Why See Kinky Boots?

These boots are made for dancing!

Price and Sons spent the last century making a range of shoes for men, and now they're spending this century making shoes for a range of men! Based on a true story, Kinky Boots is the uplifting story of unlikely friendship, finding your passion, overcoming prejudice and recognising that underneath it all, we're not so different.

Bursting onto Broadway in 2013, sweeping the Tonys, (13 nominations, 6 wins including best musical) and introducing audiences to the irresistibly heart-warming tale of a little factory that takes on an unusual commission, with a sassy rock, funk and classic Broadway inspired score by Cyndi Lauper. Be liberated by this emotional and upbeat show that brings the all the glitz and glamour you need for a fantastic night out at the theater!

What is Kinky Boots about?

Set in the provincial Northampton, England, London-bound Charlie Price is surprised to suddenly inherit his beloved father's shoe factory and even more surprised to find that handmade men's dress shoes are no longer quite as in vogue as they used to be. Facing closure, a dejected Charlie chances upon Lola, the charismatic, brassy and fabulous drag queen and finds himself forming an unlikely business partnership, creating custom shoes for drag queens, which will change their lives forever...

Did you know?

Kinky Boots is based on the 2005 film starring Joel Edgerton and Chiwetel Ejiofor but that in turn was based on the true story of family run British shoe factory W.J. Brooks Ltd that fought to save their business by creating fetish footwear for men under the name 'Divine Footwear'.
