Kinky boots to make a debut at MICAM

Kinky Boots, the award-winning Broadway musical, will land in Italy in November, debuting at MICAM.

Inspired by a true story, Kinky Boots tells the story of a young footwear manufacturer, who through a truly “alternative” collection finds a way to relaunch his family business which is in dire straits. 

Presented for the first time in Italy, featuring the music of Cyndi Lauper and the Italian direction of Claudio Insegno, the show tells the story of the strange friendship between the young Charlie Price and the drag queen Lola, whose musical shows become the inspiration for the design of a collection of sensual boots for women, which are, however, able to bear the weight of a man en travesti. Thanks to the collection, the young manufacturer is able to realise his dream of reaching Milan and, specifically, its fair dedicated to this essential accessory.
The desire for redemption, the ability to dare, friendship, and openness to that which is different are just some of the themes that this lightest of musicals, winner of six Tony Awards, presents to its viewers. 

A story so unique and so strongly linked to the world of footwear, that it could only be welcomed with enthusiasm by MICAM, the very fair alluded to by the characters as their desired point of arrival into the world of international fashion. 

For this reason, MICAM wanted to sponsor the debut of the show which, from the end of November, will entertain and move viewers at the Teatro Nuovo in Milan.

Kinky Boots will continue its dialogue with the public again during Fashion Week. On September 21st at 6pm near the booth in Piazza San Babila, passers-by will be surprised by a dazzling dance and will become part of a musical-inspired flash-mob with a group of magnificent Drag Queens led by Lola herself.
