock from October 13-15. This smash Broadway hit has run for five fabulous years on Broadway and boasts twelve Tony-nominations and six awards including Best Musical and Best Original Score.
KINKY BOOTS, which first opened it's doors on Broadway in 2013, follows the story of Charlie Price, a struggling shoe factory owner who finds help and strength in Lola, an entertainer in need of new stiletto heels.

He plays opposite Curt Hansen (Wicked, Next to Normal, Hairspray) as Charlie Price, Rose Hemingway (How To Succeed..., Mama Mia!) as Lauren, Aaron Walpole (Les Miserables, Jesus Christ Superstar) as Don, and Katerina Papacostas (First Date) as Nicola.
