★★★★★ DIE BURGER

★★★★★ ”The Fugard Theatre’s Kinky Boots is breathtaking: staging, lighting, design, choreography, knockout performances” THE CAPE ROBYN

"The show is socially and politically attuned to the times, but this message simmers in the background while the song, dance, glitz and glamour render it sparkling entertainment. Everything, from the costumes, the choreography, the lighting, the set, and of course the performances, is faultless ... South African visionary director Matthew Wild has coaxed the best out of everyone on the stage, no matter how brief or small a part they perform. It took two years to find the right people for the right parts and it shows." DAILY MAVERICK

"Kinky Boots is a visual and auditory feast. Without a doubt, this show is the most dynamic stage performance I have seen this year.” CAPE TOWN INSIDER

"Cape Town can't stop talking about Kinky Boots ... Director Matthew Wild turns the Fugard stage into a lustrous slice-of-life playground where the only chemistry stronger than Lola's outfit combinations is between the ensemble itself. " BROADWAYWORLD

"There is much more to Kinky Boots than a mere display of glitter: this show is worth every one of the several awards it’s garnered, and the South African production does it proud." WEEKEND SPECIAL

"Kinky Boots will have you unleashing your inner queen ... Every moment on the stage is beautifully crafted" IOL
