A pairing of over-the-top stars such as Harvey Fierstein and Cyndi Lauper could only lead to theatrical solid gold... right? We'll find out soon enough, because the two are teaming up for a new musical, Kinky Boots.
Producers Daryl Roth and Hal Luftig announced today that Kinky Boots, a new musical that brings together four-time Tony Award-winner Fierstein and Grammy Award-winning rock icon Lauper, will have its pre-Broadway world premiere in Chicago this fall.
Directed and choreographed by Tony Award-winner Jerry Mitchell, Kinky Boots will play at Chicago's Bank of America Theatre in October 2012 before a planned move to Broadway.
