    High Spirits, Higher Heels

    Ben Brantley

    April 4, 2013: “Kinky Boots,” with a book by Harvey Fierstein and directed by Jerry Mitchell, is a reminder that you don’t always have to be a masochist to enjoy being smashed by a steamroller. From the outset, this show comes rushing at you head-on, all but screaming: “Love me! Love me!” It’s a shameless emotional button pusher, presided over — be warned — by that most weary of latter-day Broadway archetypes, a strong and sassy drag queen who dispenses life lessons like an automated fortune cookie.

    MARK KENNEDY

    April 4, 2013: The show that opened Thursday at the Al Hirschfeld Theatre is so full of good will - did you expect anything less from Lauper or Fierstein? - that only a curmudgeon could walk out and not want to hug the crowds in Times Square, even the sketchy ones in cartoon costumes.

    'Kinky Boots' is a great fit for Broadway

    Chris Jones

    April 4, 2013: Even as the U.S. Supreme Court debates what is marriage, the sentimental and hugely enjoyable new Broadway musical "Kinky Boots" is debating the nature of manhood, with a fabulous twist. But as timely as this show suddenly seems to be — it posits an ideal world according to Harvey Fierstein, wherein struggle leads to self-acceptance, which leads in turn to public triumph — there's nothing whatsoever that's time-bound about Cyndi Lauper's cheerfully audacious, toe-tapping score.

    Kinky Boots: Theater Review

    David Rooney

    April 4, 2013: Lauper has made a career out of celebrating her extravagant individuality and everybody else's with the unpretentious chutzpah of a true-blue Queens girl. The fact that her infectious spirit shines through every number in her first Broadway musical score is unquestionably the chief asset of Kinky Boots, helping to elevate the show above its familiar template.

    Kinky Boots, Al Hirschfeld Theatre, New York – review

    Brendan Lemon

    April 4, 2013: The production would be unthinkable without Porter. Lola’s put-downs are priceless even when her jokes as written are not, and the actor transcends the generic Whitney and RuPaul touches to deliver a roaring success of a performance. The audience, which gets a rousing Mamma Mia!-like finale, goes home happy.
