Broadway World is reporting that YouTube sensation Todrick Hall will star in the smash musical “Kinky Boots” beginning November 1 , 2016 through March 5, 2017.

As previously reported, “Kinky Boots” tells the story of Charlie Price, who inherits a shoe factory from his father. To save the business, Charlie forms an unlikely partnership with cabaret performer and drag queen, Lola. With Lola’s help, Charlie develops a plan to produce a line of high-heeled boots. In the process, he and Lola discover that they are not so different after all.

The musical is based on the 2005 British film of the same name and featured Oscar-nominated actor, Chiwetel Ejiofor as the fabulous drag performer, ‘Lola.’ The Broadway  version of the show has starred Wayne Brady and Billy Porter, who won a Tony award for his portrayal in 2013.

Hall is best known for his over the top and uberly creative YouTube videos including his flashmob performance of Beyoncé’s “End of Time.” The video, which now has over 14 million views, received so much attention that the Queen Bee herself made a video congratulating Hall on a job well done.

Hall has also appeared in “The Color Purple” and “Memphis” and is currently touring his new musical, “Straight Outta Oz.” He also served as a special guest judge on “RuPaul’s Drag Race.”

CONGRATS!
