Review: Kinky Boots The Musical in London's West End

Last Thursday I was able to share the fruits of being a blogger, with my Mum by taking her to see Kinky Boots, the musical! Kinky Boots, which is a film, turned Broadway musical inspired by real events, has just hit London's very own West End and I was lucky enough to be given two tickets to see it. 

Kinky Boots tells the story of Charlie Price, who inherits a shoe factory on the brink of closing down. In a bid to save his father's legacy and all the factory worker's jobs, Charlie teams up with a drag queen named Lola, to create 'kinky boots' for drag queen clientele, hoping the niche market an innovative product will save the day.

Not only was the story great, but I loved the music, all put together by the legendary Tony, Emmy and Grammy-winner Cyndi Lauper! The sets, props and costumes were brilliantly put together too, with a moving production line that the dancers used for added 'sass' to their routines and of course the incredible kinky boots, which made me wish I owned a pair myself (if only I could ever walk in something like that!)

The show itself has an inspiring message of self acceptance, and love and respect for each other and this was put across perfectly by the talented actors. Taking the lead as 'Charlie' is Killian Donnelly and 'slaying' as 'Lola' is The Voice runner up-  Matt Henry.

Composer and lyricist, Cyndi Lauper said: "It has been a wonderful adventure and a privilege for me, to play a part in creating Kinky Boots. Everyone can relate to this universal story, and I am convinced that people in the UK are going to fall in love with it - and the music will hopefully get them tapping their toes!"

The foyer of the Adelphi Theatre, which Kinky Boots is calling home, are photo opportunities to pose in a pair of cardboard kinky boots, which you can see me modelling above, and a bar stocking kinky themed cocktails, making your pre show experience as fabulous as the show itself. 

Kinky Boots opens in the Adelphi Theatre on 15th September and you can tweet all about your experience using the hashtag '#LondonGetsKinky' or find out more about the show on Twitter and Instagram, both '@KinkyBootsUK.'

To see the show, I wore my very own suede kinky boots, which I recently purchased from Boohoo! They are so comfortable and cute with a tie detail at the back. It's safe to say I'm obsessed. I teamed it with even more suede, in the form of my fringed Primark camisole, which you can see in my latest Primark haul, here
