Hit musical Kinky Boots proves that sometimes the best way to fit in, is to stand out. The exhilarating show features a score by pop icon Cyndi Lauper, knockout dancing and an inspiring story. Stellar sets and excellent costumes form the backdrop for the story of Charlie Price, an aspiring young businessman who suddenly inherits a bankrupt shoe factory and finds unexpected inspiration in the form of Lola, a fabulous entertainer in need of some sturdy stilettos. As Charlie and Lola work to turn the factory around, this unlikely pair finds that they have more in common than they ever dreamed possible … and discover that when you change your mind, you can change your whole world!
Kinky Boots is playing at Empire Theatre from March 22 to 31. The show’s opening will coincide with the completion of refurbishments to the theatre, which will include new seating and improvements to amenities and bars.
