Kinky Boots

Lauper picked up a 2013 Tony Award for her score, and the show walked off with the top prize: Best Musical of 2013. On April 3, 2016, the West End production in London added three more gongs to the show’s trophy cabinet when it picked up three Olivier Awards, including Best New Musical and Best Costume Design (Gregg Barnes).
