Kinky Boots took home six 2013 Tony Awards – more than any other show that season – including Best Musical, Best Score (Cyndi Lauper), Best Choreography (Jerry Mitchell), Best Orchestrations (Stephen Oremus) and Best Sound Design (John Shivers). The show also received the award for Best Musical from the Drama League, Outer Critics Circle and Broadway.com, as well as the Grammy Award for Best Musical Album, along with many other accolades.

Inspired by true events, Kinky Boots takes you from a gentlemen’s shoe factory in Northampton to the glamorous catwalks of Milan. Charlie Price is struggling to live up to his father’s expectations and continue the family business of Price & Son. With the factory’s future hanging in the balance, help arrives in the unlikely but spectacular form of Lola –a fabulous performer in need of some sturdy new 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 the whole world.

Charlie Price’s journey is based on the true story of Steve Pateman, an Englishman who struggled to save his family-run shoe factory from closure. Under pressure from changes in the fashion industry and competition abroad, he started to look for new markets. An unexpected call from a woman who ran a shop specializing in transgender glamour wear convinced him to try a line of women’s shoes in men’s sizes. He developed his line of “kinky boots” under the brand name “Divine Footwear.”
