Inspired by a true story and based on the Miramax motion picture written by Geoff Deane and Tim Firth, Kinky Boots features a warm and witty book by four-time Tony Award-winner Harvey Fierstein (La Cage, Torch Song Trilogy, Newsies) and a richly diverse musical score from Grammy Award-winning rock icon Cyndi Lauper, in her stunning theatrical debut. The production is directed and choreographed by Tony Award-winner Jerry Mitchell (Hairspray, La Cage, Broadway Bares), with music supervision, arrangements and orchestrations by Stephen Oremus (Book of Mormon, Wicked). Charlie Price has suddenly inherited his father's shoe factory, which is on the verge of bankruptcy. Trying to live up to his father's legacy and save his family business, Charlie finds inspiration in the form of Lola. A fabulous entertainer in need of some sturdy stilettos, Lola turns out to be the one person who can help Charlie become the man he's meant to be. As they work to turn the factory around, this unlikely pair finds that they have more in common than they ever dreamed possible...and discovers that when you change your mind about someone, you can change your whole world.

"Kinky Boots" is a great musical that has already won 6 Tony Awards, including Best Musical for 2014. It has already played the 5th Avenue Theater to rave reviews and is still drawing packed crowds on Broadway in New York City. Cyndi Lauper is the musical genius behind the play. She took the book by Harvey Feinstein, who had already 3 Tony Award Winning Musicals, and added all the music to the book. This is thought to be one of the best musicals to come to Broadway in years. KCLS has 8 copies and already 36 patrons are waiting for a copy. For those of us who love a great musical, this is a must to hear and enjoy!

It's a really fun show, and the recording does well showing that. Not my favorite, but you can get swept up in the music. "Not My Father's Son" and "Step One" are stand outs for me though.
