Home Uncategorized Cyndi Lauper’s “Kinky Boots” Musical Recoups Investment in Record 30 Weeks

Cyndi Lauper’s Tony winning Broadway musical “Kinky Boots” has recouped its investment in a record 30 weeks. The show was capitalized at $13.5 million. In June, “Kinky Boots”– written with Harvey Fierstein–won six Tony Awards including Best Musical, Best Score, and Best Actor for Billy Porter. It co-stars Stark Sands, who’s also in this winter’s Coen Bros. movie “Inside Llewyn Davis.” Daryl Roth and Hal Luftig are the proud producers. By the way, not only is “Kinky Boots” in the top 3 of the Broadway box office every week, the CD recording of the show is a monster hit. I think now Cyndi, the hardest working woman in pop music, can come off the road and enjoy her success!
