According to the video, Urie says this role is an absolute dream come true, and he hopes audiences feel as strongly about the show as he does.

“I used to dream about this day. Just being a part of musical theater, so this literally is a dream come true,” Urie said in a behind-the-scenes clip ahead of his first performance.

“What drew me to the show was when I saw it, I knew I wanted to be a part of it. It moved me so much, that end moment, the finale. I felt like, I want to get up and shout and celebrate life. That feeling resonated within me, and I wanted to be a part of it. The message is so clear. It’s so relatable,” he added.

“When audiences leave Kinky Boots, I hope they feel that passion that I felt, that was like a fire inside of my chest. If you want to laugh, if you want to cry, if you want to feel something so strong at the end of a show, then come to the show. It’s just incredible.”

In his official Broadway announcement, he talked more about the infamous boots. (And just how fitting they are, with “Don’t Threaten Me With A Good Time,” of course!)

“I’m very excited to announce that I’m joining the cast of Kinky Boots this summer on Broadway. That’s crazy to say because it’s been on my bucket list for the longest time, and it really is a dream come true,” Urie says.

“Plus you guys get to see me in those heels now, so that’s pretty cool. I really hope you guys make it out.”
