The World of West End: Kinky Boots

Last night I had the opportunity to see Kinky Boots at Adelphi Theater on West End and it was such a great experience. The show was phenomenal and I definitely recommend seeing it if you have the chance, whether that be in London or in New York.  One of the cool things about being able to see the show on West End is that the real events of the story actually transpired in England, so here I was closer to the events than I would have been if I was in New York.

Not to sound like a bad, cheesy review on the show, but Kinky Boots really did make you laugh, cry, and everything in between.

The two male leads were absolutely amazing and Lola’s range was insane. The part that probably impressed me the most though was the dancing and the costumes of the drag queens. At first glance you would not be able to distinguish Lola’s “girls” from anyone else walking down the streets of London. Beyond that, they could walk better in six-inch heels than I, and probably most girls, could. The dancing was not just basic  dancing either, but ridiculous choreography that I probably could not even memorize let alone perform without falling on my face and looking absolutely ridiculous.

The show provided not only comedy and entertainment, but depth. It showed how quick our world is to judge and make assumptions about people instead of just loving them and accepting them for who they are. The message was clear in the show and although the conflict was a resolved in a magical way just in time for the fashion show in Milan, resolution of conflict really can be that easy if people just learn to characterize their lives with love.

Over all, this was a great show to kick-off my journey into the world of West End and I am looking forward to going to see The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time later tonight!
