Category is: “Break Out Performance in a Touring Production” - Jos N. Banks as Lola in KINKY BOOTS!!!
BWW Review: KINKY BOOTS at Starlight Theatre
" Jos N Banks, as Lola, is a quadruple threat! Banks acting makes one think he was born onstage and has never left. His singing and dancing in numbers like "Sex is in the Heel" are stellar, and his acrobatics in both heels and boxing gloves must make him the envy of the Broadway acting community! "
