Talk about making those high heels work…

 

As announced on his 30th birthday, Panic! At The Disco’s very own Brendon Urie is to make his broadway debut beginning in May with the glam musical ‘Kinky Boots’. He will play the shoe factory owner, Charlie Price. Starring in a broadway musical has been on Urie’s bucket list for a long time and he is “incredibly excited” to be given this opportunity. “I’m a huge fan of Kinky Boots and musical theatre, and am honored to be joining this cast,” said Urie in a statement. He will be performing  through August 6th at the Al Hirschfeld theatre.

 

“Based on a true story and the indie film of the same name, Kinky Boots follows young Brit Charlie Price, who abandons his family’s shoe factory to live with his demanding girlfriend in London. After the unexpected death of his father, Charlie returns to the struggling factory and finds it’s up to him to figure out a way to keep the business alive. Enter Lola, a fabulous drag queen, who gives Charlie the idea to create ladies’ shoes for men. Soon, the factory is turning out “kinky boots” under the supervision of Charlie and Lola, but can this harebrained scheme actually work? And can these two extremely different men find a common ground and become real friends?” -Broadway’s description of Kiny Boots.

 

With how dramatic Brendon Urie can be and his tremendous vocal range, we are sure he will do an amazing job in his debut. We only have one question.. Can he recreate a british accent? I guess we’ll find out this May!
