“Kinky Boots” Comes to Broadway!

Theater, shoes, and a little bit of kinkiness thrown in — what’s not to love? Add to this the fact that one of the hottest shows currently running on Broadway is also based on a true story, and you’ve got a sure-fire winner on your hands. These are the things the show Kinky Boots are all about; and while it’s currently playing in Chicago, it’s set to come to Broadway in 2013!

Kinky Boots is a true story about a shoe factory in Northampton, New England that has hit hard times. Unable to lure customers in with even the newest designer trends, the owners turn to a different demographic — drag queens and “female illusionists” looking for fetish footwear. If you think the concept is enough for a hit show, wait until you actually see the boom this brings to business. With some of the most comedic characters making up the ensemble of customers and staff, and lots of music along the way, Kinky Boots has already opened to rave reviews in Chicago.

The show premiered last night at Chicago’s Bank of America Theatre, with the official opening being held on October 17. The show will run in Chicago until November 17, but it will only have a few months of rest. On April 4, 2013 it’s set to open on Broadway.

Jerry Mitchell is directing and choreographing the musical, Harvey Fierstein wrote the book for the show, and Cyndi Lauper has written the songs. And while that name may surprise some, while it’s Lauper’s first time stepping in as composer, she performed on Broadway in 2006′s The Threepenny Opera.

While some have wondered about how well Kinky Boots will debut on-stage, this talented cast and crew are just the ones to pull it off!
