No Business Like Shoe Business: Taylor Swift Visits Pal Todrick Hall at Kinky Boots on Broadway

These boots were made for walking (and dancing).

Taylor Swift paid a visit to pal and American Idol alum Todrick Hall on Wednesday as he starred in Broadway’s Kinky Boots in New York City.

Of course, no Thanksgiving Eve is complete without tons of photos with friends, and the 26-year-old singer posed for some hilarious shots with Hall still in full costume as Lola, a drag queen who turns the life of a shoemaker upside down when she helps him create incredible high-heeled boots. Swift also snapped photos with the rest of the cast while at the Al Hirschfeld Theater.

At one point, Swift spiced up her all-black ensemble by trying one a dazzling red shoe from the show. She even gave a thumbs-up to a faux marriage proposal from the Broadway star.

Swift shared a silly photo of Hall picking her up for a photo op and raved about Kinky Boots and its cast.

“Went to see @todrick in Kinky Boots tonight and you just need to go see it,” she captioned the Instagram photo. Not trying to be bossy. But you need to.”

The pop star brought along friend Kelsea Ballerini, who took to Instagram to share she was “absolutely amazed and inspired” by the Broadway performance. She shared a photo where she and Swift are posing with a pair of Lola’s boots.

When Hall was tapped to play Lola in the Cyndi Lauper-scored musical, he told Entertainment Tonight that he had turned to Swift for reassurance.

“Taylor’s been the person I’ve been calling the most when I’m freaking out,” he revealed. “She’s been like, ‘Todrick, you got this.’ She’s like, ‘You’re the most fierce person I know.’ I’ve been strutting in my heels for her on FaceTime.”
