Kinky Boots Broadway Original Cast


Kinky Boots Broadway

KINKY BOOTS is the winner of every major BEST MUSICAL award, including the Tony, the Grammy and London’s Olivier Award. Based on true events, this huge-hearted hit tells the story of two people with nothing in common -- or so they think! Charlie is a factory owner struggling to save his family business. Lola is a fabulous entertainer with a wildly exciting idea. With a little compassion and a lot of understanding, this unexpected pair learns to embrace their differences and creates a line of sturdy stilettos unlike any the world has ever seen! But in the end, their most sensational achievement is their friendship.

Featuring 16 original songs by CYNDI LAUPER, a book by HARVEY FIERSTEIN, and direction and choreography by JERRY MITCHELL, this joyous sensation "struts its stuff with sparkle, stilettos and heart!" (Sydney Morning Herald). There’s never been a better time to experience KINKY BOOTS, Broadway’s "dazzling, sassy and uplifting" (Time Out) smash!
