Kinky Boots The Musical

1A BOOTiful Night!

In mid-October GTOs were invited to a Readers’ Night at the Adelphi Theatre, London, to watch the Olivier Award winning musical Kinky Boots.
Julie Hart shared the enjoyable entertainment and reports on the event.

This was our biggest Readers’ Night yet with nearly 40 readers and their guests enjoying the spectacular musical, Kinky Boots. It was one of the best and fun-filled evenings I’ve been to – the energy of the cast was amazing as they danced at top speed around the stage, never missing a beat in their high-heeled boots.

The musical tells the story of the rise in fortunes of a shoe manufacturing business and Lola and the Angels brought the heart-warming story vividly to life with their outstanding singing and incredible dancing. The audience was in raptures with the whole show and it was also really clear that all the cast were enjoying every minute too! It definitely stands out as one of the West End’s most dazzling and brilliant of shows.

Going back stage at the end of the show was a real treat for me and I really loved the chance to have my photo taken with some of the performers. And, as a group, we all appreciated chatting to the cast at the post-show meet and greet, and I’d like to thank them all for the warm welcome they gave us.

I love going to the theatre and Kinky Boots is now one of my favourite musicals and I can’t wait to go back again! I’d definitely recommend it to groups for a fun, feel-good afternoon or night out, and Encore Tickets will help with getting your ticket allocation as well as answering any queries you may have.

“Just wanted to thank you – we thoroughly enjoyed the show – great entertainment and a super evening. Will definitely be putting it on my hit list for my “friends” group.”

“It was funny, fast paced, brilliantly outrageous in places, emotionally sad in others, superbly acted and transfers from film to the stage wonderfully.”
SUE MAHONEY Rayleigh Grange U3A

“It was great talking to some of the cast, one of them – James – told us that he only got his boots to wear in the finale, the day before dress rehearsals, and had one day to learn to walk – and dance – in them! Think I would have been flat on my face!”
JACKIE AMES Unity 70, London

“I did not want it to end, it was lovely, lively, great music and a wonderful story.”
JANET PORTLOCK Elgar Coaches

“Kinky Boots is THE show not to miss for groups of all ages and types; it has everything one expects from the London stage, from great music and incredible costumes (and the boots!), to laugh-out-loud as well as emotional moments. The amazing cast will have you up on your feet at every curtain call!”
