Intro

When Charlie takes over his late father’s shoe factory in the English countryside, the factory is close to bankruptcy. Charlies makes some very interesting acquaintances with whose help he might be able to save the factory. Come and be part of a truly entertaining evening with a touch of history, catchy music, colorful glittering costumes and appealing choreography. Kinky Boots has all this and more in store for audiences! The musical tale is simple, memorable and based on a true story first presented as a television documentary, then transferred into a film and finally found its way onto the Broadway stage as a musical adaptation in New York.

Synopsis

Charlie Price grew up as the son of a shoe manufacturer. The third generation of the business is being run by his father. When Charlie takes over the shoe factory, he realizes very quickly that if he does not update their business practices, this family trade is going to fail. The market for high-quality but somewhat old-fashioned men's shoes is dwindling, and Charlie has no idea how he could save the firm. Charlie happens to make the acquaintance of drag queen Lola. Lola complains to Charlie about the expensive poor-quality shoes since they are not designed for women’s bodies and not for heavy men. Charlie gets an idea and sees the need for quality high heels shoes for men at an affordable price, opening up a whole new avenue for his fading business.

Innovation

Kinky Boots debuted on Broadway in 2019. The story deals with the importance of friendship, respect and tolerance. This Broadway musical has become a huge success simple because the show does not convey its values with a fault-finding raised index finger, but rather transmits the message in a fun filled atmosphere. It comes as no surprise that the musical was awarded the prestigious US Tony Award for Best Musical, the British equivalent which is called the Laurence Olivier Award and even a Grammy Award for the soundtrack. Cindy Lauper's music certainly contributes to the huge success of the production. And though Lauper’s songs such as "Girls Just Want To Have Fun," "True Colors" and "Time After Time” are true classics today and hard to rival, but she did an amazing job with the creation of additional new music for Kinky Boots as well.

Cast & Music

The popularity and success of the show is ensured not only by the rousing earworms of Lauper, who made her debut as a musical composer for Kinky Boots in 2012, but especially the two leading actors Stark Sands and Billy Porter as Charlie and Lola. Porter comes to Kinky Boots after already proving his talent on Broadway in the 1994 revival of Grease. Billy Porter is not only physically impressive thanks to his muscles, but he also knows how to convince the audience with his multifaceted performance. From sexy to spurred, sensitive, shy, lovable and empathetic – Billy Porter’s Lola is a portrait of authenticity, in very high heels to boot!

Pop icon Cyndi Lauper's tunes such as “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun” and “Time After Time” greatly contribute to the show’s triumph. She created an explosive hit by penning new songs for Broadway like “Take What you Got,” “Land of Lola,” “Raise You Up” and the list goes on! One thing is certain: these songs become instant earworms sure to follow you for days. Kinky Boots doesn't get pigeonholed, which makes the play a lot more interesting for so many different viewers. The production isn't just a musical - it's also a big, colorful show with parties and glittering disco nights. It’s a feast for the eyes with glitter and flashes as far as the eye can see. The energy of Kinky Boots is so infectious that spectators can’t help but jump up to sing and dance along!

Actor Harvey Fierstein created the book for the multi-award-winning musical. Pop icon Cyndi Lauper contributed the inspiring sound track, which resulted in a great recipe for success, and Jerry Mitchell directed the original production, in addition to developing the choreography. The Broadway musical Kinky Boots first premiered as a tryout in Chicago in 2012. It is certainly not just a jukebox rendering of old hits from Cyndi but rather a thoroughly composed, fresh new work.
