Broadway musical 'Kinky Boots' finds itself in the black - recouping $13.5 million costs
NEW YORK, N.Y. - There's nothing kinky about the bottom line at "Kinky Boots."
Producers of the Tony Award-winning musical said Thursday it has recouped its $13.5 million capitalization in 30 weeks.
"Kinky Boots" is based on a real-life shoe factory that struggles until it finds new life in drag footwear. It has songs by Cyndi Lauper and a story by Harvey Fierstein. It won six Tonys, including best musical.
A national tour is planned to kick off in Las Vegas next September.
