Kinky Boots. Musical score by Cindy Lauper. An adaptation of Harvey Fierstein's book. A Broadway event. Outrageous costumes. Phenomenal music and dance. The beautiful Herschfeld Theater is the perfect venue for this production. It was built in 1924 during the vaudeville era. Don't expect lounge seating. We were fortunate to get a backstage tour after the show. It is amazing what the performers can achieve in such a limited space. An evening of fun that can only happen in the Big Apple. One of the ten best we have seen. Don't miss it.

I went this past weekend to see the show "Kinky Boots", which is current in Previews at the Al Hirshfeld Theater. it was a great show! Cyndi Lauper wrote the music and Harvey Fierstein wrote the screenplay, so you can't go wrong! The cast and ensemble were fabulous, the singing, dancing and choreography was also spot-on. Plus the theater is a classicly designed and decorated venue featuring Al Hirschfeld's artwork on the 2nd floor. Get their early to enjoy them before the show starts. The seats are comfortable, but there isn't much room left-to-right or front-to-back. That wouldn't stop me from going to see anything at this theater. So what are you waiting for? Go put on your most Fabulous footware and stomp on over to the Al Hirschfeld Theater to see Kinky Boots! This would be a great show for couples, bachelorette parties, but 13 and older please.

A high energy incredible fun show -- score by Cyndi Lauper and book by Harvey Fierstein ... what incredible musical. The cast was perfect and the music excellent. I hope this one runs long enough for me to see it again on my next visit. True Broadway entertainment! Plus it is playing at one of the nicest theaters in all of Broadway. Make sure to visit the gallery on the 2nd floor to see the original Hirschfelds.

Plus, I got to see and speak to Harvey Fierstein, what a treat that was!

I can't believe anyone would leave this show at intermission, I would have stood up the entire time to see it.

Went to see Kinky Boots preview tonight, but had to leave in intermission because of cramped legs. The seats are absolutely the narrowest I've ever experienced in a theater. A disgrace.
