Drayton Entertainment Came to Slay the Kinky Boots the House Down


From Broadway to Cambridge Ontario, Kinky Boots continues to tell the true story of how Big City Life can be embraced by a place known mostly for its industry. The story of the Price and Son shoe factory that needs to be saved to keep the townspeople employed could easily take place in Cambridge Ontario, home of Babcock and Wilcox and the Toyota Manufacturing plant. Last night's opening of the Tony Award-Winning Musical landed with a heart-stopping thud and thunderous applause at Drayton Entertainment's Hamilton Family Theatre. The atmosphere was electric with performances by Sayer Roberts as the easily frustrated Charlie Price, Jos N. Banks as Lola the drag queen that came to slay and KW's own AJ Bridel who brought the house down with her rendition of Lauren's The History of Wrong Guys.  Hear their thoughts on Kinky Boots in the video below.

Combining the creative genius of legendary musician Cyndi Lauper and the compelling storytelling of Harvey Fierstein, Kinky Boots delivers an uplifting tale of friendship, courage, and finding one's true self in unexpected places.

Based on a true story, this uplifting mega-musical chronicles the story of Charlie Price, who is struggling to save the men’s shoe factory inherited from his father in Northampton, England.  When all seems lost, a chance encounter with the dazzling drag queen Lola spurs an outrageous idea for creating “women’s boots for women who are men.”  With a little compassion and a lot of understanding, this unexpected pair eventually embrace their differences and outfit themselves for success by creating a sparkling line of sturdy stilettos unlike any the world has ever seen. 

Don’t miss this fresh, fabulous, feel-good musical that will lift you up!

With fun Drayton Entertainment touches like photo opps and signature cocktails, Kinky Boots shows the world that you can't judge a book by its cover but you can definitely define a boot by its heel and sex appeal.
