Scissor Sisters’ Jake Shears will make his Broadway debut in Kinky Boots this January, but this won't mark his theatrical debut. His first venture into the world of theatre was in 2011 when he co-wrote the score (with John Garden) to American Conservatory Theater's Tales of the City, adapted for the stage by Tony Award-winning Avenue Q book writer Jeff Whitty and based on the first two novels in Armistead Maupin's series, which trace the intertwining lives of colorful San Francisco residents in the 1970's.
