These boots were made for walking—but only for so far.

Producers have announced that the Tony-winning Broadway production of Kinky Boots, which celebrated its five-year anniversary in April, will close April 7, 2019.

When that final heel is kicked, Kinky Boots will have played 2,507 regular performances and 34 previews, becoming the 25th longest-running show in Broadway history.

Written by Harvey Fierstein with songs by Cyndi Lauper, Kinky Boots, based on the 2005 movie of the same name, tells the story of Charlie Price, a young man inspired by a drag queen named Lola when she takes over his family’s struggling shoe factory.

Directed and choreographed by Jerry Mitchell, the empowering musical won a total of six 2013 Tonys, including Best Musical, Best Choreography for Mitchell, and Best Score for Lauper.

“When we first set out to make this show, we never could have imagined the success it would have here on Broadway and around the world,” Fierstein and Lauper say in a joint statement. “We speak on behalf of the entire company when we say how grateful we are to the fans who have embraced our work across four continents, and counting!”

“I’ll never forget the very first performance of this show, back in Chicago in the fall of 2012,” adds Mitchell. “It was one of those magical nights in the theater, when the material connects with its audiences in exactly the way you hope for. It felt like a gift from the theater gods then, and it still does to this day.”

“In the years since, we have witnessed attitudes towards gender non-conformity start to change all across America in ways we couldn’t have begun to imagine in 2012,” Mitchell continues. “It’s never easy saying farewell to a beloved production, but knowing that Kinky Boots is leaving a more accepting world than the one it was born into is hugely gratifying for everyone involved.”

The current Broadway cast includes J. Harrison Ghee as Lola and Dancing With the Stars pro Mark Ballas as Charlie, roles originated by Tony winner Billy Porter and Stark Sands, respectively. Notable past guest stars include Brendon Urie, David Cook, Tyler Glenn, Wayne Brady, Todrick Hall, Jake Shears, and Kirstin Maldonado.

Kinky Boots will continue playing London’s West End and on tour around the world. The Grammy-winning original Broadway cast recording is also available.

Kinky Boots runs through April 7 at the Al Hirschfeld Theatre in New York.
