QUOTES
Sometimes audiences just wanna have fun. And you'd be a heel not to have fun at 'Kinky Boots'. One cause for celebration is the infectious Top 40-ish score by '80s pop star Cyndi Lauper. Another is Billy Porter, who portrays drag queen Lola with enough sequined swagger to make RuPaul look like a wallflower. Thanks to Porter's star-making turn, 'Kinky Boots' delivers some pumps-up kicks.
Review by Thom Geier from Entertainment Weekly

What we have, in 'Kinky Boots', is a well-fitted, well-staged toe-tapper in the contemporary big-Broadway idiom. It’s never boring; it’s never shocking; you are likely to leave entirely entertained and satisfied. Can’t argue with that.
Review by Christopher Bonanos from New York Magazine

The kicky crowd-pleaser 'Kinky Boots' is the very model of a modern major musical. [Cyndi] Lauper is a musical-theater natural, combining bright, infectious melodies with simple but effective lyrics. The overall effect is nigh irresistible; if you’ve been low about this season’s musicals, 'Kinky Boots' may be just the thing to get you back on your feet.
