Kinky Boots at Capital Theatre

Kinky Boots at Capital Theatre

The award-winning Broadway musical featuring original lyrics and music from Cyndi Lauper has come to Sydney in all its glittering glory.

The city of Sydney has literally been painted red with the arrival of award-winning Broadway musical, Kinky Boots.

Now showing at the Capitol Theatre until July 23, Kinky Boots is that rare gem of a production that keeps you tapping your well-heeled foot throughout the entire show.

Inspired by true events, Kinky Boots tells the story of Charlie Price and his attempts to revive the family shoe business with the unconventional aid of one Lola – a London-based drag queen.

The storyline, which spans the town of Northampton, London, and all the way to Milan, is peppered by the musical brilliance of Cyndi Lauper – who, incidentally, won a Tony Award for her work

Bringing to life the main characters of Lola and Charlie are the irrepressible performances of Callum Francis and Toby Francis respectively, with Callum joining the cast direct from the original London Production at the Adelphi Theatre where he understudied the role of Lola.

If you’re travelling to Sydney for a romantic weekend away or even planning a short getaway for the family, then definitely don’t miss the chance to take in one of the most amazing shows of the season.

And if you’re wondering what to wear to the night, there’s only one possible colour you should consider – and that’s red!

 

 

Kinky Boots is now playing at the Capitol Theatre until July 23.
