The Tony Award Winning Broadway Show "Kinky Boots" is coming to the Stanley Theatre. In honor of the show, some local celebrities have decided to show off the red boots.

"Kinky Boots" is a Broadway Musical that's still on Broadway, and will be making a stop in Utica at the Stanley Theatre. The show runs September 6th, 7th, and 8th, at 7:30pm each night.

"Kinky Boots" is about a man struggling to live up to his father’s expectations and continue the family business. The factory’s future is now on shaky territory, but luckily help arrives in the form of Lola – an amazing performer who is in need of some new sturdy stilettos. This musical will have you singing along, moving, and it will wrap you into another world, and leave you feeling differently about the things in your own life. “Kinky Boots” also features songs from Grammy and Tony award winning pop icon Cyndi Lauper.

As the City of Utica and the surrounding area gets geared up for the show, some local well-known faces (including the City of Utica Mayor Rob Palmieri and Boilermaker President Tim Reed) have decided to try on the "Kinky Boots" and show their spirit for the musical. You can see them all in the gallery below:

Opening Night of "Kinky Boots" will also feature a Gala Event with proceeds going to the Q Center in Utica, to help the LGBTQ youth in our community. The Gala experience includes a walk down the red carpet to the Stanley Theatre, tickets to the show, and a special after party with the opportunity to mingle with the cast and crew of "Kinky Boots" at Ocean Blue.
