Kinky Boots



Everyone loves the story of an underdog, especially when it involves cabaret-worthy shoes and music, and relationships in the unlikeliest of places. This is exactly what makes the international Broadway musical Kinky Boots such a popular show wherever it goes. Now, The Phoenix Theatre Company is producing its version of the show, which will run Aug. 28 through Oct. 13. It’s only the third regional theatre in the U.S. to do so.

Created by four-time Tony Award-winner, Harvey Fierstein, and Grammy and Tony Award-winning rock icon, Cyndi Lauper, Kinky Boots combines the energetic dazzle of a drag show with a touching story of humanity.

Based on the 2005 British movie of the same name, Kinky Boots is inspired by true events and tells the story of Charlie Price, who inherits a floundering shoe factory from his father. In order to save the business, Charlie forms an unlikely partnership with a drag queen named Lola, who is a fabulous performer in need of some sturdy new stilettos. Kinky Boots tells a tale of what can be accomplished when a town pulls together and people set aside differences to achieve a common goal. Throughout the show, Charlie and Lola discover that although they look different, they are really more alike than they originally thought.

Kinky Boots earned six 2013 Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Best Choreography and Best Score for Lauper’s 16 original songs. It also won three Laurence Olivier Awards, including Best New Musical, and a Grammy Award for the Best Musical Theatre Album.
