KINKY BOOTS OPENS IN TAMPERE, FINLAND
In May 2019, it stood clear that KINKY BOOTS was to transfer from Helsinki City Theatre to Tampereen Työväen Teatteri, in the fall of 2020. The success show from Helsinki was going to be given a new life, and what a life it’s been given!
We all know that times are devastating for the arts industry, and while a lot of rehearsals and productions got put on hold this year in Finland, KINKY BOOTS got around it with rehearsals right before the breakout of the virus this spring. And when theatres started to open their doors for audiences again in the end of the summer, our production was planned to enter the last weeks of rehearsals before opening in the end of September – an opening night to remember.
KINKY BOOTS is a show that bring joy to people, both on and off stage, and joy is something we always need to feel, but especially right now. The happiness and warmth the show gave audiences in Helsinki is now heating up the auditorium in Tampere too. I am so proud of this show, the team behind it, and especially proud to see a transfer like this to happen in Finland. The importance of this show in today’s society, with a message of acceptance, is crucial. The show has changed people’s life, and now once it has opened again, we are here to keep spreading that positivity and making Tampere kinky!
