Find out Lauper’s net worth, and if the Kinky Boots composer is married.

‘Kinky Boots’ surprising success and Tony awards

Based on the 2005 English film with the same name, Kinky Boots opened on Broadway in 2013. The singer wrote the music and lyrics for the show and Broadway veteran Harvey Fierstein penned the book. The show was no small success. It took home six Tony Awards, including Best Musical and Best Original Score for Lauper, a huge win for her that affirmed her talent and ability to make music that audiences connect with.

“The Broadway community made me feel I was at home and they embraced me in the most beautiful way,” Lauper told Metro last year. “And getting to watch audiences fall in love with Kinky Boots and open their hearts and minds to the idea of ‘You change the world when you change your mind’ has been really special.”

Lauper is married and here’s how she met her husband

Lauper and her husband, actor David Thornton, have been married 28 years. They met on the set of 1991’s Off and Running, as Lauper recalled to Independent in 1992.

“In the movie, I was one of several women dressed as mermaids swimming around for the opening titles. All the other mermaids were nuts for David. . . . it was during an intimate moment in a Miami hotel that I realized I loved him, that I wanted to marry him.”

“Two weeks after we’d really gotten together, he was talking about marriage. . . When the film was finished, we spent a month alone together at Cape Cod. We could stand each other, so we decided to go ahead and marry.”

Lauper gave birth to their son, Declyn Wallace Thornton, in 1997.

Lauper’s net worth

Cyndi Lauper’s net worth is $30 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth. Not bad for the woman who at one time left her home at a young age, was homeless for a while, and didn’t think she’d ever be a viable artist.

For the ninth year in a row, the singer hosted on Dec. 10th her “Cyndi Lauper & Friends: Home for the Holidays benefit concert” to help homeless youth, particularly LBGTQ young people who have been thrown out of their homes because of their sexual orientation.

“I’m really heartened and excited by the response I’ve gotten throughout the entertainment community,” Lauper told Los Angeles Blade. “Home for the Holidays is known for always having a cool and eclectic mix of performers. . . It’s going to be such a great night. Many of those who are not available to perform have offered such amazing items for auction. I’m so touched by the generosity we’ve received. More surprises to come soon.”
