Based on a true story, 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 scheme actually work? And can these two extremely different men find a common ground and become real friends?


In 2013, Kinky Boots the musical premiered on Broadway, with a book by Harvey Fierstein and Tony-winning original pop-rock songs by Cyndi Lauper. The show took home six Tony Awards, includingr Best Musical, Best Score, and Best Choreography.
