I raved about the Harvey Weinstein and Cyndi Lauper Broadway Musical “Kinky Boots” right here months ago and I wrote this back in July “The acting is all good, all of it. Billy Porter was certainly good enough to deserve a Tony, so was Stark Sands whose white bread “oh Brad, oh dammit’ turns just dark enough towards the end. My personal fave is Annaleigh Ashford, a very funny comedienne.”

And while it is going to run for years and years perhaps now is as good a time as any to gobecause

1. Good tickets should be available post-NYE

and

2. Two of the three leads I just mentioned are leaving!

The Tony Award Winner Best Musical of 2013 are losing two great reasons to see the sucker. According to Theatermania:

“Stark Sands, who earned a Tony nomination for his leading role as Charlie Price will leave the cast on January 26. Andy Kelso, who currently plays Harry in the musical, will take over Sands’ role on January 28, while Jake Odmark (Spider-Man) will take over Kelso’s former roles. Jeanna de Waal (American Idiot) will play Charlie’s love interest, Lauren, beginning March 4, replacing the Tony-nominated Annaleigh Ashford, who is leaving to join Showtime’s Masters of Sex. Billy Porter will remain with the production, continuing his Tony-winning portrayal of Lola.”

If you haven’t heard Annaleigh sing “The History Of Wrong Guys”, it is one of the most wonderful things on Broadway, just funny and sweet and true and somehow you can hear Cyndi Lauper behind it as well…

So fork over a hundred bucks and go before it’s too late.
