Burdened with his family’s failing shoe factory upon his father’s death, Charlie Price is faced with a choice: sell out, or innovate. A chance meeting with drag queen Lola gets Charlie’s gears turning, and soon a partnership is born between the staid Englishman and vivacious queen.

Based on the 2005 film of the same name, the musical Kinky Boots puts a heartwarming spin on the true story of Steve Pateman’s transformation of Northampton’s W.J. Brooks factory into a purveyor of fetish footwear. With a book by Tony Award-winner Harvey Fierstein and music by ’80s pop queen Cyndi Lauper, the crowd-pleasing production soared to Broadway success, nabbing six Tonys, which shimmer almost as brightly as Lola’s bright red, thigh-high heels.

$40-$85, 8pm Fri June 7 & Sat June 8, 2pm Sat June 8 & Sun June 9, The Majestic Theatre, 224 E. Houston St., (210) 226-3333, majesticempire.com.
