VIDEO: KINKY BOOTS Fan Sweepstakes Winner Gets Special Moment With Cast

The winner, Molly, submitted a heartfelt video talking about the impact of the show in her life.

Kinky Boots released a video highlighting the winner of #TheBootsAreBackSweeps, a social promotion in which fans submitted videos about their excitement about the musical returning to NYC for a chance to win tickets to the first preview performance.

The winner, Molly, submitted a heartfelt video talking about the impact of the show in her life: Kinky Boots was her daughter Megan's favorite show and they went to see it together multiple times during the Broadway run before Megan passed away from cancer at age 23.

Molly brought her best friend to revisit the show in memory of her daughter. In addition to tickets and hotel stay for the first preview, Molly also got to have a special moment with the cast after the show.
