Brendon Urie shows off his "Kinky Boots" costume in behind-the-scenes clip

Credit: Shervin LainezBrendon Urie will make his Broadway debut later this month in the Tony-winning musical Kinky Boots. For a preview of his performance, you can check out the Panic! at the Disco frontman in full costume -- complete with sparkling red, thigh-high boots -- now via People.com.

"I used to dream about this day," Urie says in a behind-the-scenes video. "Just being a part of musical theater -- so it's literally is a dream come true."

In Kinky Boots, Urie will play Charlie Price, a young man who tries to save his late father's shoe factory with the help of a drag queen named Lola. The musical's score was composed by '80s pop icon Cyndi Lauper.

"What drew me to the show was when I saw it, I knew I wanted to be a part of it," says Urie. "It moved me so much. That end moment, the finale -- I felt like I want to get up and shout and celebrate life. That feeling resonated within me, and I wanted to be a part of it. The message is so clear. It's so relatable."

"When audiences leave Kinky Boots, I hope they feel that passion that I felt, that was like a fire inside of my chest," he adds. If you want to laugh, if you want to cry, if you want to feel something so strong at the end of a show, then come to the show. It's just incredible."

Urie's Broadway run on Kinky Boots begins May 26.

Last month, Urie and Panic! at the Disco wrapped up an arena tour in support of their new album, Death of a Bachelor.
