The Show

Kinky Boots is an award-winning musical by Harvey Fiernstein, with music by Cyndi Lauper. It is based on Geoff Deane and Tim Firth’s 2005 film. Following success on Broadway, the show opened in the West End’s Adelphi Theatre in September 2015 under the direction of Jerry Mitchell.

Kinky Boots tells the story of Charlie Price and his bid to save his late father’s failing shoe factory. Charlie forms a partnership with drag queen Lola, and the factory discontinues the production of comfortable, expensive men’s shoes and begins to make a range of glamorous, glittering, stiletto-heeled, kinky boots targeted at the male transvestite market in time for modelling at a Milan fashion show.
