The Rousuck Review: "Kinky Boots"

Oct 2, 2015

 

Kinky Boots” won six Tony Awards, including best musical in 2013. Now this Broadway musical -- script by Harvey Fierstein, score by Cyndi Lauper -- has opened the season at the Hippodrome. Based on a movie that was in turn based on a true story, "Kinky Boots" is about a dying British shoe factory that saves itself by making stiletto-heeled boots for drag queens. Theater critic J. Wynn Rousuck and Tom Hall discuss whether you’ll get a kick out of “Kinky Boots.”
