    I loved this show from start to finish. Its a beautiful story about acceptance and friendship and love in way, of others and yourself. I think this is breath of fresh air in the west end and is so feel good, you can't help but come out of the theatre smiling and singing along to the infectious songs and score. The costumes are just stunning and the set is so detailed (until you get to the last scene - and then it does feel a little thrown together at last minute). The choreography and staging is wonderful and each actor I have seen has made there role there own incredibly well. I think everyone should see this show, and whilst I do think you have to be open minded going in and give it a chance there's not much not to love!

    This is a day seat just over to one side. Unlike most front row tickets the Adelphi doesn't offer vast amounts of legroom due to the proximity of the Orchestra Pit. I actually quite like that you can see all the instruments playing. The other thing is that you get a really good view of the stage from front row and don't feel too close because of the gap from the Orchestra. There are no restrictions with this seat, but it just make you focus on certain things as you are a little close to take in the whole stage at once.

    This seat did feel quite far back, but at the same time the view really wasn't too bad at all and I liked the fact that there where details in the show that people in the stall would miss. The seats are comfortable but the leg room is limited. I don't think I enjoyed the show any less sitting in the Grand Circle and for the price it was a good place to sit to see the show for the first time, not knowing if I was going to like it and so not wanting to spend too much. I think that this seat is worth the price you pay.

    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.

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.”
