 Kinky Boots continues Season Two of six-part “Broadway Balances America” Series

Kinky Boots 

New York, NY – Broadway Across America’s collaboration with the award-winning morning show “The Balancing Act®” on the Lifetime® Channel continues with the second Season Two installment of the six-part series “Broadway Balances America” featuring the 2013 Tony Award®-winning Best Musical Kinky Boots. This new episode debuts on Tuesday, September 22 at 7:30AM (ET/PT) and will re-air on Tuesday, September 28 at 7:30AM (ET/PT).

“The Balancing Act®” correspondent Amber Milt hosts this feel-good segment which focuses on 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! Amber 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” on the Kinky Boots national tour, and Daryl Roth and Hal Luftig, Kinky Boots’ Tony Award®-winning producers. The segment 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.

The smash-hit musical Kinky Boots brings together four-time Tony Award®-winner Harvey Fierstein (Book), Grammy Award®-winning rock icon Cyndi Lauper (Tony Award® winner for Best Score for Kinky Boots), and Tony Award®-winner director/choreographer Jerry Mitchell.

Inspired by true events, Kinky Boots takes audiences from a gentlemen’s shoe factory in Northampton to the glamorous catwalks of Milan. Charlie Price is struggling to live up to his father’s expectations and continue the family business of Price & Son. With the factory’s future hanging in the balance, help arrives in the unlikely but spectacular form of Lola, a fabulous performer in need of some sturdy new stilettos.

Kinky Boots is represented around the world with the Broadway company now in its third year, a North American First National Tour that launched in September 2014, a Toronto production that opened in June 2015, a London production opening in September 2015 and a Melbourne production opening in October 2016. A Korean production of Kinky Boots ran from December 2014-February 2015. The Grammy Award®-winning Original Broadway Cast Recording of Kinky Boots is available on Sony Masterworks Broadway.

Kinky Boots took home six 2013 Tony Awards®, the most of any show in the season, including Best Musical, Best Score (Cyndi Lauper), Best Choreography (Jerry Mitchell), Best Orchestrations (Stephen Oremus) and Best Sound Design (John Shivers). The show also received the Drama League, Outer Critics Circle and Broadway.com Awards for Best Musical and the Grammy Award® for Best Musical Album, along with many other accolades.
