Come to Broadway this spring to meet your favorite musicians as they take the stage in Kinky BootsBroadway Plus VIP Services gives you an all-access pass to meet the new stars of the show: Jake Shears of the band Scissor Sisters, or Kirstin Maldonado of the a capella supergroup Pentatonix.

Kinky Boots

Book with Broadway Plus and you’ll have premium seats in the center orchestra, a backstage meet-and-greet with Shears or Maldonado, a gift bag full of Kinky Boots-themed swag, and a complimentary beverage before the show. 

Kinky Boots tells the story of a young man named Charlie who inherits his father’s struggling shoe factory. The business transforms when Charlie’s new friend Lola persuades him to sell thigh-high stiletto boots to clients with a flair for the fabulous. Kinky Boots is full of fun, heart-warming songs that underscore the show's philosophy: “you change the world when you change your mind.”

 

Jake Shears will play the main character of Kinky Boots, Charlie Price, from January 8 until April 1, 2018. Kirstin Maldonado will play Lauren beginning February 2 and ending April 8.

Kinky Boots won six Tony Awards in 2013, including Best Musical. Pop legend Cyndi Lauper received a Tony for writing the score, and Harvey Fierstein wrote the book for the show. Tony winner Jerry Mitchell choreographs and directs. 

This year, the show celebrates its fifth year on Broadway. There is also a touring company sharing this uplifting show throughout the United States, as well as several other productions around the world.

Jake Shears, with Scott “Babydaddy” Hoffman, is one of the founding members of Scissor Sisters. The group’s biggest hit is “I Don’t Feel Like Dancin’,” which appeared on the 2006 album Ta-Dah. Shears helped write many of the group’s songs and is a gifted vocalist, which you’ll see in his Broadway debut! 

Pentatonix formed through the NBC program “The Sing-off” in 2011, with Kirstin Maldonado as one of the five founding members. Since then, the group has received three Grammy awards, and seven of their albums have hit the Top 10 on the Billboard 200 chart. Maldonado and her fellow members have achieved massive success on YouTube and in live performances worldwide.

So get your Broadway Plus access, meet the stars, and take a gander at those fabulous boots up-close!!
