KINKY BOOTS IS GETTING A TRANSFER
Kinky Boots has been playing at the Helsinki City Theatre since 2018, with every single performance being sold out. This new production has made musical theatre history in Finland, both artistically and in box office sales. More than 110 000 people have seen this critically acclaimed production - and since these boots were made for walking, Kinky Boots will continue its success story in 2020! The same production will transfer to Tampere, and performances will begin September 30th, 2020 at Tampereen Työväen Teatteri.
This transfer is historical as well, since cooperations like this have never been seen before on a scale like this. The Tampere production will include some of the original Helsinki cast members: Lauri Mikkola and Petrus Kähkönen will reprise their roles as Lola/Simon & Charlie, and many of the original Lola’s Angels will continue raising audiences up next year.
Kinky Boots has received multiple personal letters and comments from audience members of different ages, genders and backgrounds. Many of these have been personal stories about how the musical has affected their lives, and how they have learned to love themselves and others in a way they never thought possible. These reactions make this work important, and wants us to make better and better performances show after show. Thank you for loving our production, and thank you for sharing your personal experiences!
I am personally extremely happy about these news, and couldn’t be more proud of our team kinky! See you all next year! Until that, the sold out Helsinki production will keep the city kinky until May 11th.
The tickets for the Tampere production will go on sale May 13th, 2019. More information can be found here: https://www.ttt-teatteri.fi
