This is the South African premiere production of the multiple Tony Award-winning musical, which due to overwhelming demand, has been extended at the Fugard Theatre until 2 February 2020.

Kinky Boots features a Tony-winning score by Cyndi Lauper and a book by four-time Tony winner, Harvey Fierstein. Winner of the Tony Award for Best Musical, Tony Award for Best Original Score, Tony Award for Best Choreography and Laurence Olivier Award for Best New Musical, Kinky Boots has played to sold out houses on Broadway and in the West End since 2013. This mega-hit is a must see for all Musical Theatre fans.

The production tells the story of an unlikely friendship between Charlie Price who has reluctantly inherited his father’s failing shoe factory, and drag queen Lola, a fabulous entertainer in need of some sturdy stilettos. As they work to turn the factory around, the pair finds that they have more in common than they ever dreamed possible, and discover that when you change your mind about someone, you can change your whole world.
