This big-hearted musical tells the tale of Charlie Price, who is struggling to save his family factory from closure, and Lola the entertainer who tries to help him with wild ideas. The unlikely pair creates a snazzy line of stilettos that lights the world on fire, and in the course of it all both learn valuable lessons about compassion and accepting each other’s differences. The show features lyrics and music by Cyndi Lauper and book by Harvey Fierstein.

Benet Braun provides the musical leadership and conducts the accomplished 11-pc orchestra, too. Broadway’s John Tartaglia, the Director, elicits the fine cast performances and keeps those kinky boots a- struttin’ to and fro. Lastly, the array of talent in the ensemble ensures that the Price & Son workforce grounds the production in realistic trappings.

Giving the show its Broadway vibe are musicians from Los Angeles Musicians Collective. There is simply something about a live orchestra that provides the excitement necessary for an outstanding show. Choreography by Linda Love Simmons adds the last element that gives this show its vitality.

All the principals in the production deliver strong performances, especially Poost and Goglia. Lauren’s “History of Wrong Guys” is notable. Lola’s “Hold Me In Your Heart” makes a nice finish for the conflict.

You won't be disappointed in this musical. It has the right amount of heart, humor, and high spirits.

Now that Kinky Boots has closed on Broadway after a whopping 2500+ performances and its 2nd National Tour has shut down shop, audiences can expect regional theaters to jump on the rights to this bona fide crowd-pleaser. First at the starting gate, 3-D Theatricals’ Kinky Boots gets everything right.

John Tartaglia directs, and while the production lacks some of the interplay and subtext of the 2014 national tour, it certainly feels every bit as heartwarming and pointed as ever. It also boasts David Rockwell’s Broadway set and Gregg Barnes’ happily flamboyant Broadway costume designs.
