CD Review: “Kinky Boots” (Original Broadway Cast Recording)

CD Kinky Boots

This is a splashly, colorful, drag-filled joyride of a show, with a soft-sold message of tolerance that never gets in the way of high-energy production numbers. Those numbers sound truly smashing on this lovingly produced cast recording, which has the bright energy and finish of a rock record. Cyndi Lauper’s music is appropriately emotional and propulsive. “History of Wrong Guys” is marvellously specific; delivered with wonderful comic timing by Annaleigh Ashford, it’s one of the album’s high points. Listening to this is almost as much as fun as seeing Kinky Boots, something not every cast recording achieves!
