Kinky boots – Adelphi theatre

I imagined Kinky boots would be an all singing, all dancing energetic show from the adverts I have seen but I didn’t realise the depth of the storyline and the spectrum of emotions it would evoke.

Kinky boots tells the story of Charlie Price who is struggling to follow in his fathers footsteps and live up to his expectations, an unexpected turn takes his business from the factory floor in Northampton to the glamourous catwalk of Milan via the sassy Lola and her team of vivacious drag queens.

With clever staging and sparkling costumes (how they managed to dance their way around the stage in those heels I will never know) the storyline is brought to life on the stage. The characters are very endearing and there are many laugh out loud moments. Cyndi Lauper did a great job with the music and there are some real catchy tunes that you’ll find yourself singing along to.

This is probably one of my favourite west end shows and if you are a musical fan then I highly recommend, full of fun and joy you will be leaving the show with a smile on your face!

  1. Do you know, I don’t think I had any idea what the show was about before I read this. Sounds fantastic.
