It was already highly anticipated before it was officially announced thanks to the rumours that circulated for over a year, but audiences finally have the chance to see Broadway hit Kinky Boots when it plays at the Adelphi Theatre in London’s West End. The show has music and lyrics from the famous 80s pop star Cyndi Lauper and a book by the well known performer Harvey Fierstein, whilst Jerry Mitchell directs.

The musical previously played on the other side of the Atlantic, both in Chicago and New York, and has also been staged in other locations around the world, but now it is the turn of London theatregoers to pick up theatre tickets.

The story takes audiences to the shoe factory owned by Charlie Price, who has recently inherited it from his father, and follows his attempts to change its fortunes. The business is proving less than stellar and if he wants to save it he may have to take unexpected measures. This is where a surprising partnership comes into play as drag queen Lola is brought in with some outrageous shoe designs and big ideas. But it might be more than the company that is saved by her arrival as there is more to her than first appears.

The musical features songs such as Land Of Lola, Not My Father’s Son, In This Corner and What A Woman Wants, among others.

Cyndi Lauper is well known for her 80s pop songs like Girls Just Want To Have Fun, though she has also had success onscreen and onstage with films like The Opportunists and shows like The Threepenny Opera on Broadway. Meanwhile, Harvey Fierstein has written for stage productions like La Cage Aux Folles, A Catered Affair and more. He has also worked as an actor in the likes of Independence Day and Mrs Doubtfire.

With Kinky Boots they adapt the well known 2005 British film of the same name, meaning that the show is the latest in a long line of hits that have their origin on the screen, from Billy Elliot The Musical to The Lion King.

Kinky Boots is at the Adelphi Theatre from Tuesday 15th September 2015 (with previews beginning on Friday 21st August 2015).
