Kinky Boots, the 2013 Tony winner for Best Musical, will be staged at the Hollywood Bowl July 8-10.

Jerry Mitchell, who directed and choreographed the original Broadway production, will handle those same duties for the summer production. Casting will be announced at a later date.

The winner of six 2013 Tony Awards, Kinky Boots features a Tony-winning score by Cyndi Lauper and a book by Tony winner Harvey Fierstein. The production played 2,507 regular performances and 34 previews at the Al Hirschfeld Theatre.

The original Broadway company was headed by Billy Porter as indefatigable drag performer Lola, whose broken heel helps mend a broken wing for a foundering shoe-maker, originally played by Stark Sands. Both Porter and Sands were Tony-nominated for their performances; Porter won the Tony for Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role in a Musical, and Mitchell won his second career Tony Award for his choreography.

Among the many musicals presented in recent years at the Hollywood Bowl are A Chorus Line, Les Misérables, Rent, Guys and Dolls, and Hairspray.
