MADISON (WKOW) -- Kinky Boots, the smash-hit musical that brings together four-time Tony Award-winner Harvey Fierstein and Grammy Award-winning rock icon Cyndi Lauper is now in Madison.

The show opened Tuesday at Overture Center for the Arts and runs through Sunday, July 17.

On Thursday, Tiffany Engen who plays "Lauren" in the production stopped by Wake Up Wisconsin to talk about the show and to perform.

Inspired by true events, Kinky Boots takes you from a gentlemen’s shoe factory in Northampton to the glamorous catwalks of Milan. Charlie Price is struggling to live up to his father’s expectations and continue the family business of Price & Son. With the factory’s future hanging in the balance, help arrives in the unlikely but spectacular form of Lola, a fabulous performer in need of some sturdy new stilettos.

Tickets can be purchased at overturecenter.org, in person at the ticket office or by phone at 608.258.4141. 

Kinky Boots is presented by Overture Center and Broadway Across America as part of the Broadway Series, with support from Community Partner Rare Steakhouse.
