WHAT AN EXPERIENCE

I was actually in town to watch my two alma maters play football against each other (Rutgers-Wisconsin) ... but for a precursor headed into Manhattan to see a show and have a wonderful dinner. With no expectations we all ventured in the Hirschfield Theatre to immediately find out (much to our chagrin) that Billy Porter is a "no show". And yet that's when the fun began ... my goodness ... what a pleasant surprise to witness the likes of TIMOTHY WARE .... I have seen 100s of shows in my 68 years .... but Timothy ... you will always be remembered. Halloween in "the Big Apple" and a performance of a lifetime. Kudos are in order ... as what you did on October 31st, 2014 was splendid beyond words. You bring a new meaning to the words "Broadway Musical" .... and as you yourself quoted, "Just continue to be yourself, because everyone else is taken (and there aren't many who can come close to what you do). As a final note, anyone I meet interested in drama as a career ... I will be encouraging them to attend Alabama State ... for there must be something there that is wonderful in the water.

Standby Lola

When entering the thereafter last week I was disappointed to notice that Billy Porter was out and Timothy Ware would fill his role. We traveled from Missouri to see Mr. Porter's performance. By the time Mr. Ware sang the sex is in the heel, I was all in. His was a tour-de-force performance. His LOLA was bold and strong, while his Simon allowed the audience to empathize with his challenges as a child and adult! The rest of the cast was also first rate. The score knocks you through the back of the theater. The costumes and sets scream big budget musical. Loved Kinky Boots and Timothy Ware has a new fan! Thanks to all at the Hirschfeld for a great afternoon of theater!

Kinky Boots, a must see musical

I bring groups to Broadway several times a year, seeing mostly
musicals. Kinky Boots for exceptional, fun, colorful and soooo creative. The cage in the center of the stage was phenomenal, designed by a genius. And the songs sung by Billy Porter, awesome in delivery and scoring. Loved the play.

Best show ever

By far the best show I have ever seen on Broadway. There is nothing that doesn't deserve an excellent rating. There should have been two Tonys for best actor.

Pure Fun

Everything about this musical is great - the score, book, direction, choreography, wigs/makeup/costumes, lighting, sets, talent. Stark Sands and Billy Porter are perfect. Annaleigh Ashford was hilarious and has an amazing voice. The show was funny and heartfelt, pure fun for 2 1/2 hours. The entire audience gave a standing ovation at the curtain call with thunderous applause, audiences are going crazy for this fun show!
