Melbourne audiences have been on their feet each night since the multi-award winning production made its star-studded Australian premiere on Saturday 22 October 2016 and the Australian cast, led by principals Callum Francis (Lola) and Toby Francis (Charlie) received a glitter-bomb of glowing reviews.

Kinky Boots could quite possibly be one of the best things to happen to the musical theatre scene in Australia this year.” – Australian Arts Review

“Kinky Boots has delivered in quite a sensational way and will leave its mark on many in Melbourne…” – Broadway World

“A Brilliantly performed, life-affirming musical that high-kicks you out of the theatre walking on air.” – Limelight

With Tony and Grammy winning songs by pop icon Cyndi Lauper, a book by Broadway royalty Harvey Fierstein (La Cage aux Folles) and direction and choreography by Tony-Award Winner Jerry Mitchell (Legally Blonde, Hairspray), Kinky Boots will celebrate its fourth birthday on Broadway in April this year, and its second in London’s West End in September.

Based on the movie starring Joel Edgerton and inspired by a true story, Kinky Boots takes audiences on a hilarious journey from a working class shoe factory to the runways of Milan. It has collected six Tony Awards, including Best Musical and Best Original Score Written for the Theatre, a Grammy Award for Best Musical Theatre Album and three Olivier Awards including Best New Musical.

Kinky Boots is currently playing at Melbourne’s Her Majesty’s Theatre until 12 March, before transferring to Sydney’s Capitol Theatre from 12 April 2017. For more information, visit: www.kinkybootsthemusical.com.au for details.
