Wayne Brady sashays away into the sunset after a successful run on Broadway as ‘Lola’ in the Tony award winning Kinky Boots. The hit musical produced by Daryl Roth and Hal Luftig has pegged Alan Mingo, Jr. to take over the role beginning March 29, 2016.

 

Mingo is no stranger to the role of Lola as he has been playing this role in the Toronto production to rave reviews.

Mingo’s  previous Broadway credits include “Sebastian” in Disney’s The Little Mermaid (Original Broadway cast member) and “Tom Collins” in Rent.  While Mingo is excited to join the new cast on Broadway, leaving the Toronto cast wasn’t easy.

Inspired by true events, Kinky Boots tells the story of Charlie Price, who inherits his father’s shoe factory. Looking to save the family business, Charlie turns to a fabulously fashionable new friend – cabaret star Lola – who gives him an outrageous idea that could change both their destinies.

We are sure that Mingo will continue to excel in the role of ‘Lola’ for Broadway audiences. You can catch Kinky Boots at the Al Hirschfeld Theatre in New York at let us know what you think of Mingo’s performance.
