Previews of Broadway’s kinkiest, new musical Kinky Boots began March 3, 2013. Kinky Boots has music and lyrics by Cyndi Lauper and a story line adapted from the book by Harvey Fierstein.
It’s based on the true story behind the 2005 film, telling the story of a struggling shoemaker and his drag queen business partner, who come together to save the business by inventing a rather unusual design of footwear.
But boots aside, the musical is really about two young men coming from opposite worlds and figuring out they actually have a lot in common.
And it’s this message that touches audience members the most.
Kinky Boots is expected to make its official Broadway debut on April 4, 2013 at the Al Hirschfeld Theatre.
