CHICAGO ( June 19, 2017 ) — Broadway In Chicago and TROIKA Entertainment are thrilled to announce that back by popular demand, KINKY BOOTS, the smash-hit musical that brings together four-time Tony® Award-winner Harvey Fierstein ( Book ) and Grammy® Award-winning rock icon Cyndi Lauper ( Tony Award-winner for Best Score for KINKY BOOTS ), will return to Chicago at Broadway In Chicago's Cadillac Palace Theatre ( 151 W. Randolph ), for a limited one-week engagement Jan. 22 — 27, 2019. KINKY BOOTS originated its Pre-Broadway World Premiere in Chicago in Oct. 2012.

The winner of six 2013 Tony® Awards, including Best Musical, KINKY BOOTS features a Tony® Award-winning score by Cyndi Lauper, a book by Tony® Award-winner Harvey Fierstein, and direction and choreography by Tony® Award-winner Jerry Mitchell. KINKY BOOTS tells the uplifting and heartwarming tale of Charlie Price, a young man reluctantly taking over his family's struggling shoe factory and looking for a fresh idea. Charlie meets and finds inspiration in Lola, and together they discover that it takes a good friend to make a great pair.

KINKY BOOTS has won every major Best Musical Award and is represented around the world with the Tony Award-winning Broadway company now in its fifth year, an Olivier Award-winning production in London, an Australian production that opened in October 2016, and an upcoming production in Germany. Other previous productions include a past US National Tour that played more than 80 cities, an Award-winning extended run in Toronto, two productions in Korea, and a Japanese language production. The Grammy Award-winning Original Broadway Cast Recording of KINKY BOOTS is available on Sony Masterworks Broadway.

Inspired by true events, KINKY BOOTS takes you from a gentlemen's shoe factory in Northampton to the glamorous catwalks of Milan. Charlie Price is struggling 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.

The National Tour of KINKY BOOTS is produced by TROIKA Entertainment. The creative team includes Tony® Award nominee David Rockwell ( Scenic Design ), Tony® Award-winner Gregg Barnes ( Costume Design ), Tony Award-winner Kenneth Posner ( Lighting Design ), Tony® Award-winner John Shivers ( Sound Design ), Josh Marquette ( Hair Design ), Brian Strumwasser ( Make-up Design ), Joy Dewing Casting and Wojcik/Seay Casting ( Casting ), DB Bonds ( Associate Director ), and Rusty Mowery ( Associate Choreographer ). KINKY BOOTS features Musical Supervision by Roberto Sinha, and Arrangements and Orchestrations by Tony and Grammy Award-winner Stephen Oremus.
