Demand is so high for the Broadway smash-hit musical Kinky Boots headed to Belk Theater as part of the PNC Broadway Lights in just a few weeks — the show has already booked its return engagement for later this year!

 “With ticket sales soaring right out of the gate for the premiere engagement of Kinky Boots in Charlotte, it was clear to us that our audiences needed a second chance to see this fantastic show,” explained Blumenthal President Tom Gabbard. “We are thrilled to announce that the show will return in December for a limited one-week run, and fans can get great seats well ahead of time.”

Kinky Boots will be making its return to Charlotte Dec. 29, 2015-Jan. 3, 2016. Tickets for the newly added engagement will go on sale to the public Friday, Feb. 20 at 10 a.m. Tickets will be available at the Belk Theater Box Office, by phone at 704.372.1000 and online at BlumenthalArts.org.

Kinky Boots is the smash-hit musical that brings together four-time Tony Award-winner Harvey Fierstein (book) and Grammy Award-winning rock icon Cyndi Lauper (Tony Award-winner for best score for Kinky Boots). Directed and choreographed by Tony Award-winner Jerry Mitchell, Kinky Boots opened on Broadway April 4, 2013, and continues to play to standing-room-only crowds nightly. The show, which has broken all box office records at the Hirschfeld Theatre, recouped its costs in October 2013, after just 30 weeks on Broadway.

Kinky Boots took home six 2013 Tony Awards, the most of any show in the season, including Best Musical, Best Score (Cyndi Lauper), Best Choreography (Jerry Mitchell), Best Orchestrations (Stephen Oremus) and Best Sound Design (John Shivers). The show also received the Drama League, Outer Critics Circle and Broadway.com Awards for best musical and the Grammy Award for best musical album, along with many other accolades.

In Kinky Boots, Charlie Price has reluctantly inherited his father’s shoe factory, which is on the verge of bankruptcy. Trying to live up to his father’s legacy and save his family business, Charlie finds inspiration in the form of Lola. A fabulous entertainer in need of some sturdy stilettos, Lola turns out to be the one person who can help Charlie become the man he’s meant to be. As they work to turn the factory around, this unlikely pair find that they have more in common than they ever dreamed possible, and they discover that when you change your mind about someone, you can change your whole world.
