Waterbury – Kinky Boots, Broadway’s Tony Award-winning high-heeled created by four-time Tony® Award-winner Harvey Fierstein and Grammy® Award-winning rock icon Cyndi Lauper, kicks the Waterbury Palace Theater’s Webster Broadway Series into high gear with seven performances, December 6-11, 2016.  Tickets for smash-hit musical, which is sponsored in part by Hoffman Auto Group, go on sale Thursday, Jun. 23 at 10a.m and range in price from $58 to $78.  Tickets can be purchased by phone at 203-346-203, online at www.palacetheaterct.org, or in person at the Palace Theater Box Office, 100 East Main Street in Waterbury.

Before the Thursday, Dec. 8 and Friday, Dec. 9 evening performances, and after the Sunday, Dec. 11 matinee performance, patrons are invited to join Verbena Catering for a four-course pre-fixe dinner in the theater’s Poli Club. Dinner is $65 per person, which includes tax, service fees, coffee, and tea.  Seating is limited, and reservations can be made when purchasing tickets through the Box Office.   

Inspired by true events, Kinky Boots takes audiences from a gentlemen’s shoe factory in Northampton to the glamorous catwalks of Milan. Featuring the Tony-Award winning “Best Score” by Cyndi Lauper, the show follows Charlie Price as he struggles to live up to his father’s expectations and continue the family business of Price & Son. With the factory’s future hanging in the balance, help arrives in the unlikely but spectacular form of Lola, a fabulous performer in need of some sturdy new stilettos.

Kinky Boots has won every major “Best Musical Award” and is represented around the world with the Tony Award-winning Broadway company, a North American First National Tour that launched in September 2014, and a London production that opened in September 2015. Upcoming productions include a Japanese production opening in July 2016 and a Melbourne production opening in October 2016. Previous productions include extended runs in Toronto and Korea, where a return engagement is planned for 2016.
