    Kinky Boots is everything you'd expect and so much more. From the first entrance of Lola, the misunderstood drag performer you are given a workshop in sassy-ness and working a room; every other line is a punchline that delays the performance due to the amount of laughter and applause from an audience which is melting into the actors hands. Killian Donnelly shows yet again why he is the west ends most eligible leading man with effortless vocals and such an ease and stage pressence matched only by Matt Henry who gives a number of tear jerking performances and continues to add depth to his character with each scene. The ensemble helps maintain the energy and keeps the performance flowing at a steady pace, with many stand out vocal opportunities that they clearly have grasped with both hands. The angels make the show, bringing fun and life the moment they enter the stage and often steal a scene away from the action in the forefront, their costumes are immaculately made (and the shoes are as expected the show-stealer) a credit to the talent in the costume departments. The music is so well written and fits perfectly into the show, however at times I felt it came in too suddenly and an underscore may have been better fitted to some of the scenes to break up and complement big blocks of dialogue. Kinky Boots is a fun night out from beginning to end with lots of laughs and plenty of memorable songs that you will find yourself singing all the way home.

    As I was central in the stalls my view was perfect, no complaints, i could see the entire stage. The legroom was questionable i found it quite limiting particularly if someone needed to get past however it is not the worst i've experienced.

    There aren't enough words for me to express my love for "Kinky Boots". Show stopping musical numbers written by the fantastic Cyndi Lauper. This show is suitable for all, in fact this was my 3rd viewing in one month, and I plan on going again - the set for this show is perfect. After seeing the 2005 film of Kinky Boots, it replicates the Price and Sons factory, Land of Lola and the Milan fashion show exquisitely, bringing the best out of the stage. The way the competition between Don and Lola in a boxing match is set is extremely clever, making Charlie's office into the boxing ring by adding the elastic boxing belt! The shoe conveyor belts in the factory scenes are used imaginatively at the end of Act 1 in "Everybody say Yeah" when they are manually moved by the cast around the stage with cast members somersaulting and dancing on them. The costumes throughout the show amaze me! Every time Lola and her Angels are on stage they are wearing a different costume, different pair of heels, different wig AND fresh make up. The backstage costume team must be run off their feet, and credit to them! This show is affordable and a must see for musical theatre lovers and for everyone who wants a good dance and boogie at the end.

    Despite being rather far back in the stalls, the view was excellent and there wasn't a single second of action missed.

    Well what can I say, oh wow! This show was absolutely amazing! My partner paid for me and him for my birthday this year, he's not really in to musicals but even he came out with a massive smile on his face! He loved it we both did! I'm a huge musical theatre fan my self, I mean huge, and this show was just one of the ones I will never ever forget! Killian Donnelly who plays Charlie and Callum Francis who played Lola on the night were insane!! There vocals were incredible, the whole cast were just amazing, so so good. It's such a feel good show, the songs were so catchy, there was some emotional parts - I even shed a few tears but I do not regret it at all! By the end of the show everyone was up dancing and singing along, I came out and pre-ordered the album that night! I couldn't wait to sing along again, and I can't wait to see this show again! If you haven't seen this show yet, GO GO GO GO GO! You will not regret it!! "Just be who you wanna be, never let em tell you ought to be" Best show ever!
    The seats were brilliant! The view was fabulous, and the seats were comfy, there was enough room to stretch your legs and put your bags underneath your seats, and there was even enough room to have a little boogie!

    It is easy to see why Kinky Boots has become a firm West End favourite since it opened last year. With a heart-warming story, some fantastic performances and the best drag queens you’ll probably see on a West End stage, what’s not to love? Matt Henry’s performance as Lola is remarkable and worth a watch alone, while David Hunter plays wonderfully off of him in the far more understated role. There’s a good handful of laughs throughout, however occasionally the humour isn’t quite pulled off and elements do feel a bit cringey. With its focus on a working class community facing financial ruin from the modern world, eventually being brought together and overcoming their rejection of non-conformist gender and masculinity, it really is hard not to compare it to Billy Elliot. Sadly though this lacks the memorable songs and truly touching moments of the latter. However with enough flamboyance and glitziness to make up for it, this is definitely worth a watch.
    Sat in Stalls C12
    Really fantastic seat that can’t particularly be faulted. Pretty good legroom and fairly comfortable padded seats. You get a very central view of the stage while being close enough to feel right in the heart of the action. The stage in the Criterion Theatre is fairly high so being a few rows back from the front means you avoid craning your neck while still being able to see the action over the heads of the people in front of you.

KINKY BOOTS SEATING PLAN
If you want to get a good eyeful of those Kinky Boots, we would recommend sitting a few rows back from the front of the Stalls.

STORY
“Everybody Say Yeah,” – Kinky Boots finally makes its hotly anticipated West End transfer to London’s Adelphi Theatre following Tony Award winning success on Broadway and a huge North American tour.

Kinky Boots is based on the 2005 film of the same name and has been adapted into a stage musical by pop star Cyndi Lauper and writer Harvey Fierstein, with direction and choreography by Jerry Mitchell.

Like the film, Kinky Boots is inspired by true events. Set in a shoe factory, new owner Charlie Price is struggling to live up to his father’s legacy. Having dreamt of moving to London with his pushy fiancé Nicola, the last thing he expected to be doing was making shoes for a living, a trade which he knows very little about.

Feeling as if he is letting down both his father and his employees, Charlie struggles to keep the business afloat. That is until he meets an unlikely partner in Lola, a performing drag artist, who is in dire need of a sturdy shoe to support his weight. Can Charlie and Lola work together to create the ultimate fashionable shoe or “kinky boot?” And will Nicola be able to cope with her absentee husband to be?

West End favourite, Killian Donnelly (Phantom of the Opera, Les Miserables, The Commitments, Memphis) established the role of Charlie on the West End, however from 14th August 2016, David Hunter, known for playing the lead role in the West End production of Once, will take over the leading role of Charlie Price, while Elena Skye will make her professional West End debut when she takes over from Amy Lennox as Lauren.

Olivier Award-winner Matt Henry will continue in the role of Lola.

Kinky Boots is an uplifting musical with standout show tunes such as “Sex is in the Heel,” “The History of Wrong Guys,” “Everybody Say Yeah,” and “Raise You Up/Just Be.”
Suitable For
Kinky Boots is recommended for the more exuberant theatre goer! If you liked Priscilla: Queen of the Desert, then this show is for you.
