Such a fun show that is almost a must when visiting New York. Story of a shoe maker that transforms the business and his life - almost sure anyone can find a piece oc themselves in the story.

We loved it

Since I saw Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder a few nights before, which was flawless, I was expecting the same type of quality for this show. No. This Show was slow, singing was weak and the songs were terrible. Cyndi Lauper should be embarrassed to pen a a musical with songs such as "yeah, yeah, yeah". I can't believe that's what she's come to. I was expecting much better from the author of "True Colors". There was no cohesiveness to any of the songs, none of them were catchy or even memorable. Without the amazing Billy Porter or the costumer, with the dazzling costumes at the end, this show would have been a complete waste of time. I would recommend something else.

My husband only likes dramatic theater but not musicals, but he really liked Kinky Boots. The lead in to the audience to please be quiet, no phones etc was cleverly part of the production.

We obtained tickets at the Theater so no discount but we scored 8th row tickets on our 38th Anniversary on a Friday night (8/8).
We knew the story but loved the staging and every performer did a great job. We came out feeling happy and entertained, so glad we went.

This is a fun, energetic, yet heartwarming musical. It is a winner! the talent is amaziing. You will want to go shoe shopping and dancing when you leave this show.

The little old lady next to me said it best - "who doesn't like dragqueens?" Not when portrayed by the Might Bill Porter, who gave Lola, the boot-wearing supernova at the center of this show, such power, such verve, such dignity.

Cyndi Lauper's score is a freshman triumph - great tunes, fabulous dance numbers, a heartbreak ballad. Harvey Feirstein's book is his customary polished gem, taking the movie's thin plot and turning into emotional and comic gold. As always, Jerry Mitchell's direction is polished to a high gloss, and his high-kicking dance numbers are nothing short of spectacular.

Everyone, of all ages, will love this show. I've seen it three times, and would happily go back again.
