North Shore Music Theatre will present the Tony-winning Cyndi Lauper-Harvey Fierstein musical Kinky Boots October 25-November 6 in Beverly, Massachusetts. Kevin P. Hill will direct and choreograph with music direction by Dan Rodriguez.

Julian Malone, Luke Hamilton, and Audrey Belle Adams—who starred in Theatre by the Sea's summer production of the hit musical in Wakefield, Rhode Island, will reprise their roles as, respectively, Lola, Charlie Price, and Lauren.

Other returning cast members include Dean Cestari as Harry, James Fairchild as Don, Billy Goldstein, Etta Grover as Nicola, Arnold Harper II as Simon Sr., Sara Kleist, Kevin B. McGlynn as George, Elora von Rosch, and James Andrew Walsh as Mr. Price. 

Tyler Dema, Miss Jaye, Pablo Pernia, Wyatt Slone, and Stephen Vaught will reprise their roles as Angels.

Joining the cast at North Shore will be Danny Adams as Richard, Vinny Andaloro, Mary Callanan as Trish, Tony Collins as an Angel, Christopher DeAngelis, Jennifer Dinolfo as the Milan Stage Manager, and Alaina Mills as Pat.

The production will also have scenic design by Kyle Dixon, original costume design by Gregg Barnes, costume coordination/additional costume design by Kelly Baker, lighting design by Jose Santiago, sound design by Adam Bates, original wig design by Josh Marquette, additional hair and wig design by Rachel Padula-Shufelt, production stage management by Stephen MacDonald, assistant stage management by Dakotah Wiley Horan, assistant choreography by Pablo Pernia, and assistant music direction by Robert L. Rucinski.

The winner of six 2013 Tony Awards including Best Musical, Kinky Boots features a Tony-winning score by Lauper and a book by Tony winner Fierstein. The production played 2,507 regular performances and 34 previews at the Al Hirschfeld Theatre.

The original Broadway company was headed by Billy Porter as indefatigable drag performer Lola, whose broken heel helps mend a broken wing for a foundering shoe-maker, originally played by Stark Sands. Both Porter and Sands were Tony-nominated for their performances; Porter won the Tony for Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role in a Musical, and director-choreographer Jerry Mitchell won his second career Tony Award for his choreography.

Matt Henry and Killian Donnelly led the West End premiere of Kinky Boots, which opened in September 2015 at the Adelphi Theatre. The Tony-winning musical recently made its Off-Broadway debut at Stage 42; read reviews for that production here.

The musical is based on the Miramax motion picture penned by Geoff Deane and Tim Firth.

Kinky Boots is produced for North Shore Music Theatre by owner-producer Bill Hanney, Kevin P. Hill (producing artistic director), and Matthew Chappell (associate producer/casting director).
