Kinky Boots

James Yoakley:  My favorite theatrical experience was taking my mom to New York to see Kinky Boots for Christmas.  Sharing an amazing show with my wonderful mom was a blast.

Sheila McNulty Bobholz:  I had the time of my life at Kinky Boots!  I knew I would have fun & loved what I had heard of the music...but I didn't expect to be touched so very much! I laughed hard, cried hard...and wanted to dance all the way home to Philadelphia! Magical musical theatre goosebumps!!!

Valerie Godowsky:  Waking up at 4AM to get a bus to sit and get standing room tickets for Kinky Boots with my best friend.  The show was absolutely fantastic and meeting the absolutely sweet and kind cast after the show was the cherry on top.

John Fortunato:  Kinky Boots back in August... Enough said.

Jeremy Fillipp:  Kinky Boots.  The message it sends proves that this is a musical everyone should see.  Great songs by Lauper and book by Fierstein and the acting and singing is fantastic.  A must see!

Juliana Adame:  Kinky Boots - such a beautifyl score and fun celebration of life with an electrifying score.

Based on the 2005 film of the same title, Kinky Boots took home numerous 2013 Tony Awards, including Best Musical. With music and lyrics by Tony and Grammy Award winner Cyndi Lauper and a book by Tony winner Harvey Fierstein, the musical opened in April 2013 at the Al Hirschfeld Theatre to rave reviews.
