Kinky Boots announces UK tour

We are thrilled that Kinky Boots will embark on a UK tour from autumn 2018.

The tour will open at Royal & Derngate in Northampton on 19 September 2018, returning to the home of this story, before travelling to Wolverhampton, Newcastle, Manchester, Edinburgh, Canterbury, Stoke-on-Trent and Bristol with more venues to be announced at a later date.

Kinky Boots at the Adelphi Theatre has become a favourite with UK theatregoers having won three Olivier Awards for Best New Musical, Best Costume Design and Best Actor in a Musical. Kinky Boots also won the London Evening Standard BBC Radio 2 Audience Award for Best Musical as well as three WhatsOnStage Awards for Best New Musical, Best Actor in a Musical and Best Choreography.

Inspired by true events, Kinky Boots takes you from a gentlemen’s shoe factory in Northampton to the glamorous catwalks of Milan. Charlie Price is struggling to live up to his father’s expectations and continue the family business of Price & Son. With the factory’s future hanging in the balance, help arrives in the unlikely but spectacular form of Lola, a fabulous performer in need of some sturdy new stilettos.

With a book by Broadway legend and four-time Tony® Award-winner Harvey Fierstein, and songs by Grammy® and Tony® winning pop icon Cyndi Lauper, this joyous musical celebration is about the friendships we discover, and the belief that you can change the world when you change your mind.

With direction and choreography by two-time Tony® Award-winner Jerry Mitchell, Kinky Boots is the winner of every major Best Musical award including three Olivier Awards, three WhatsOnStage Awards as well as six Broadway Tony® Awards.

Kinky Boots will be produced by Daryl Roth, Hal Luftig and Playful Productions, in association with Cameron Mackintosh.
