Broadway Musical ‘Kinky Boots’ Turns a Profit in 30 Weeks

Kinky

Producers of Tony Award-winning musical Kinky Boots are kicking up their heels:

Demonstrating once again that winning the Tony Award for best musical is a major asset at the box office, the hit Broadway show Kinky Boots has recouped its initial investment of $13.5 million in a remarkably swift 30 weeks of performances…

…Lead producers Daryl Roth and Hal Luftig confirmed the Broadway recoupment Thursday. The show officially opened at the Al Hirschfeld Theatre on April 4 following a month of previews. It has regularly been playing to capacity houses, grossing around $1.6 million a week thanks to the high volume of premium-priced tickets being sold. The cumulative box office total for the production recently passed the $40 million mark.

    I’d be happier if this show didn’t have a neutered drag queen as a central character. Only straight people are allowed love and sex on Broadway these days.

    why is everybody so bitter on this site’s comment section? Always saying something negative no matter what the article is about, quite disgusting if you ask me.

    I agree, this site is so eaten up with trolls it’s pretty unpleasant to read comments most of the time. They should switch to disqus so there wouldn’t be so many anon trolls.

    @Sundayboy – now that you’ve trashed both “Kinky Boots” and “The Glass Menagerie” could you please let us know what production you are currently employed by? I’m sure that many of us would be thrilled with the opportunity to see what must certainly be the most perfect show on Broadway. My money says the closest you are to a theatrical career is passing out handbills in Times Square.
