Walking past this shop window front just off Hindley Street I was immediately reminded of the Broadway Musical ‘Kinky Boots’ which is currently playing in Melbourne.
After Melbourne it will be Sydney and as usual Adelaide misses out.
The musical, inspired by true events, tells the story of Charlie Price who having inherited an ailing shoe factory from his father, forms an unlikely business partnership with cabaret performer and drag queen Lola. Together they produce a line of high-heeled boots and save the family business.
I’ve not seen the show myself but good friends of ours made a special trip to Melbourne recently just for the show and they thoroughly loved it.
This image is for them.
