UK premier of Kinky Boots musical

Date Posted: 09/02/2015

Inspired by the true story of Northampton’s shoe factory, the award-winning British-based musical will perform for the first time in the UK.

The upbeat musical will open in London’s West End on 15th September, at the Adelphi Theatre.

Based on the Miramax film, which was in turn inspired by true events, Kinky Boots will tell the story of Charlie Price, reluctant inheritor of his father’s failing shoe factory.

The toe-tapping production saunters onto UK stages with an impressive history of success, having won the 2013 Tony Award for Best Musical and the 2014 Grammy Award for Best Musical Theatre Album.

Featuring music and lyrics by Cyndi Lauper, Kinky Boots is directed and choreographed by two-time Tony Award winner Jerry Mitchell, who commented: "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."
