Cyndi Lauper prefers Broadway to the music industry

Thursday May 23, 2013

Cyndi Lauper says Broadway is a much more pleasant place to work than the music industry.

The Girls Just Wanna Have Fun singer teamed up with playwright Harvey Fierstein and director-choreographer Jerry Mitchell to make Kinky Boots, a musical adaptation of a British film about a drag queen who comes to the rescue of a flagging show factory.

Cyndi, who wrote the music for the Tony-award nominated show, revealed: "They don't aggravate you as much.

"The record companies gave me a lot of grief for a long, long time. These people wanted me to be part of their team. I was so flattered."

Kinky Boots has the most Tony Award nominations this year, with 13, just one ahead of Matilda: The Musical, including Best Musical and Best Original Score.
