Casting directors Bernard Telsey and Justin Huff assemble a cast of hard-working musical theater actors for Tony-winning "Kinky Boots."
Everybody say yeah! The Cyndi Lauper tuner “Kinky Boots” pulled what many saw as an upset over the West End hit “Matilda” for the best musical trophy at the 67th annual Tony Awards at Radio City Music Hall on Sunday night.
“Hannah Arendt” at Film Forum; “Balanchine Festival Red”; a Q&A with Tony nominee Billy Porter; the Elton John installment of Birdland Jazz’s “The Pop Show”; and “The Scottsboro Boys” at the Ahmanson Theatre are some of the things we’re looking forward to this week.
Based on the 2005 film, “Kinky Boots”—songs by Cyndi Lauper, book by Harvey Fierstein, direction and choreography by Jerry Mitchell, and starring a powerhouse Billy Porter—works.
