I didn’t really know what to anticipate, the first time that I saw Kinky Boots. I’d heard from friends that it’s a fun show; and my stepmother once told me that it was one of the best shows she’d ever seen. Aside from that feedback, I hadn’t known what to expect.  Once I sat in the darkened theater, I was transported into a glittering musical sensation with deep roots in the power of friendship and acceptance.

Inspired by true events, Kinky Boots takes you from a gentlemen’s shoe factory in Northampton to the glamorous catwalks of Milan. Charlie Price is struggling to live up to his father’s expectations and continue the family business of Price & Son. With the factory’s future hanging in the balance, help arrives in the unlikely but spectacular form of Lola, a fabulous performer in need of some sturdy new stilettos.
