Kinky Boots the Musical, London West End



Well, it was definitely around Christmas last year when I watched Aladdin the Musical at the London West End.

On reflection, I sometimes think I do take things for granted knowing that the West End is just there and that I could easily get tickets without having to plan very much well in advance.

And that is exactly what happened during the last Summer Bank Holiday weekend when I woke up feeling like I should take full advantage of the long weekend and do something. After a few messages exchanged with my friend, Sue, we agreed to head out into town to watch Kinky Boots the Musical.

At the time of writing, the show is still showing at the Adelphi Theatre, by the Strand.

I must admit that I watched the show with no knowledge of what it's all about, other than knowing that it is based on a true story and that the show is highly recommended by those who had watched it.

What enthralled me for the next few hours was definitely money well-worth spending. It had every element of what you would typically expect from an award-winning production; glitzy, glamour, humour, bright-bold-coloured costumes, emotions and life values.

I don't want to give out too much, but essentially, the storyline is rather simple. It's about a young man who initially had no intention of taking over the helm of his family business. He was put on the spot when his father died unexpectedly and he had very little choice, not only to lead the business but also implement changes to save the company from becoming irrelevant in the market.

The scenes changed from a humble shoe factory floor in Northampton, England to the glamorous catwalk runway in Milan, Italy, with a bit of London in between.

Kinky Boots the Musical is definitely worth a watch if you're planning a night out in London. It's hilarious, entertaining and with a cast that is so energetic, it's impossible to come out of the theatre not feeling exhilarated yourself.
