Kerrang! (UK) - - News -

WHEN BREN­DON Urie guest-edited this mag­a­zine last year, he broke his very own ex­clu­sive: that his dream was to per­form on Broad­way.and last week, it be­came a re­al­ity, when the Panic! At The Disco front­man an­nounced he’d be join­ing the cast of Kinky Boots, from May 26 to Au­gust 6 at the Al Hirschfeld Theatre in Newyork.

‘I lost a bet to a guy in a chif­fon skirt / But I make these high heels work,’ sings Bren­don on Don’t Threaten Me With A Good Time, and dur­ing his stint in the show he’ll be mak­ing those high heels work for real. See, the char­ac­ter he’ll be play­ing is Char­lie Price, who in­her­its his dad’s shoe fac­tory and gets pally with a drag queen called Lola.to­gether the pair set about pro­duc­ing a line of high-heeled boots. Um, kinky ones…

“This has been on my bucket list for the long­est time and it re­ally is a dream come true,” said the singer in a video on Twit­ter.“i’m just so in­cred­i­bly ex­cited to be join­ing Kinky Boots on Broad­way. That’s wild! Plus you guys get to see me in those heels now (laughs). So that’s pretty cool. I re­ally hope you guys make it out.”

Don’t worry, Bren­don, we’ll make it out even if we have to sell all our shoes for air fare.
