Tango Diva : Travel Stories for Women, by Women

If Drag Queens, Stiletto Heels and Sultry Ballads are not enough motivation to experience Broadway’s beloved musical sensation…perhaps, the show’s six TONY Awards – including Best Musical, Best Score and Best Choreography – will get you to step up and snag a seat.

Time to “kick it up” a notch and pull out your favorite diva dancing shoes!

 

KINKY BOOTS is a high heeled mega hit that you will not want to miss.

With bold numbers like “Sex Is in the Heel”, need I say more.

“It’s why the word FABULOUS was invented! BIG BROADWAY in the BEST WAY! A SPLASHY, BOUNCY, SMART show with a heart, beltable songs and hilarious numbers.” – The Philadelphia Inquirer

“SO MUCH FUN, YOU’LL DANCE OUT OF THE THEATRE.” – ABC NEWS

Diva and 80’s icon, Cyndi Lauper is the genius behind the eclectic musical songbook that soars.

Lauper’s integral role in the show’s artistic development has been instrumental in the musical’s staying power and continued success.

The music covers nearly every genre – from funk to tango – and touches every emotion.

A positive message resonates throughout the story.

Friendship, empowerment and acceptance are all part of the prevailing theme.

KINKY BOOTS is all about making a dream a reality.

The audience follows the journey of a young man from the rural town of Northampton, England to the cosmopolitan design center of Milan. Charlie Price is forced to change his career path in an effort to save his family’s business, Price & Son, a failing shoe factory.

The story unfolds as Charlie explores and embraces life’s possibilities without prejudice. He meets a flamboyant drag queen/cabaret star named Lola who teaches Charlie the importance of fashion and fit.

The unlikely pair become fast friends and business partners. As can be expected with any good heart-wrenching musical, diva drama quickly ensues. There are a few setbacks and cracks along the Kinky Boots proverbial cat walk before audiences are treated to a surprising over-the-top ending.

KINKY BOOTS first opened in April 2013 and is recognized as the 50th longest running Broadway show of all time.

The choreography, acting and musical score mesh into a magical performance.

KINKY BOOTS inspires and reminds us to dare to be different!

“Sometimes, the best way to fit in is to stand out!”
