Charlie finds inspiration in Lola (Porter), a fabulous entertainer in need of some sturdy stilettos. As the unlikely pair works to turn the factory around, they find they have more in common than they ever dreamed possible.

The Kinky Boots creative team includes scenic designer David Rockwell, costume designer Gregg Barnes, lighting designer Kenneth Posner, sound designer John Shivers and hair designer Josh Marquette.
