Kinky Boots tickets on sale from Monday 2 March
Tickets for the UK première of Kinky Boots, Broadway’s huge-hearted, high-heeled hit, go on sale today, Monday 2 March. The production opens at London’s Adelphi Theatre on 15 September 2015, with previews from 21 August.
With a book by Broadway legend and four-time Tony® Award-winner Harvey Fierstein (La Cage Aux Folles), 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. 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 direction and choreography by two-time Tony® Award-winner Jerry Mitchell (Legally Blonde, Hairspray), Kinky Boots is the winner of six Broadway Tony® Awards including Best Musical, Best Score and Best Choreography.
Book writer, Harvey Fierstein said, “The inspiring story of Kinky Boots is about to complete its full circle journey from Northampton to the silver screen to Broadway and now, at last, back home to London. It’s been an absolute thrill to witness the giant heart of our show raise audiences up out of their seats in clamorous joy night after night all across the states. I can’t wait to experience its homecoming with our friends across the pond.”
Composer and lyricist, Cyndi Lauper said, “It has been a wonderful adventure and a privilege for me, to play a part in creating Kinky Boots. Everyone can relate to this universal story, and I am convinced that people in the UK are going to fall in love with it – and the music will hopefully get them tapping their toes!”
