West End musicals Kinky Boots and Wicked have both announced new booking periods.
Sometimes, however much you like the genre, a musical fails to capture your imagination or engage you in the way it should. So maybe it’s my fault that Kinky Boots comes over as trite, derivative, musically juvenile, borderline offensive in its camp stereotyping, and wholly unworthy of a West End stage.
It takes seasoned performer Matt Henry (Olivier award winner, Best Actor In a Musical) as feisty drag queen Lola to kick Kinky Boots back into high gear. Ultimately this musical works best when allowed to go the whole hog, camp as Christmas and twice as fabulous.

The glory of the night for me came in the form of 15 past Best Actress in a Musical winners filing onto the stage at the Royal Opera House to sing “What I Did for Love” from A Chorus Line. A wonderful mix of stars who each brought something to the emotional number. Among them were super-talented ladies and favourites: Joanna Riding, Katie Brayben, Maria Friedman, Ruthie Henshall, Janie Dee, Sharon D Clarke and Samantha Spiro. I was particularly overjoyed to see Sara Crowe and Nichola McAuliffe in the line-up, because you don’t necessarily link them with musical theatre, yet both are real triple threats.
