Thanks, Peter. I’ve seen the 2005 film and enjoyed it (IMDb).

The piece tells the story of Price, who inherits a suffering shoe factory. Following a meeting with drag queen Lola, Price starts embracing a more flamboyant business model.

Peter, Jo Anne; I have a particular interest in this and have of course seen the film. I was a shoemaker at Lord and Sharman, Pemberton from 1969 to 1973. I had hoped to become a shoe designer as my moonlighting in art wasn't really getting me anywhere. But unfortunate events prevented it and and I left and eventually became a landscape design consultant, which enabled my to put my artistic background to some use. I am probably one of the few guys who look at womens' shoes and comment on their choice!
Anyway, Kinky Boots is a great story.

Me sing Tommy? I'd Have been booed of stage!
I might have been in the crowd at the Sportsman's attempting to sing after a few pints!
