Would You like “to take” two hours of the fun? Then You must visit the musical “Kinky Boots”! Songs and dances,  the eccentric humour and the never-to-be-forgotten show. The winner of six Tonys turns back on Broadway’s stage. Jake Shears as Charlie Price and J. Harrison Ghee as drag queen Lola will shine to Cyndi Lauper’s music.

Thom Geier from “Entertainment Weekly” wrote about musical: “Sometimes audiences just wanna have fun. And you’d be a heel not to have fun at ”Kinky Boots”. One cause for celebration is the infectious Top 40-ish score by ’80s pop star Cyndi Lauper. Another is Billy Porter, who portrays drag queen Lola with enough sequined swagger to make RuPaul look like a wallflower. Thanks to Porter’s star-making turn, ”Kinky Boots” delivers some pumps-up kicks.”

If You don’t khow what about the sparkling show, we tell: Young Brit Charlie Price abandons his family’s shoe factory to live with his demanding girlfriend in London. But 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 harebrained scheme actually work? And can these two extremely different men find a common ground and become real friends?

Why is It worth to watch “Kinky Boots”? Winner of six 2013 Tony Awards, including Best Musical, “Kinky Boots” features the first-ever Broadway score by Grammy winner Cyndi Lauper and a hilarious yet moving book by four-time Tony winner Harvey Fierstein. The new musical packs a punch and provides everything audiences look for in a night at the theater: catchy songs, top-notch performances, colorful costumes, big sets, dazzling dance sequences and even a few scenes that could make you cry. Despite numbers set at a drag club, “Kinky Boots” is much more than a drag queen musical; it touches on the universal themes of father/son relationships and accepting others for who they really are. Directed and choreographed by Tony winner Jerry Mitchell, “Kinky Boots” is the epitome of a feel-good musical that inspires audiences to dance in the aisles.
