KINKY BOOTS Welcomes Mark Ballas!


The first time I saw KINKY BOOTS, I was just blown away. The music, the staging, the cast the energy, the message so I’m stoked to be here! There’s just a lot of it that I kind of relate to and identify with. It’s set in England, which is very dear to me cause that’s where I grew up. You know I’m half English. It’s cool to put on the English accent and go back to my high school and college days. I’ve been calling all my buddies who are from that area trying to get my dialect right. It’s just really exciting! Putting the boots on in act two is a riot. I didn’t realize how high they actually were, cause they’re up there! So I definitely had some Bambi ankles going on. I’m excited to get to hang out with people after the show and say “hi” and sign every playbill. It’s the moments like that, you know, that really make it all worthwhile. The message is just beautiful. You know, it doesn’t matter where you’re from, your race, sexual orientation whether you’re a drag queen or a factory worker, it’s just two people becoming friends and going on this journey together. Because they do have more in common than they would assume. I think that’s just how life is. It’s just a beautiful message, and we just really need that right now, and I’m honored to be a part of it.

  • I love Mark Ballas! 🙂

  • Mark needs to keep this look. He looks way better clean cut

  • Great job in those killer boots Mark!

  • Kinky Boots was a FANTASTIC show! The entire cast, led by Mark Ballas, was terrific. The story, the costumes, the color and sparkle, the dancing and superb voices, but most of all the message…I can't say one thing that could have been better. Top notch.
