"People's reactions to Kinky Boots have been amazing from the very beginning. By the end of the show, the audiences are on their feet clapping and dancing and cheering – what more could you possibly ask for?" composer-lyricist Cyndi Lauper said in a statement. "And the show has a ton of heart; it feels like such an honor to be part of something that makes people so happy." Inspired by true events, Kinky Boots, according to press notes, "takes you from a gentlemen’s shoe factory in Northampton to the glamorous catwalks of Milan. Charlie Price is struggling to live up to his father’s expectations and continue the family business of Price & Sons. With the factory’s future hanging in the balance, help arrives in the unlikely but spectacular form of Lola, a fabulous performer in need of some sturdy new stilettos."
