About
KINKY BOOTS is the winner of every major BEST MUSICAL award, including the Tony, The Grammy, and London’s Olivier Award. Based on true events, this huge-hearted hit tells the story of two people with nothing in common – or so they think!

Charlie is a factory owner struggling to save his family business. Lola is a fabulous entertainer with a wildly exciting idea. With a little compassion and a lot of understanding, this unexpected pair learns to embrace their differences and creates a line of sturdy stilettos unlike any the world has ever seen! But in the end, their most sensational achievement is their friendship.
