DENVER (CBS4)– The Tony Award winning musical “Kinky Boots” is giving audiences in Denver something to remember that’s deeper than flashy costumes or catchy songs.

Kinky Boots won the Tony Award for Best Musical. Now the Broadway show is getting ready to hit the stage in Denver.

The plot follows an English man trying to save his shoe factory by any means possible. He begins to make fashion footwear for drag queens. That’s when the show gets interesting.

“I think what they end up leaving with is song, dance, entertainment and a whole lot of joy,” said Kyle Taylor Parker who plays Lola. “The show is so moving and it’s about real people, it has a palpable heartbeat. I think that’s what everyone is responding to.”

Writer Harvey Fierstein and Cyndi Lauper have created a show that’s hugely entertaining and touches your heart.

“People aren’t expecting the show to have as much heart as it does. The show, it has such a sweet spot in it. Obviously it’s a spectacular, fabulous show that has people up on their feet but I think that’s what surprises people. How moving the show is,” said Steven Booth who plays Charlie.

Kinky Boots opens Oct. 29 at the Buell Theatre and continues through Nov. 9.
