The winner of the Kinky Boots Give-A-Way is Kevin Auriemma from Chicago
A Grammy and Emmy award winning artist with more than 25 sterling years and global record sales in excess of 30 million, Cyndi Lauper has proven that she has the heart and soul to keep her legion of fans compelled by her every creative move.
Now the iconic star is set to conquer Broadway, and I'm so happy and excited for her! The talented performer has teamed up with four-time Tony®-Award winner Harvey Fierstein to create the new musical Kinky Boots.
Kinky Boots, the new musical that brings together four-time Tony® Award-winner Harvey Fierstein who wrote the book, and Grammy® Award-winning Cyndi Lauper who wrote the Music & Lyrics for the pre-Broadway world premiere to be in Chicago. Directed and choreographed by Tony® Award-winner Jerry Mitchell, Kinky Boots will run in Chicago, from October 2 through November 4, 2012, and in March 2013 on Broadway in NYC.
In Kinky Boots, Charlie Price is forced to step in and save his family’s shoe factory in Northern England, following the sudden death of his father. Help comes from the unlikeliest angel, a fabulous drag performer named Lola. Together, this improbable duo revitalizes the failing business, while helping one another grow into the men their fathers always dreamed they would become and transforming an entire community through the power of acceptance.
Inspired by a true story and based on the film, Kinky Boots features a warm and witty book by Mr. Fierstein (La Cage, Torch Song Trilogy, Newsies) and a richly diverse musical score from Ms. Lauper, in her stunning theatrical debut. Mr. Mitchell (Hairspray, La Cage, Broadway Bares) has crafted a production bound to move, inspire and set audience's feet dancing.
KINKY® Liqueur, a premium fused-vodka, is the official drink of Kinky Boots and will be pouring its signature cocktail, "Kinky Bubbles," during the four-week run before heading to New York in March for the Broadway opening. To celebrate its sponsorship and national launch, KINKY® is launching a Facebook promotion that will have two lucky fans wearing a pair of Manolo Blahnik boots, exclusively-designed for Lauper for the Chicago premiere and autographed by the Grammy® winner.
