Star of the Month

Matt Henry is currently giving a career defining performance in the West End transfer of Broadway hit Kinky Boots. From his first entrance to his final bow, Henry is on fire and fully commands the stage. His vocals are sublime whilst his comic timing brings the house down on countless occasions. Kinky Boots is Matt Henry's show and he smashes it out the park, giving what is probably the top performance of 2015 so far.

It's a double whammy for Kinky Boots in this month's round-up! Telling a story of love and acceptance, Kinky Boots shatters stereotypes. Praise the lord for director/choreographer Jerry Mitchell who - following I Can't Sing/Stephen Ward/Bend It Like Beckham - is showing us Brits how it's done. Kinky Boots feels at home in London; it is the best new musical to have opened in the West End for years and has all the necessary ingredients to be a monster hit. London is officially KINKY!
