The UK premiere of the multi-award winning, high-heeled hit Kinky Boots will open at the West End’s Adelphi Theatre on September 15, 2015  

The much-loved, feel-good musical is coming to London 

With music and lyrics by pop sensation Cyndi Lauper, a book by four-time Tony Award-winner Harvey Fierstein and with the two-time Tony Award-winner Jerry Mitchell behind the choreography and direction, it’s hardly surprising Kinky Boots has one multiple awards.

As well as picking up the 2013 Tony Award for Best Musical, Kinky Boots enjoyed further honour the following year, winning the 2014 Grammy Award for Best Musical Theatre Album.

No-stop fun and outrageous glamour

This feel-good musical that’s loaded with relentless vibrancy and fun is inspired by true life events. The story is focused on Charlie Price, who is the reluctant heir of a shoe factory in Northampton, given to him by his father.

Determined to make a success of the business and to live up to his father’s legacy, Charlie turns to his fabulously flamboyant friend, cabaret star, Lola.

The unlikely duo work together to turn the fate of the factory around, filling its walls with sensational, sparkling and daring footwear, marking a turn in the tides for the dwindling factory.

Friendship, passion and inspiration

Kinky Boots is an optimistic and motivating musical which explores friendship, passion and inspiration in the most unlikely of places.

Talking of bringing the musical to the West End, Jerry Mitchel, the show’s director and choreographer, said:

“I am delighted to see this big-spirited musical arrive in London. Kinky Boots is very close to my heart, and I am really looking forward to staging it here with a British cast.”

Kinky Boot’s producers, Daryl Roth and Hal Luftig, are equally as ecstatic, stating:

“We are thrilled and deeply honoured to be bringing Kinky Boots back home to British shores, where this inspirational story is set. The show is big-hearted and filled with joy and we thrust that it will be warmly embraced by audiences in the UK.”

Kinky Boots will open at the Adelphi Theatre on 15 September, with previews from 21 August 2015. Book your tickets now.
