Product Review: The Kinky Boots Original Broadway Cast Album

kinky boots

The original cast album for Kinky Boots is out and we are in love.

As you’ll recall from the show’s reviews, the British accents may not be superb, but the heart behind this is so big and the performances so thrilling, you quickly don’t care. If you haven’t already seen the show, we won’t give away anything, but we will tell you that Lauper’s signature stylings shine brightly through every song. It’s Full Monty meets Rent meets meets Xanadu meets American Idiot meets Strictly Ballroom, and though sometimes silly, oh boy is it fun.

WARNING: Don’t listen to this album anywhere where you can’t dance along (with or without heels). Though it sometimes feels a bit 80s (or maybe because it does), you start by smiling, progress quickly into swaying and pretty soon are dancing all over the living room…

You’ll want this one to be part of your collection, so just let me hear you say yeah, yeah and order your own copy on amazon.com here.
