Kinky Boots,” the Cyndi Lauper-Harvey Fierstein collaboration that won the best new musical Tony Award in 2013, will end its Broadway run next spring.

The show’s lead producers, Daryl Roth and Hal Luftig, said Friday night that the show’s final performance will be next April 7. At that point, the show will have had 34 preview and 2,507 regular performances, making it the 25th-longest-running Broadway production in history.

The musical has been a significant hit — it has grossed $297 million just on Broadway, and it is also currently on tours in North America and Britain, and playing in London and Hamburg, Germany. There have also been productions in Korea, Canada, Australia and Japan (where the show returns next spring).

The musical, adapted from a 2005 film, is an inspirational and rousing tuner about a young Englishman who decides to make boots for drag performers in an effort to save his family’s shoe factory. The show, which won six Tony Awards, features music and lyrics by Ms. Lauper, a book by Mr. Fierstein and direction by Jerry Mitchell.
