Kinky Boots: About the Creators

Inspired by true events, Kinky Boots tells the story of a young man who inherits his father’s shoe factory and enlists the assistance of the fabulous cabaret performer, Lola, to help him save the floundering business. Together, they begin to create shoes that rock the runways of Milan in a wild, heart-warming ride with music and lyrics by Cyndi Lauper and a book by Broadway favorite Harvey Fierstein.

Cyndi Lauper is probably best known as the smash hit recording artist who topped the charts with such classics as “Girls Just Want to Have Fun,” “Time After Time,” and “True Colors.” Her first album “She’s So Unusual,” won her a Grammy Award for Best New Artist, and made her the first woman in history to have four top-10 singles from a debut album. She has gone on to release 10 studio albums in total, with her most recent album topping the Billboard charts for 14 consecutive weeks. All told, she has garnered 14 Grammy Awards, 2 American Music Awards, and 18 MTV Awards. She’s also a performer, having made her Broadway debut in 2006 alongside Alan Cumming in Threepenny Opera.

Book writer, Harvey Fierstein, is also the author of Newsies, Torch Song Trilogy, and La Cage aux Folles, among many others. His writing has garnered him a number of Drama Desk Awards, OBIE Awards, and Tony Awards, as well as a plethora of nominations. He has been published in The New York Times, TV Guide, and The Huffington Post. As an actor, he is best known for his roles in such films as Mrs. Doubtfire, and Independence Day, and for his Tony-award winning performance on Broadway in Hairspray. He is also the writer of a children’s book entitled The Sissy Duckling, which is now in its fifth publication.
