The Tony Award winning musical "Kinky Boots" is playing at Denver's Buell Theatre until Nov. 9.

It was adapted from a film based on the true story of a shoe-factory owner in working class England who takes over the struggling family business and saves it from bankruptcy by catering to a new niche market---boots for drag queens.

The musical won six Tonys, including best score by writer, composer and pop music icon Cyndi Lauper.
