Kinky Boots, Matilda, and More!

Spring is here and that means it's time for the 2013 Tony nominations. This year, Broadway was all about Kinky Boots, which received the most nods. It was closely followed by Matilda, Pippin and the classic, Cinderella.

Kinky Boots

The 2013 Tony Award nominees have been announced. Leading the pack is Kinky Boots, a musical based on the 2005 film of the same name. It's a co-production between stage veteran Harvey Fierstein and Cyndi Lauper — yes, that Cyndi Lauper. Boots earned an impressive 13 nominations.
