If you don't live near NYC, or aren't going to visit anytime soon, you should take out the "Kinky Boots" movie from 2005. It's a pretty spectacular little show. You'll come away from the video thinking that the lead guy in that movie is pretty spectacular too. Mind you, it won't blow you away like the Broadway show, but it'll prepare you for this soundtrack disc.

There are so many reasons this show won the Tony, Cindi Lauper's score won the Tony, and so did Billy Porter who plays Lola.

Well, give Harvey Fierstein high credit for writing the book for the Broadway show, and for the producer's genius to get Cyndi Lauper to do the score. On so many levels, this is a great thing. One, Cyndi winning the Tony for the score, and first woman to do so. Two, for showing the multidimensional talent of Cyndi. How great is it that an 80's star, who's had a pretty great singing career, can totally blow it out with this musical endeavor. She is so very talented. When you hear the cast singing her music, those of you who know Cyndi's music can hear her melody lines, in fact, the way she runs her notes, in many of the songs. Quite challenging for the cast to sing I bet.

Kinky Boots, the show, is such a spectacular, uplifting concept. Shame if you can't see the show--I did in May 2013, and it was one of the most powerful, fun, entertaining, and positive Broadway shows I've seen in 30 years. It was a great theme in the movie from 2005 and even more meaningful today: all people have worth, to be understanding and accepting of folk's differences, the strength that comes from a team pulling together, that good things can come true (they saved the English old men's shoe factory by retooling and cranking out cross dressers high heeled Kinky Boots).

I will never look at a pair of boots or shoes the same way again. Kinky Boots makes me believe that shoes can truly be one of the most beautiful things in the world. "The Most Beautiful Thing In the World" is definitely one of my favorite songs. These are all superb songs written by Cyndi Lauper. Billy Porter shines in his role as Lola. Stark Sands is equally excellent as Charlie. Their duet "Everybody Say Yeah" is an upbeat number that makes me feel good. Stark Sands shines on the musical number "Soul Of A Man". Billy Porter sings a very moving song on the beautiful tune "Hold Me In Your Heart" "Raise You Up" and Just Be are two songs that make me feel empowered. This song celebrates a person's individuality and their right to do their own thing in life. "Sex In The Heel" are "In This Corner" are two songs that pump me up. Jennifer Perry sings on In This Corner. She has a strong voice and really stands out in her role as Trish. I love the funky feisty spirit of these songs. Kinky Boots is the best musical in many years. This cast recording is proof of that. I love this music.

Bought this one before seeing the show. After listening to it, I couldn't wait for my trip to NYC to see the show. You'll be bouncing along with more of the pop tunes and crying with the more insightful songs. Cyndi has done well with the score and deserved her Tony.

Cyndi Lauper proves to her audience that she still wants to have fun with this batch of uplifting and well crafted songs. And like a chameleon shows us her true colors again by her ability to create quality Broadway show tunes that can very well lead her to a Tony award. "Sex is in the Heels" is just a drop of her hat full of stars. Shine on Cyndi!

Kinky Boots and an amazing cast make this a very entertaining day/night in the theater. Billy Porter's fantastic
performance makes the rest of the cast shine even more. Fun listening and seeing. Run don't walk and enjoy.
