Kinky Boots

The Broadway classic with music from 80s icon Cyndi Lauper, and written by Harvey Fierstein. Kinky Boots follows the story of Charlie Price, as he struggles with his father’s expectations that he take up the family business of Price & Sons. With his family’s factory and future hanging in the balance, Price finds help in Lola, a fabulous performer in need of some sturdy new stilettos.
