Kinky Boots: The Musical that will have you kicking up your heels

Looking for a joyful and festive musical comedy to finish the year on the right foot? We have found the shoe what fits: Kinky Boots, THE show with six Tony Awards, along with the best musical comedy prize in 2013. A show inspired by the true story with music and lyrics by Cyndi Lauper. Unmissable.

The pitch: After the death of his father, Charlie Price, only heir to a 4 generation luxury shoe brand for men, inherits the keys to the brand. Not a businessman, the apprentice shoemaker has a hard time getting things working. On a visit to London, the young man meets Lola, a flamboyant drag queen with amazing ideas that inspires a new model: over the knee boots made to measure for transvestites.

The adventure of this unlikely pair continues in Italy where they present their incredible collection of high heels...for men! Why does it work? Because the stage set and the choreography by Jerry Mitchell animates the imposing shoe factory. Because the stage makeup is amazing. Because the dance numbers by Lola with legs up in the air and “her angels” are masterly. Because behind the exuberance and fantasy, Kinky Boots is a lovely story of friendship, that of two opposite destinies and the shoes that united them.
