Cyndi Lauper Wins Best Score Tony Award For ‘Kinky Boots’

f0abed5b31895fedb4170d278b8e54b9 Cyndi Lauper Wins Best Score Tony Award For ‘Kinky Boots’

Pop icon, Emmy winner and Grammy winner Cyndi Lauper has a new descriptor to add to her already-impressive resume: Tony winner. The “True Colors” diva picked up the statue for Best Score at New York City’s Radio City Music Hall during the 67th annual Tony Awards, for her work on the smash musical Kinky Boots. The production was the most-nominated show this year, after being recognized in 13 categories.

Lauper, who penned the music and lyrics for Kinky Boots, was visibly teary-eyed as the camera panned to her in the audience when the nominees for Best Score were named. And when presenter Jesse Tyler Ferguson announced her as the winner (and comically quipped, “Girl, you’re gonna have fun tonight!”), Lauper looked absolutely stunned. Watch below!

“I can’t say I wasn’t practicin’ in front of the shower curtain for a couple days for this speech,” Lauper joked on stage as she accepted her award. Among those she thanked was Harvey Fierstein, who wrote the book for Kinky Boots. (Fierstein lost out on the award to Matilda The Musical‘s Dennis Kelly.)

Kinky Boots director Jerry Mitchell also picked up a Tony for Best Choreography, while the production won for Leading Actor In A Musical (Billy Porter), Best Sound Design Of A Musical and Best Orchestrations.

This week Cyndi hits the road for a month-long tour celebrating the 30th anniversary of her breakthrough 1983 album She’s So Unusual.
