Kinky Boots is inspired by a true story and based on the successful 2005 British film by Geoff Deane and Tim Firth. Set in Northampton, a young Charlie Price reluctantly inherits his father's struggling shoe factory, much to the dismay of his demanding fiancé who dreams of a life together in London. Charlie wrestles with his desires to leave his home town whilst facing up with his responsibility to save his father's legacy and the family business from bankruptcy. After a slow start Charlie finds inspiration in the form of Lola, a fabulous drag performer who is in need of some sturdy stilettos for her act. Against all the odds Lola turns out to be the one person who can help Charlie, and they work together to ensure the factory becomes a success. As they work together to change people's opinions, this unlikely pair find out that they have more in common than they ever thought, and together they come to understand that when you change your mind, you can change the world.

Our Kinky Boots Review

When Broadway appropriated the 1997 British comedy The Full Monty, they went the full monty not just in terms of nudity (briefly but hidden from real view by the glare of spotlights from behind the actors) but also in giving it the works with a total makeover that shifted its unemployed steelworkers from Sheffield in the UK to Buffalo in upstate New York.

Cyndi Lauper on why people love Kinky Boots in the West End
Friday, June 8, 2018

Kinky Boots has been dazzling audiences at the Adelphi Theatre for years now, and is about to do the same at regional venues around the country as it embarks on a UK tour, but we wanted to get to the bottom of why so many people class the musical as their favourite. Who better to ask than songwriter and pop legend Cyndi Lauper? We were lucky enough to get some time with her on a recent visit to London, so we asked her about Kinky, if there was anyone she’d like to see take on Lola who hasn’t already, and if she is working on any new musicals to take the West End by storm (again).
