Kinky Boots

‘Kinky Boots’ is the colourful, uplifting, hilarious 2012 musical stage adaptation of the 2005 film of the same name. Featuring a score by the one and only Cyndi Lauper and a book by Harvey Fierstein, this musical became a great feel-good show that has since won a good number of awards including 6 Tony’s in 2013! The Original Broadway Cast included Billy Porter, Stark Sands, Annaleigh Ashford, Caroline Bowman and Lena Hall, however throughout the various production since then, there have been multiple notable cast members such as Taylor Louderman, Sophie Isaacs, Brendon Urie, Todrick Hall, Bonnie Milligan, Wayne Brady, David Hunter and Kirstin Maldonado from popular acapella group Pentatonix. There is also a full proshot of the London cast at the Adelphi Theatre that is available with a cast starring Matt Henry, Killian Donnelly and Natalie McQueen.

Set in Northampton and loosely based on a true story, ‘Kinky Boots’ tells the story of Charlie Price who reluctantly inherits his father’s failing shoe factory, Price & Sons. On the verge of bankruptcy, and not wanting to put his workers out of jobs, Charlie must find a way to save this business. Charlie bumps into a fabulous entertainer and drag queen who goes by the name of Lola, and the two get to talking. Turns out that not only has Lola become his inspiration but also the one person who can show him how to be the man that he is meant to be. They become unlikely friends and together they decide to create a unique line of sturdy stiletto boots. Can Charlie live up to his father’s legacy? Will they save the factory? Are the two more similar than they realise?

Whether you watch for the elaborate costumes (especially the shoes!), the dazzling choreography, or the beautiful story about compassion and friendship, you can’t deny that this show is fabulous!

History of Wrong Guys

This ‘History of Wrong Guys’ pin is inspired by the fan favourite ‘Kinky Boots’ song of the same name. Lauren, one of the workers in Charlie Price’s shoe factory, has fallen in love with her boss, an engaged man. But this isn’t the first time that the person she wants to date is less than ideal. In this showtune she lists all the reasons that her last relationships hadn’t worked in an effort to snap herself out of her fantasy that she could be with Charlie, because she always falls for the wrong guys and she’d rather not do that a seventh time… While she sings this and works through her thoughts, Lauren is still at work packing shoes into their boxes. Price & Sons, the shoe factory, uses easily recognisable dark green shoeboxes with a gold men’s shoe on the top, so naturally we decided to incorporate this into our pin design!
