“Get Ready to Laugh!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

Harvey Fierstein's tale is delightful and Cyndi Lauper's music hits it out of the park! While the show is still in previews, I am sure it will become a Broadway hit! The costumes are spot on and the show has a heartwarming message. One must be open-minded to see this show and it is appropriate for older children (12+).

I sat in the orchestra section and as a short person (5'2") I had NO leg room. It was almost uncomfortable...my cousin who is 6'3" was indeed uncomfortable. I was very glad the show took my mind off of the seating situation with its funny twists and turns.

A true delight, Kinky Boots is not to be missed!!!

“Fantastic, a must see”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

Got a flash ticket for the same night. Easy to find the way in. Nice and helpful service with seating.
The show was funny, had a good set up with music, singing and dancing. Absolutely worth seeing.

“GO SEE THIS!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

Seriously, the best musical I have ever seen. Has everything I want in a musical: the flashiness, an amazing book, an amazing libretto and orchestration, perfect singing, the emotion of a small chamber musical, the acting was amazing, and Billy Porter as Lola steals the show. Probably the best musical I will ever see!

“EXCELLENT EXCELLENT EXCELLENT!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

This is a smash hit! Without giving the story away, I will tell you it's the story about two very different men faced with similar challenges around pleasing their fathers. But how this is played is so much fun and not a little "KINKY!"
