Taylor Swift Fanned Out Over Todrick Hall After Seeing ‘Kinky Boots’ On Broadway

At this point, a ‘gram with Taylor Swift can do a lot for a person’s career. With over 93 million followers and a beyond-devoted fanbase, Taylor’s followers are more than eager to follow what she’s up to, who she might be dating, and what music, theatre, and art she’s consuming.

So you bet Todrick Hall and the rest of the cast from the musical Kinky Boots are pretty thrilled that Taylor and her brother Austin went to see their show last night, and Instagrammed the whole thing.

Taylor posted not just one — see above — but two photos with Youtube sensation Hall, who recently joined the cast to play the role of Lola.

“Okay. Went to see @todrick in Kinky Boots tonight and you just need to go see it,” Taylor captioned her initial photo. “Not trying to be bossy. But you need to. Congrats also to Haven Burton, Aaron C. Finley and the rest of that RIDICULOUSLY FLAWLESS CAST.”

Then she shared another emoji-laden pic of the two of them:


For his part, Todrick was just as thrilled by the meeting, praising Taylor for how sweet she was to his cast, and also shouting out Taylor’s brother:

“Thank you @taylorswift for coming to see @kinkybootsbway tonight & being so sweet to each and every cast and crew member,” Hall wrote. “You are a true class act and I am proud to call you my friend. ? shout out to Austin lookin’ sexy in the background!”

He captioned their other pic with lyrics from “Wildest Dreams.” (which I will continue to argue is the best song off 1989)

He’s right, too, while she was there Taylor took the time to pose for photos with even the littlest member of the cast:

The musical was written by Harvey Fierstein and has sixteen original songs by Cyndi Lauper. It has won six Tonys and won the Grammy for Best Musical Theater album in 2014. The plot follows the tale of a factory owner and a “fabulous entertainer” (Hall) who team up to save the factory by embracing their differences.

It’s currently running on Broadway and tickets are available here. I wouldn’t be surprised if there’s a Taylor-related spike in sales next week.
