Emmy winner and Grammy nominee Wayne Brady will step back into his heels as Lola in the Tony-winning Kinky Boots beginning March 5.

Brady, who will continue through April 26 at the Al Hirschfeld Theatre, will succeed J. Harrison Ghee, who will be temporarily leaving the show for another project. Ghee will return May 1.

For the first weeks of his limited run, Brady will appear opposite Scissor Sisters' Jake Shears, who plays Charlie Price through April 1, as well as Kirstin Maldonado, who takes on the role of Lauren through April 8.

“To say that I’m thrilled to step back into Lola’s fabulous shoes would be the understatement of the century!” Brady said in a statement. “Lola is a role of a lifetime for an actor, a true tour de force. In this current political and social climate, we need more people to see characters like Lola… unafraid to speak her mind and unabashedly true to herself. I can’t wait to join Jake Shears and Kirstin Maldonado onstage with the rest of the Kinky Boots family.”

Brady most recently starred as Aaron Burr in Hamilton in Chicago. He currently hosts CBS’ Let’s Make a Deal, which has earned him six Daytime Emmy Award nominations.
