North East theatre company all set to get Kinky

Get ready to kick up your heels and experience the exhilarating spectacle of Kinky Boots live on stage in Darlington for the first time. It’s been nine years since Kinky Boots first found its footing on British shores, with a sparkling West End run that lasted for three years. Now this beloved musical, set in Northampton and based on the 2005 film of the same name, finally takes to the stage in Darlington thanks to an exciting production from Darlington Operatic Society (DarlingtonOS). Photo Scott Akoz Photography After the death of his father, Charlie Price (Ben Connor / Nicholas Fletcher-Holmes) is left with his father’s failing shoe factory, Price and Son.

Croft House Theatre Company hit the heights once again with this stunning production of Kinky Boots based on the 2005 British film of the same name.

Kinky Boots: In Concert – Theatre Royal, Drury Lane

Kinky Boots is one of the most well-loved pieces of modern theatre. The production follows Charlie Price’s struggle to take over his father’s failing shoe company and how he finds help in the most unexpected of places…a drag bar in London. The incomparably lavish Lola and her Angels take Charlie on a journey of acceptance, defiance, and most importantly, making stiletto shoes for drag queens. Your average workday. The story of Kinky Boots is based on a true story and is split between its base in Northampton, the drag bar in London, and a fashion show in Milan. As someone who has just moved from Northampton to London, I do identify with Charlie’s struggle quite a lot, it’s certainly given me a new take on the show. Going into this performance, it was important to be reminded that it ...

Kinky Boots – Blackpool Grand Theatre

If Musicals bingo was a thing, Kinky Boots would surely tick every single box. Based on a true story? Check. Working class factory setting? Check. Underdog who wins the day? Well, that would be something of a spoiler, but you can guess the answer. Based on a true story, we meet Charlie Price who, following a chance meeting with a drag queen named Lola, decides to re-invigorate the shoe factory he has recently inherited from his late father, by making shoes for drag queens. Soon a prestigious trade show in Milan beckons but Lola and Charlie look set to fall out over whether the Italian critics will like the cut of their leather. With Harvey Fierstein’s devilishly funny script, adapted from Tim Firth’s original screenplay (himself no stranger to ‘beat the odds’ musicals) and a sparkli...
