Review

Kinky Boots opened at the Kentucky Center this week and it is a must see!  

The musical is Broadway’s huge-hearted, high-heeled hit! With songs by Grammy and Tony-winning pop icon Cyndi Lauper, this joyous musical celebration is about the friendships we discover, and the belief that you can change the world when you change your mind.

Inspired by true events, Kinky Boots takes you from a gentlemen’s shoe factory in Northampton to the glamorous catwalks of Milan. Charlie Price is struggling to live up to his father’s expectations and continue the family business of Price & Son. With the factory’s future hanging in the balance, help arrives in the unlikely but spectacular form of Lola, a fabulous performer in need of some sturdy new stilettos.

Kinky Boots took home six 2013 Tony Awards, the most of any show in the season, including Best Musical, Best Score (Cyndi Lauper), Best Choreography (Jerry Mitchell), Best Orchestrations (Stephen Oremus) and Best Sound Design (John Shivers). The show also received the Drama League, Outer Critics Circle and Broadway.com Awards for Best Musical and the Grammy Award for Best Musical Album, along with many other accolades.

If you don't have tickets to go see Kinky Boots (Touring) this week at the The Kentucky Center for the Performing Arts as part of the Broadway Across America Louisville season, RUN, do not walk, and get tickets now. It is an amazing show full of great song and dance but even more, it is a message of love and acceptance that everyone needs to hear in this day and age.  I was so impressed with this cast!  Every single person brought something beautiful to the stage!  I grew up listening to Cyndi Lauper so the music sounded so familiar!  She did a great job with the score.  Everyone in the cast blew me away with their vocals!  The choreography was right on point too!  I would never be able to dance like that in heels that tall!  This fun show makes you want to try though!
