REVIEW: Kinky Boots The Musical!

Kinky Boots: The Musical in Winnipeg until April 21, 2019! Get your tickets down below

A wonderful story of acceptance and conquering prejudice, Kinky Boots tells the tale of two unsuspecting friends who team up to save Charlie’s (played by Connor Allston) father’s shoe factory. Forced to start laying his workers off due to the state of financial peril of the company, Charlie gets the bright idea to start making shoes for a ‘niche’ market. Enter Lola/Simon (played by Kenneth Mosley), a drag queen from ‘The Angels’ who is in need of specific sleek feminine footwear to support masculine weight.  Lola joins forces with Charlie to help save his company. Told through the music of the famous Cyndi Lauper and the book by Harvey Fierstein, the cast of Kinky Boots holds nothing back and tells the heartwarming story with great finesse and extravaganza! If you find yourself looking for plans for this long weekend- look no further. An evening with this talented cast of dancers, singers and actors will be an amazing way to spend the night and learn the story of diversity. Make sure to lookout for the song in Act 1 titled “Land of Lola” (it was our editors favourite piece). To the cast of Kinky Boots, we welcome you to Winnipeg with open arms and we hope you “Break a leg and never a Heel” for your remaining performances at the Centennial Concert Hall.

Everything Winnipeg Score: 9/10
