New Stage Theatreworks Presents ‘Kinky Boots’

Regional Premiere of the Tony Award-Winning Broadway Hit
Kinky Boots

New Stage Theatreworks is excited to open their newest show, “Kinky Boots.”

Opening Friday, July 7 at Theatre Tallahassee and running two weekends through July 16, “Kinky Boots” is the big-hearted musical extravaganza that won six Tonys including Best Musical, the Grammy for Best Musical Theatre album and London’s Olivier Award for Best Musical.

Angels Boots“Kinky Boots” features a joyous, Tony-winning score by pop icon Cyndi Lauper, and a hilarious, uplifting book by four-time Tony winner, Harvey Fierstein.

Charlie Price has reluctantly 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.

As they work to turn the factory around, this unlikely pair find that they have more in common than they realized… and discover that when you change your mind, you can change your whole world.

Krystof Kage, executive director of New Stage Theatreworks and this show’s director, noted that “we selected this show over a year ago and had no idea that the political landscape would become so vitriolic around something as mainstream as drag. The key messaging behind “Kinky Boots” is not just about accepting people for who they are but committing to raising others up when they are in need of our love and support. “I know that audiences will be inspired by this story and, hopefully, embrace the reality that we are all more similar to each other than some would have us believe. Plus, hey, I know that audiences are going to have a blast!”
