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?

Definitely a must see show

London Box Office customer

Brilliant show. A must see!!

I've seen a lot of shows and the production for this one is amazing. I don't want to give to much away but the male dancers were absolutely brilliant. Great humour, great story, great everything.


London Box Office customer

Invigorating

Was a very good show would say that you could sit anywhere and have good seats


London Box Office customer

Fun evening out!

When we booked this show as a family evening out, I honestly wasn't sure it would be fitting for our 13 & 14 year olds. But it turned out to be great- nothing uncomfortable and it provided great talking points about working through problems and acceptance. We all thoroughly enjoyed it. The music was great, the theater was intimate. If yoy haven't seen Kinky Boots- GO!


London Box Office customer

AMAZING!! So much fun!! Loved it!!

Matt Henry was phenomenal - his acting and singing was what made the show!!! Great story line! I didn't want it to end - I shouted out Encore - I wanted to see another song and dance while clapping and dancing away as the whole theatre stood for a standing ovation!!! So much fun!!


London Box Office customer

AMAZING!!

Best musical I've ever seen! The story is so fun with such a great message. The actors were increadible and the singing was the greatest I've ever heard live!!

Awesome show from start to finish.

The show was vibrant and exciting. We sat in the dress circle and it was great but think the stalls might be better.

Good show

Last week I saw 42nd street,so this show was a little less engaging but still worth a night out ,we was sitting upstairs and to me the sound wasn't to clear it seamed rather muffled.


London Box Office customer

brliant all round entertaining show with comedy, good storyline and great music and acting would recommend for all.


London Box Office customer

Entertaining and uplifting

8 people saw the show. We loved the music and the storyline. Lots of laughter, some tears and great entertainment. The only negative comment is that a person 5 ft 2 can have difficulty seeing the stage if taller people are in front of you.

Could be better

Acting needed to be much better. Dancing wonderful, costumes tremendous, music was to zip zap for me but singing talent wonderful.


London Box Office customer

Best musical ever!

First time I saw the show I didn't know what to expect but I was mesmorised, the music, story line, costumes were fantastic. I took mt mum for Mother's Day and she enjoyed it just as much. Hoping to see it again but would love to meet the Angles x


London Box Office customer

A lively,energetic show .Not to be missed, one of the BEST!

We didn't just like the show, we loved it! It's fast moving pace ,colour and energy just lifted your spirits. Just one piece of advice. I think the show is more suitable to a teenage and adult audience due to the trans-gender part of the story.as younger children would struggle to understand the quips and cross dressing which played the huge part of the hilarity in this brilliant show.


London Box Office customer

Stunning and fabulous!

London Box Office customer

Fabulously Entertaining

I count this show as one of my top favorites. I really liked how it conveyed a very positive message with somewhat subtle humour, lively music and wonderfully flamboyant costumes.

Pure Entertainment

What do you want when you go to the Theatre, to be entertained and for the duration of the production just forget about anything else that's going on in your life. Kinky Boots delivered right from the start. It took no time at all to set the scene, outline the story and introduce the characters and from there it was a case of sit back enjoy the music, and be entertained.


London Box Office customer

Not to Miss

What a show. The whole performance was top-rate; it's one of those shows you could easily go back and see again. Well done! P.S. - Lola = perfection!

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...

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.
