Farewell, Kinky Boots

On 12th January at 7.30pm the Price and Sons Factory opens its doors for the last time at the Adelphi Theatre on London's glittering West End. After three wonderful years, Kinky Boots the musical leaves London and for me personally and for many others too it will be a hard day to swallow.

As I have written previously in a separate blog post Kinky Boots is one of my favourite musicals ever due to the message it holds at its core. The message behind the musical as previously mentioned in my prior post the message in Kinky Boots is all about acceptance, that of yourself and everyone else.


In total I have seen the show 3 times on the west end and one additional time on tour and I am grateful to the show for a lot of things. It has been one of my happy places for the past three years an has introduced me to many actors that I am now in love with and will continue to follow them and their performances as they go forwards with their endeavours.



I have been to two cast changes for the show and each time the cast changed I shed a few tears as it was a bit like the end of an era...but this time will be different because it's the end of the biggest era. The show will no longer be playing at the Adelphi and it will be replaced with a new show, which I'm sure in time I will return and see and maybe even gain new memories that I can hold in my heart but for now my heart will be a little bit broken for a while.



I am going to be there in the audience for that final show to give my thanks to a show that has shaped me in the past three years with the biggest cheers that I can muster. There will tears of happiness and sadness shed by me but I know that the audience will be full of fans like me who are grateful for everyone on that stage for performing this great show one more time and also grateful to everyone behind the scenes and the creative team too for bringing this amazing show to London for the past three years.

Goodbye and Farewell Kinky Boots, you will be sorely missed.
