About this show

Kinky Boots is Broadway's huge-hearted, high-heeled hit! With songs by Grammy and Tony Award-winning pop icon Cyndi Lauper, this joyous musical celebration is about the friendships people discover and the belief that you can change the world when you change your mind. Inspired by true events, Kinky Boots takes audiences from a gentlemen's shoe factory in Northampton, England, to the glamorous catwalks of Milan.

Charlie Price is struggling to live up to his father's expectations and continue the family shoemaking business. With his factory's future hanging in the balance, help arrives in the unlikely but spectacular form of Lola, a fabulous performer in need of some sturdy new stilettos. With direction and choreography by multi-Tony winner Jerry Mitchell (Hairspray) and a book by Harvey Fierstein (La Cage aux Folles) — another Tony winner — Kinky Boots scored some Tonys of its own: six total, including Best Musical, Best Score, and Best Choreography.
