Everybody Say Yeah! Tony-Winning Kinky Boots Steps Up on Broadway Balances America

These boots were made for walking...on your television screens! Broadway Balances America, the special six-part series airing on The Balancing Act on Lifetime Television, continues its second season on September 22 (the episode will re-air on September 29) with an exclusive look at Broadway's smash-hit musical Kinky Boots. Tune in as The Balancing Act takes viewers behind the scenes of the Tony-winning musical, featuring interviews with the show's cast and creatives.

In this episode, The Balancing Act’s Amber Milt digs into Kinky Boots’ uplifting message of embracing individuality and being true to yourself, proving that sometimes the best way to fit in is to stand out! Milt sits down with Tony and Grammy Award-winning pop icon Cyndi Lauper to discuss the powerful story the show is bringing to audiences across the globe. Viewers will be treated to interviews with Kyle Taylor Parker, the triple threat performer who plays Lola in the Kinky Boots national tour, and Daryl Roth and Hal Luftig, Kinky Boots’ Tony Award-winning producers.

The segment also offers a glimpse into the production’s “Raise You Up” Community Youth Program, a partnership with the True Colors Fund that gives LGBT youth and their allies a look at careers in the commercial theatre industry by spending a day with professionals involved in the show—from the advertising and marketing teams to the dance captain who teaches them how to strut their stuff on a Broadway stage.

Kinky Boots follows a struggling shoe factory owner who works to turn his business around with help from the most unlikely person. Together, these two become an unstoppable team, and find that they have more in common than they ever dreamed possible...proving that when you change your mind about someone, you can change your whole world.
