Treat yourself to Kinky Boots before it's too late!*

Now that the days are shorter and the nights significantly colder, a night at the theatre sounds like a perfect idea. London is known for it's many spectacular West End musicals, but none are as fabulous as Kinky Boots! If you want to see this gem of a musical, you need to book your tickets quickly because the final tour date in London is 12 January 2019.

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! Brace yourself for spoilers from this point... 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 to save the Price & Son shoe factory from shutting down. 



What is so beautiful about this plot is that Charlie and Lola don't particularly fit into each other's worlds, but they make room for each other because both come from a background where a lot was expected from them. Expectations that neither wanted to live up to. 

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 emotional issues. All the songs were super catchy, some funny and some really emotional. Although the plot is romanticised a little, the story is based on true events and there are some really important life lessons touched upon. I also loved that certain characters were more closed minded in the beginning, but started to understand that everyone is different and slowly accepted Lola for who she is. 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
