YAY for seeing people’s dreams come true!

There’s going to be a day soon in which YouTubers aren’t classified as social media stars anymore, because they’re too busy taking over the music, movie and book industry. And now, joining in with the overly-talented folks taking their career away from the webpage, Todrick Hall will be joining the cast of Kinky Boots for their latest Broadway production… playing none other than Lola!

Announced to his Instagram fanbase on the 16th, Todrick shared the story of his Broadway debut; “When I was 20-years-old, I had the honour of making my Broadway debut in “The Colour Purple”. Since then I have had the opportunity to travel the world, work for my idol Beyonce, compete on American Idol, star in my own show on MTV, and perform in my own international concert tours… but my heart still belongs to Broadway”.

The story of Kinky Boots follows a man called Charlie and his attempt to save his father’s shoe business, and luckily he gets a little bit of help from cabaret performer and drag queen, Lola! With music and lyrics by Cyndi Lauper, the show will debut on November 1st and tickets are available now.
