Kinky Boots picked up a hatful of Broadway and Olivier Awards including Best New Musical, Best Actor and Best Costume Design. Grammy Award winner Cyndi Lauper wrote the songs for the show, including Take What You Got, Land of Lola, What a Woman Wants and Soul of a Man.
The feel-good musical is based on the true story of Charlie Price who reluctantly inherits his father's shoe factory. But saving the company from bankruptcy is not easy -- and neither is living up to his father's legacy. But then Charlie meets the larger-than-life Lola -- an entertainer in serious need of some good stilettos. But will Lola want to swap the glamorous catwalks of Milan for a grimy factory floor, and help Charlie turn his business around?
Kinky Boots is all about friendship and believing that you can change the world... if only you can change your mind!
