Bookmark and Share

Kinky Boots, the new smash hit Broadway musical that brings together four-time Tony Award-winner Harvey Fierstein (Book) and Grammy Award-winning rock icon Cyndi Lauper (Music & Lyrics), will be taking over the airwaves on Sirius XM this Memorial Day Weekend, offering a preview of the show's Original Broadway Cast Recording (Masterworks Broadway), one of the most anticipated Broadway CDs in years.

Sirius XM listeners will be the first to hear the new Kinky Boots recording before its Tuesday, May 28 release, and they'll get the scoop on the 13-time Tony nominated musical with in-studio conversations from Cyndi Lauper, Harvey Fierstein, Jerry Mitchell and the show's stars, Billy Porter, Stark Sands, and Annaleigh Ashford. They'll take over Sirius XM's 'On Broadway' channel all weekend long to play songs from the new album and some of their own favorite showtune picks. The Kinky Boots takeover weekend will have its grand finale on Monday night on the 'Showtime' channel, which will offer listeners the chance to hear the entire show, complete and uninterrupted, for the very first time.

Directed and choreographed by Tony Award-winner Jerry Mitchell, Kinky Boots began performances on Sunday, March 3, 2013 at the Al Hirschfeld Theatre (302 West 45th Street), and opened on Thursday, April 4, 2013.

Kinky Boots has been nominated for thirteen 2013 Tony Awards, including Best Musical, making it the most Tony-nominated show of the season. Already, the Outer Critics Circle and Drama League have named it Best Musical, and it won the Broadway.com Audience Choice Award for Favorite New Musical, among many other accolades.
