About the show

“Everybody Say Yeah,” – Kinky Boots finally makes its hotly anticipated West End transfer to London’s Adelphi Theatre following Tony Award winning success on Broadway and a huge North American tour, having swiftly become one of the hottest tickets in town.

Kinky Boots is based on the 2005 film of the same name and has been adapted into a stage musical by pop star Cyndi Lauper and writer Harvey Fierstein, with direction and choreography by Jerry Mitchell.

Like the film, Kinky Boots is inspired by true events. Set in a shoe factory, new owner Charlie Price is struggling to live up to his father’s legacy. Having dreamt of moving to London with his pushy fiancé Nicola, the last thing he expected to be doing was making shoes for a living, a trade which he knows very little about.

Feeling as if he is letting down both his father and his employees, Charlie struggles to keep the business afloat. That is until he meets an unlikely partner in Lola, a performing drag artist, who is in dire need of a sturdy shoe to support his weight. Can Charlie and Lola work together to create the ultimate fashionable shoe or “kinky boot?” And will Nicola be able to cope with her absentee husband to be?

West End favourite, Killian Donnelly (Phantom of the Opera, Les Miserables, The Commitments, Memphis) established the role of Charlie on the West End, with Matt Henry as Lola and Amy Lennox as Lauren. Since then there has been various cast changes, including current cast Oliver Tompsett (Wicked) as Charlie Price, Simon-Anthony Roden as Lola, Natalie McQueen as Lauren, Sean Needham as Don, Cordelia Farnworth as Nicola and Antony Reed as George.

Kinky Boots is an uplifting musical with standout show tunes such as “Sex is in the Heel,” “The History of Wrong Guys,” “Everybody Say Yeah,” and “Raise You Up/Just Be.”

Kinky Boots is one of the most fun and exciting musicals on the West End right now, so don't miss out and get your tickets now.
