The winner of six 2013 Tony Awards including Best Musical, Kinky Boots features a Tony-winning score by Cyndi Lauper, a book by Tony winner Harvey Fierstein, and direction and choreography by Tony winner Jerry Mitchell.

Emmy winner Wayne Brady currently heads the cast as Lola, with American Idol winner David Cook as Charlie Price and Grammy winner Kirstin Maldonado as Lauren.
