Award-winning musical Kinky Boots coming to Abbotsford

Show plays Abbotsford Centre on Wednesday, March 20

The Tony Award-winning musical Kinky Boots is making a stop in Abbotsford in the spring.

The show comes to Abbotsford Centre at 8 p.m. on Wednesday, March 20.

Kinky Boots is the winner of six 2013 Tony Awards, including Best Musical. It features a Tony Award-winning score by pop icon Cyndi Lauper, a book by Tony Award winner Harvey Fierstein, and direction and choreography by Tony Award winner Jerry Mitchell.

Inspired by true events, Kinky Boots tells the uplifting and heartwarming tale of Charlie Price, a young man reluctantly taking over his family’s struggling shoe factory and looking for a fresh idea.

Charlie is struggling to live up to his father’s expectations and continue the family business of Price & Son.

With the factory’s future hanging in the balance, help arrives in the unlikely but spectacular form of Lola, a fabulous performer in need of some sturdy new stilettos.

The production takes the audience from a gentlemen’s shoe factory in Northampton to the glamorous catwalks of Milan.

Kinky Boots has won every major Best Musical Award and is represented around the world with the Tony Award-winning Broadway company now in its fifth year, an Olivier Award-winning production in London, an Australian production that opened in October 2016, and an upcoming production in Germany.

Other previous productions include a U.S. national tour that played more than 80 cities, an Award-winning extended run in Toronto, two productions in Korea, and a Japanese language production.

Tickets for the Abbotsford show range from $49.50 to $119.50 (plus service charges).They are available online at ticketmaster.ca or by phone at 1-855-985-5000.
