Eric Abraham and the Fugard Theatre will present a brand new, original production of Kinky Boots, the smash-hit musical by Harvey Fierstein and Cyndi Lauper. With performances set to run from 11 June 2019, The Fugard is offering musical theatre lovers the chance to snap up a fabulous early bird ticket special until 31 October 2018.
This early bird special, which is exclusively available by contacting The Fugard Theatre’s box office by phone on 021 461 4554 or by email, enables audiences to purchase four premium priced tickets, regularly priced at R470 per ticket, at only R300 per ticket for performances after 27 June 2019.
Winner of six Tony Awards, including Best Musical and Best Original Score, Kinky Boots tells the story of Charlie Price, who has reluctantly inherited his father’s shoe factory, Price & Son, which is on the verge of bankruptcy. Trying to live up to his father’s legacy and save his family business, Charlie finds inspiration in the form of Lola, a fabulous entertainer in need of some sturdy stilettos. As they work to turn the factory around, this unlikely pair find that they have more in common than they ever dreamed possible, and discover that when you change your mind about someone, you can change your whole world.
The Fugard Theatre’s Kinky Boots is brought to Cape Town audiences by the same creative team behind the Fugard Theatre productions of The Rocky Horror Show, Cabaret, Funny Girl and West Side Story. Direction is by Matthew Wild, with musical direction by Charl-Johan Lingenfelder and choreography by Louisa Talbot.
