Kinky Boots

Believe it or not, I am not really the musical type. I guess I just don't really like it when stories are told in songs, unless they're Disney... But I was in for a surprise when my friend and I decided to book tickets to see London's West End Kinky Boots.

Expect the unexpected

When I asked my friend what she wanted to do whilst in London, a musical came up pretty quickly, so we looked into different prices and possible dates and ended up with a small selection. Without doing too much research we ended up booking tickers for Kinky Boots. The summary says that Charlie inherits his father shoe factory, which is not doing very well, so he receives help from an unexpected friend Lola. 

All sounds pretty ordinary right? Wait until you find out who Lola is! Spoiler alert from this part! Lola is a fabulously glamorous drag queen from London! Although they seem like they come from two completely different worlds, Charlie and Lola have a lot in common and go on an exciting journey together. 

Beautiful songs and costumes 

I'm not going to lie, I was struggling to fight away the tears at some point as you can imagine this story deals with quite a few issues. Although the plot is romanticised a little, the story is based on true events and there are some really important life lessons touched upon. That is why I was so happy to see such a diverse crowd watching the performance and cheering for the actors. 

With a name as Kinky Boots you do expect to see stunning shoes rights? Well, stunning is an understatement! I am currently on the hunt for sparkly, red, thigh high boots. Don't ask why, I just feel like everyone needs a pair to admire! The designers of these boots have really outdone themselves, I am sure that if they are up for sale somewhere they would sell out in seconds! 

All in all I had an unbelievable evening, no musical will ever top this experience for me and I can highly recommend you see this one before it ends January 2019!

Lots of love,
Savannah
