Kinky Boots – A heartwarming true story

This show has thrilled audiences and critics alike, appealing powerfully to the American psyche and their love of triumph against adversity. Now the musical is transferring to London’s grand Adelphi theatre, from August 2015.

We love the story behind the show. It begins with a classy BBC documentary about a struggling Northamptonshire shoe factory. The story caught the imagination of movie makers and, in 2005, shot the factory to an unusual level of fame in the wonderful film.

W J Brookes' real life MD Steve Pateman has never forgotten the moment he realised the TV documentary in which his factory had starred was a massive hit with viewers. In his words: "On the day it went out the BBC brought me down to London to do a couple of interviews. The next day I was on the tube rushing for my train back to Northamptonshire when a guy recognised me and leant over to talk about the programme. Soon half the carriage was on about it. That's when I knew it had gripped people."

A total of Six Tony Awards, three Outer Critics Circle Awards, one Drama League Award, one Drama Desk Award and one Artois Award have made the musical a legend in its own lifetime. So what's all the fuss about, and how come a thoroughly British tale proved to have such a big appeal in the USA?

The New York Times said, “Cyndi Lauper… has created a love- and heat-seeking score that performs like a pop star on Ecstasy… From their entrances, the cast members build up a bank of good vibrations.

Time Out magazine New York called it, “The very model of a modern major musical! Irresistible, with a heart strong cast… Lauper is a musical-theater natural, combining bright, infectious melodies with simple but effective lyrics. As each act progresses, the energy rises palpably, boosted by a heart-strong cast.

Stage And Cinema magazine says, “It’s easy to see what attracted illustrious bookwriter Harvey Fierstein, composer/lyricist Cyndi Lauper and equally accomplished director/choreographer Jerry Mitchell to this lesser known (and much darker) 2005 film of the same name. The musical is a blue-collar, Cinderella story that puts its own spin on the feel-good.

Kinky Boots - The story

When a shoe factory hits the doldrums, struggling to survive, a new direction saves their bacon. Who could have guessed that the world's transgender community would hold their key to success?

Fabelhaft

London Box Office customer

Fantastic show

London Box Office customer

Wonderfully brought to life

The actors did justice to the great story. The music by Cindi Lauper is energetic and great. I even bought the CD. I had seats in the back row of the first balcony and while not great, they were good enough to get into it. I could lean forward if I needed to without worrying about blocking the view of the people behind me. Spring for good seats if you can.


London Box Office customer

Fun and heart-warming

An overall amazing show with likeable characters and really catchy music!

Big disappointment

Ok I don't know where to start .Before I buy tickets to this musical I read the reviews nobody's mentioned what is all about .And I so only very good reviews so I decided to take my 12 years old son and my partner .We where very excited to see and have great time . So when the show started my partner and son was completely shocked we all didn't expected to see transvestites. We don't have nothing wrong whit them but everything was so horrible. It's to much of word sex non stop and ho they are and what they do.I'm sorry but it needs a sign on the advertisement that all family's could understand what is all about and not spend big amount of money and get disappointed. It was waist of money and disgusting to see.


London Box Office customer

Easy watching, entertaining and good value for money

We decided to go on the spur of the moment as we were in London. Couldn’t get the same price at the booth as online so we booked on using our phone online and got a fantastic £19.50 per ticket with no fees, we collected 2 minutes later! The show is well worth the visit, we were in row m and could see properly. Cast, acting, music etc was good, would recommend.

The World is a better place with Kinky Boots

The review instructions indicated I was to give advice for other visitors. If you go see kinky boots, be prepared to experience excellent singing dancing and a great story. I’ve seen the show twice, and would happily go a third fourth and fifth time..

Emensely entertaining and professional show.

I was a little concerned, (before seeing the show) about story line but completely won over by the fantastic and brilliant performances of ALL the cast. Exceptionally talented bunch WOW! Because of some of the language and content I would advise it may not be suitable for children (under 16?). For others get yourself there and be entertained.

Review: Kinky Boots

09 Sep 2015 in Reviews

Kinky Boots - London Welcome home ‘Kinky Boots’. The 2013 Tony Award winning Best Musical has landed in the United Kingdom and has definitely benefited from the journey home. When I first saw this show, which is set in Northampton, in previews on Broadway, and then again recently in Toronto with the Canadian cast, I couldn’t help but feel that a certain Britishness was lacking in both productions...

Hit Broadway musical Kinky Boots looks for a London home

20 Nov 2014 in New Shows

Kinky Boots London There were reports a few months back that the multi Tony Award-winning new musical Kinky Boots would be making the long journey over the Atlantic to London’s West End.

The latest news is that the planned transfer of the show with music by Cyndi Lauper is delayed, but still going ahead. The hold-up seems to be down to finding a West End venue to house the production, as every theatre is currently hosting all manner of musical, plays, dance and opera. The producers of the hit Broadway musical will be banking on a production closing in London’s theatreland, paving the way for Kinky Boots, bringing the British made story back home.
