Kinky Boots the Musical
142 Throckmorton Theatre presents their new production of KINKY BOOTS THE MUSICAL, the uplifting, TRUE story about a struggling shoe factory that takes an unusual turn to rescue its bottom line. Along the way, the musical challenges audiences to "Accept someone for who they are".
Winner of six Tony Awards, including Best Musical, KINKY BOOTS features a joyous, Tony-winning score by Cyndi Lauper, and a hilarious and moving book by four-time Tony winner, Harvey Fierstein.

SYNOPSIS: Charlie Price has reluctantly inherited his father's shoe factory, which is on the verge of bankruptcy. Trying to live up to his father's legacy and save his family business, Charlie finds inspiration in the form of Lola. A fabulous drag performer in need of some sturdy stilettos, Lola turns out to be the one person who can help Charlie become the man that he is meant to be. As they work to turn the factory around, this unlikely pair find that they have more in common than they ever dreamed possible... and discover that, when you change your mind about someone, you can change your whole world.

CYNDI LAUPER (music & lyrics) recently told the AP in reference to last year’s Off-Broadway revival: “It’s … a show where not just one person evolves, but everyone evolves. It’s a story that has redemption. And that’s the most important thing. You need to give people hope. You can’t take people’s hope away….Look, sometimes the person you work with for 12 hours a day, they have a different life experience and maybe you share your story together, you can both evolve, right? You can evolve together. And that’s what it should be, that we can evolve -- not cancel each other.”
