Broadway Live INSIDER Kinky Boots Preview

The bright red RuPaul’s Drag Race runway-ready hip boots featured prominently on the promotional poster might lead you to believe sequined costumes steal the show in Broadway’s KINKY BOOTS, but the true stars of this megahit musical are not on stage at all.

They would be the dynamic duo of 1980’s pop music icon Cyndi Lauper and LGBT theatre legend Harvey Fierstein. It is their original songs and book that elevate the proceedings higher than the hip boot’s heels. Fierstein and Lauper have long been friends, and they both leaped at the chance to write together to bring the affirming true story of KINKY BOOTS to the stage.

When their effort first opened on Broadway in 2013 it was not well received by the peckish New York critics and ticket sales were initially slow.  Matilda The Musical was getting all the early season love that year and KINKY BOOTS entered the 2013 awards season as the underdog.

But never underestimate the power of a gay-friendly Power Couple. Lauper and Fierstein’s boots were made for walking. A mere three weeks after opening KINKY BOOTS surpassed Matilda with audiences in box office gross and became an even hotter ticket after a post-Tony Awards boost from 13 nominations and 6 Tony wins including Best Musical.  Cyndi Lauper’s songwriting won for Best Score making her the first woman in American theatre history to win alone in that category.

KINKY BOOTS is scheduled to close on Broadway this April after a successful five-year run. A new tour kicked off its national swing in Paducah a few weeks ago and sashays into Lexington January 18-20 as the Opera House.  If you’re going to get a ticket to this smash hit fresh from Broadway, you better werk, honey!
