After winning six Tony Awards in 2013, Kinky Boots comes to 5th Avenue Theatre in October.

5th Avenue Theater has announced its new lineup of musicals for the 2014-15 season, which features by new Broadway sensation Kinky Boots. The 2013 Tony winner for Best Musical follows a struggling British shoe factory owner who teams up with a drag queen to save his business through the production of the titular kinky boots. The musical also took home Tonys for Cyndi Lauper's score and Jerry Mitchell's choreography. The touring production will high kick across the 5th Ave stage October 7–26.

The other marquee performance is the world premiere of Something Rotten! (Apr 29–May 24, 2015). Set in Renaissance England, the madcap comedy follows a fictional origin story of musical theater. In an effort to compete with their contemporary William Shakespeare, two playwright brothers who seek out a soothsayer who tells them to create a play with songs. Casey Nicholaw, the Tony-winning co-director and choreographer of The Book of Mormon, returns to 5th Avenue to helm the debut production.

The full season lineup includes old box office favorites A Chorus Line, Rogers and Hammerstein's Carousel, and Grease. 5th Avenue teams up with ACT next March to present the early off-Broadway precursor to the jukebox musical, Jacques Brel is Alive and Well and Living in Paris. The holiday season also gets some pep (and a Red Ryder BB Gun) via A Christmas Story, the Musical.
