1. The energy is contagious

Though Charlie Price and the workers at the Price & Son shoe factory seem down on their luck, you’ll be singing along and clapping along with them in no time! You’ll experience the butterflies of a crush, the sting of a boxing match and the excitement of a new pair of shoes! Everyone leaves the theater with a smile on their face.

2. The company is talented

From the smallest to the tallest, this cast is loaded with talent. The company’s vocal range had us oohing and ahhing at every note. Lola, a cabaret performer and drag queen in need of new boots, gives a jaw-dropping performance from beginning to end. Some of our favorite songs include “The History of Wrong Guys,” “Everybody Say Yeah” and of course, “Hold Me in Your Heart.”

The end of each act showcases the company’s talent with upbeat singing and dancing. The Angels, Lola’s back up dancers, were so fun to watch with their hair flips, high kicks and splits.

3. It’s based on a true story

It’s easy to get caught up in the sparkles and six inch heels but Kinky Boots has a great message of acceptance and being true to yourself. We couldn’t get enough of Charlie and Lola’s budding friendship and the lessons Lola shared with everyone at Price & Son. The best part is, the story was inspired by true events.

4. Winner of 6 Tony Awards

The awards and nominations speak for themselves. With music and lyrics by Cyndi Lauper and choreography and direction by Jerry Mitchell, it’s no wonder Kinky Boots boasts 6 Tony Awards including Best Musical!
