NEW YORK — Fresh off its Tony Award-winning night, "Kinky Boots" is planning a national tour that will kick off in Las Vegas in September.

Producers said Thursday the tour will start at the Smith Center for the Performing Arts. No other cities were announced but producer Daryl Roth said in a statement it will go "from coast to coast."

"Kinky Boots" is based on a real-life shoe factory that struggles until it finds new life in drag footwear. It has songs by Cyndi Lauper and a story by Harvey Fierstein. It won six Tonys on Sunday, including best musical.
