The 6 ‘Kinky Boots’ Moments That Will ‘Raise You Up’


Kinky Boots” is guaranteed to lift your spirits with songs and powerful messages of acceptance. Here are our top six moments from the show that give us all the feels.

1. Always follow your heart, but never forget your roots.

Even though Charlie chooses not to follow the exact same career as his father, his dad eventually toasts to his journey and accepts that he should let Charlie discover his own path.

“Shoes can protect a man’s journey, but only his heart can choose the path. And so a toast to our own Charlie. May you never fail to point your shoes back home.”

Always chase your dreams, but never forget where you came from.



2. One moment can change your entire life.

As Charlie was struggling to follow in his father’s footsteps at his failing shoemaking factory, he began thinking he had no option but to close the business. Then came the phone call that would change Charlie’s fortune. After his first encounter with the spectacular drag queen, Lola, he realises there may be a major gap in the shoe market. Filling that gap could help him save his factory and jobs!

“We may be facing the impossible. We may be chasing after miracles. And there may be the steepest mountain to overcome. But this is step one.”

We all are rooting for you Charlie!

3. Something can be made out of absolutely nothing.

Just when things are looking bleak for the factory, with a little bit of luck and a little bit of leather, Charlie has made something special and unique. All that’s missing from the shoe is a heel.

4. We all have something in common.


It’s not always all glitz and glam. In a lovely moment among glitter and drag, Charlie and Lola discover that they have more in common with each other than they originally thought. Even if it meant going against what their fathers wanted for them, they both decided to take their own paths in life. At the show, listen out for the beautiful song, “I’m Not My Father’s Son.” We’re crying, and you will be too.

5. You can change the world if you put your mind up to it.

When Dom challenges Lola to a boxing match to prove he is a real man, Lola’s challenge in return is simple: Accept someone for who they are. This is a point that is brought up many times in “Kinky Boots”. Changing the world is as simple as changing your mindset.

6. Just be yourself.

“Kinky Boots” is a show with a warm heart and an even warmer motto. “Pursue the truth, learn something new, accept yourself and you’ll accept others too. Let love shine, let pride by your guide...you can change the world if you change your mind!”

There are many heartwarming moments throughout the entirety of “Kinky Boots”. Take a trip to the factory this season to see this sensational, award-winning show! Find cheap London theatre tickets as a gift this holiday season, or as a special treat for yourself to see this uplifting show.
