Talking about the show, Cyndi said that it had been a 'privilege' for her to play a part in creating Kinky Boots.

"Everyone can relate to this universal story, and I am overwhelmed that people in the UK have embraced it with open arms. I am thrilled that this fabulous show will be touring the country,” she said.

The production is inspired by true events, and follows the story of Charlie Price who inherits the family business after his father dies. He is not interested in shoes or the failing business, until a transvestite cabaret singer inspires Charlie to save the factory by producing 'alternative' footwear.
