Charlie Price has suddenly inherited his father’s shoe factory, which is on the verge of bankruptcy. Trying to live up to his father’s legacy and save his family business, Charlie finds inspiration in the form of Lola. A fabulous entertainer in need of some sturdy stilettos, Lola turns out to be the one person who can help Charlie become the man he’s meant to be. As they work to turn the factory around, this unlikely pair finds that they have more in common than they ever dreamed possible… and discovers that when you change your mind about someone, you can change your whole world.
Based on a true story and the indie film of the same name, KINKY BOOTS follows young Brit Charlie Price, who abandons his family’s shoe factory to live with his demanding girlfriend in London. After the unexpected death of his father, Charlie returns to the struggling factory and finds it’s up to him to figure out a way to keep the business alive. Enter Lola, a fabulous drag queen, who gives Charlie the idea to create ladies’ shoes for men. Soon, the factory is turning out “kinky boots” under the supervision of Charlie and Lola, but can this harebrained scheme actually work? And can these two extremely different men find a common ground and become real friends?
Winner of six 2013 Tony Awards®, including Best Musical, KINKY BOOTS features the first-ever Broadway score by Grammy winner Cyndi Lauper (who became the first female solo songwriter to win a Tony) and a hilarious yet moving book by four-time Tony winner Harvey Fierstein. The new musical packs a punch and provides everything audiences look for in a night at the theater: catchy songs, top-notch performances, colorful costumes, big sets, dazzling dance sequences and even a few scenes that could make you cry. Despite numbers set at a drag club, KINKY BOOTS is much more than a drag queen musical; it touches on the universal themes of father/son relationships and accepting others for who they really are. Directed and choreographed by Tony winner Jerry Mitchell, KINKY BOOTS is the epitome of a feel-good musical that inspires audiences to dance in the aisles.

Recommended age of 10+. At the end of the day, Kinky Boots is about acceptance – accepting yourself and accepting other people for who they are: the importance of kindness, understanding, and friendship.
