KINKY BOOTS @ THE LEATHERHEAD THEATRE

Posted by Francesca De Franco on 08 Feb 2020

Dee, Kalli, Nicola and I enjoyed a wonderful night at the Leatherhead Theatre watching a screening of the award-winning musical Kinky Boots.

It’s a really heart-warming and poignant production, which is filled with plenty of toe-tapping good fun and lots of proper laugh-out-loud moments. It’s got very broad appeal and the mix of people in the audience (all loving it too) proved that.

The musical was filmed live at the Adelphi Theatre and it really felt like we were watching the stage version. I’ve never clapped at a screen before, but last night I did!

What’s it all about?

Inspired by true events, this huge-hearted hit tells the story of two people with nothing in common – or so they think. Charlie (Killian Donnelly) is a factory owner struggling to save his family business, and Lola (Matt Henry) is a fabulous entertainer with a wildly exciting idea. With a little compassion and a lot of understanding, this unexpected pair learn to embrace their differences and create a line of sturdy stilettos unlike any the world has ever seen! But in the end, their most sensational achievement is their friendship. This unmissable musical theatre event celebrates a joyous story of British grit transforming into a high-heeled hit as it takes you from the factory floor of Northampton to the glamorous catwalks of Milan!

With songs from Grammy and Tony award winning pop icon Cyndi Lauper, book by legendary Broadway playwright Harvey Fierstein (La Cage Aux Folles), and direction and choreography by Jerry Mitchell (Legally Blonde, Hairspray), the musical is based on the film written by Geoff Deane and Tim Firth.
