Kinky Boots is a show with heart. The incredible cast shine, especially Stark Sands, Billy Porter and Annaleigh Ashford.

The story is that Lola, a stunning drag queen with style and passion helps save the shoe factory and also saves himself.

Lola, played by Billy Porter designs gorgeous sparkly kinky boots for male drag queens. (Being able to make boots that support the weight of a male!)

The music is outstanding and the entire cast are exceptional. I was blown away with Annaleigh Ashford’s performance. She reminded me of Cyndi Lauper and had her bubbly charm while singing ” The History of Wrong Guys” in that song I wanted to get up and cheer as her voice and comedic chops and talent blew me away.

This show is a joy from start to finish. I only wished there was some way for Cyndi to add some of her known hits to this score like ” Girls Just Want To Have Fun” and “Time After Time”  You will  get excited by the incredible dancers and direction. Every one of them a star.

I have always loved Lauper and you will have fun at this sweet sensation called Kinky Boots.

I also want to say that Gregg Barnes gorgeous costumes are stunning. I wish I could wear Lola’s sparkly red sequence dress that looks like something a young LIZA would wear and her white gown was stunning.
