Nyoy Volante takes ‘Kinky Boots’ to new heights, heels and all (Interaksyon)

I got really lucky and was able to catch the Philippine staging of Kinky Boots. I wanted to see it only because I knew the songs were written by Cyndi Lauper. I knew nothing else of the musical except it won a lot of Tony awards. But that was it. And the show is so wonderful and incredible and such a joy to watch.

Nyoy Volante kills it as Lola in the Philippine staging of Kinky Boots

It’s my first time to see Nyoy Volante on stage and he was fantastic. I can’t stop saying it. His performance was not a caricature. It was measured and multi-layered and nuanced. It was such a lovely portrayal filled with class and chutzpah and verve. He deserved his standing ovation.

The whole show did. I would watch it again if I could afford it.

On its last weekend at the RCBC theater. Catch it. It’s wonderful.
