Getting kinky at the Theatre Royal


The award-winning musical Kinky Boots has landed at Newcastle’s Theatre Royal. This colourful and upbeat show is sensational. Based on the 2005 British film Kinky Boots and with lyrics written by 80s pop icon and Grammy-winning Cyndi Lauper this musical has all the right ingredients to be amazing.

The story follows Charlie Price, a young man struggling to live up to his father’s expectations and continue the family business of Price & Son. With the shoe factory’s future hanging in the balance, help arrives in the unlikely but spectacular form of Lola - a fabulous performer in need of some sturdy new stilettos.

Callum Francis's performance as Lola was jaw-droppingly good. You could feel the audiences excitement as he came into the stage. A heady mix of over-the-top showmanship tinged with vulnerability and in superb comic timing.

Joel Harper-Jackson was fantastic as Charlie. He brought an unselfish performance that provided the crucial lynch-pin on which the story revolves.

The whole cast worked extremely hard and the standing ovation at the end of the evening was well deserved. The company can walk tall after a performance like that.

If you are looking for a fun night out and a show that really packs a punch then Kinky Boots is a must see.

The show runs from Monday 29th October to Saturday 10th November 2018
