Kinky Boots is Coming to BroadwayHD for Streaming

“Everybody Say Yeah” because musical theatre enthusiasts will soon be able to stream the long-running, hit musical Kinky Boots in the comfort of their own home. BroadwayHD, the premiere streaming service catering to the fans of live theatre, will be adding the Tony-winning Best Musical to its catalogue. On July 15, 2019, the Cyndi Lauper/Harvey Fierstein hit based on the film written by Geoff Deane and Tom Firth can be enjoyed over and over again.

BroadwayHD co-founders Stewart F. Lane and Bonnie Comley said, “Kinky Boots was a groundbreaking and innovative production from a team of some of the most brilliant minds in entertainment.  It not only deserved to be center stage on Broadway and the West End, but to also have a truly global audience.  With this original film capture, we are not only able to bring the show exclusively to our service so that it is more accessible for anyone to see, but we were also able to artfully film the West End production so that viewers at home on their couches feel like they have the best seat in the house!”

Kinky Boots features a celebrated score by 80s pop legend and Tony-winner Cyndi Lauper, a moving and funny book by Tony-winning playwright and actor Harvey Fierstein, and direction and choreography by Tony-winner Jerry Mitchell. The musical originally opened on Broadway in April of 2013 where it promptly was nominated for 13 Tony Awards, taking home 6 awards including Best Musical. It then went on to run for 2,505 performances and then receive an acclaimed, Olivier Award-winning production in London’s West End.

“Since the first performance of Kinky Boots, hardly a day has passed without my receiving a thank you message from someone whose spirits were raised up by the show,” Fierstein said. “Kinky Boots has been playing in big cities all over the world but now, thanks to this live capture, it will reach people a whole new audience who can watch it from the comfort of their own homes. I am beyond excited!”

“Inspired by true events, Kinky Boots tells the story of two people with nothing in common—or so they think.  Charlie (played by Olivier Award nominee Killian Donnelly) is a factory owner struggling to save his family business, and Lola (played by Matt Henry, who won an Oliver Award for the role) is a fabulous entertainer with a wildly exciting idea.  With a little compassion and a lot of understanding, this unexpected pair learn to embrace their differences and create a line of sturdy stilettos unlike any the world has ever seen! But in the end, their most sensation achievement is their friendship.”

BroadwayHD is making good on its promise to keep their platform stocked with amazing live-theatre productions. Recent titles also include 42nd Street, A Night with Janis Joplin, Ruthless: The Musical, and She Loves Me, the first ever live stream of a Broadway show which earned BroadwayHD a Guinness World Record.
