Cyndi Lauper, whose new musical Kinky Boots has made her a 2013 Tony nominee, was awarded one of Broadway's most exciting honors. A caricature of her will hang on the walls of famed midtown restaurant Sardi's. Lauper received and signed her caricature at a ceremony at the restaurant on June 5.

Kinky Boots, the new drag queen-themed Broadway musical for which Lauper wrote the music, is the story of a Charlie Price, a young man whose recently deceased father has left him a nearly bankrupt shoe factory. He teams up with a sassy drag performer named Lola to save the family business.

The "Girls Just Want to Have Fun" singer's previous Broadway experiences include a starring role opposite Alan Cumming in the 2006 revival of Brecht and Weill's Threepenny Opera.
