Behind the Heels, Wigs, and Drag Makeup in Tony-Nominated Musical Kinky Boots
Kinky Boots, the Broadway musical with music and lyrics by Cyndi Lauper, is the story of a drag queen and a shoe factory owner who make some fabulous boots together--and learn a few life lessons in the process. The show is uplifting, and obviously has struck a chord with critics and theater-goers alike, as evidenced by its 13 Tony Award nominations, including one for Best Costume Design. Of course, the costumes, hair, and makeup play a crucial role.
