Story

for Kinky Boots

Based on a true story and the indie film of the same name, Kinky Boots follows young Brit Charlie Price, who abandons his family’s shoe factory to live with his demanding girlfriend in London. After the unexpected death of his father, Charlie returns to the struggling factory and finds it’s up to him to figure out a way to keep the business alive. Enter Lola, a fabulous drag queen, who gives Charlie the idea to create ladies’ shoes for men. Soon, the factory is turning out “kinky boots” under the supervision of Charlie and Lola, but can this harebrained scheme actually work? And can these two extremely different men find a common ground and become real friends?
 

Reviews

for Kinky Boots

Sometimes audiences just wanna have fun. And you'd be a heel not to have fun at 'Kinky Boots'. One cause for celebration is the infectious Top 40-ish score by '80s pop star Cyndi Lauper. Another is Billy Porter, who portrays drag queen Lola with enough sequined swagger to make RuPaul look like a wallflower. Thanks to Porter's star-making turn, 'Kinky Boots' delivers some pumps-up kicks.

Review by Thom Geier from Entertainment Weekly

What we have, in 'Kinky Boots', is a well-fitted, well-staged toe-tapper in the contemporary big-Broadway idiom. It’s never boring; it’s never shocking; you are likely to leave entirely entertained and satisfied. Can’t argue with that.

Review by Christopher Bonanos from New York Magazine

The kicky crowd-pleaser 'Kinky Boots' is the very model of a modern major musical. [Cyndi] Lauper is a musical-theater natural, combining bright, infectious melodies with simple but effective lyrics. The overall effect is nigh irresistible; if you’ve been low about this season’s musicals, 'Kinky Boots' may be just the thing to get you back on your feet.
