Kinky Boots – A heartwarming true story

This show has thrilled audiences and critics alike, appealing powerfully to the American psyche and their love of triumph against adversity. Now the musical is transferring to London’s grand Adelphi theatre, from August 2015.

We love the story behind the show. It begins with a classy BBC documentary about a struggling Northamptonshire shoe factory. The story caught the imagination of movie makers and, in 2005, shot the factory to an unusual level of fame in the wonderful film.

W J Brookes' real life MD Steve Pateman has never forgotten the moment he realised the TV documentary in which his factory had starred was a massive hit with viewers. In his words: "On the day it went out the BBC brought me down to London to do a couple of interviews. The next day I was on the tube rushing for my train back to Northamptonshire when a guy recognised me and leant over to talk about the programme. Soon half the carriage was on about it. That's when I knew it had gripped people."

A total of Six Tony Awards, three Outer Critics Circle Awards, one Drama League Award, one Drama Desk Award and one Artois Award have made the musical a legend in its own lifetime. So what's all the fuss about, and how come a thoroughly British tale proved to have such a big appeal in the USA?

The New York Times said, “Cyndi Lauper… has created a love- and heat-seeking score that performs like a pop star on Ecstasy… From their entrances, the cast members build up a bank of good vibrations.

Time Out magazine New York called it, “The very model of a modern major musical! Irresistible, with a heart strong cast… Lauper is a musical-theater natural, combining bright, infectious melodies with simple but effective lyrics. As each act progresses, the energy rises palpably, boosted by a heart-strong cast.

Stage And Cinema magazine says, “It’s easy to see what attracted illustrious bookwriter Harvey Fierstein, composer/lyricist Cyndi Lauper and equally accomplished director/choreographer Jerry Mitchell to this lesser known (and much darker) 2005 film of the same name. The musical is a blue-collar, Cinderella story that puts its own spin on the feel-good.

Kinky Boots - The story

When a shoe factory hits the doldrums, struggling to survive, a new direction saves their bacon. Who could have guessed that the world's transgender community would hold their key to success?

London Box Office customer

Fabulous Music...Superb Performances All-Around

London Box Office customer

Delightful, Heartwarming and Memorable

In this age of increasing inclusiveness, the show was very timely to accept people of different backgrounds including sexual orientation. A contrast to the divisiveness that is going on in the United States, Russia and other autocratic countries.


London Box Office customer

Absolutely blinding show. Loved every minute Can’t wait to see it again.

Great storyline and singing was amazing. Loved the costumes. So wanted the boots!!!

Great Show

Fabulous show! Very much enjoyed this visit to the theatre. Fun and vibrant performance! Clever use of set design. We sat in the upper circle and still had a good view of the show. I take my god-daughter to the theatre every few years, she's now 20 and said it was the best show she'd seen. We had a great night and left with big smiles on our faces.

I saw a production of Kinky Boots in Thunder Bay Ontario the first time and I enjoyed this one just as much. It was excellent

London Box Office customer

It was alrate

It was good- but the seats made the sounding sound bad and the plot had holes and gaps. Not quite Hamilton, but it was fun to watch. Lola and the queen's were great.


London Box Office customer

Touching

Touching story. Music too loud, reason tinnitus.


London Box Office customer

Wonderful energy, uplifting show

Fantastic music, costumes and dancing. One for regular theatre goers and occasional visitors. Very funny, incredible dancing and catchy music. Everything you could want in a musical.

I took a group of teenagers and they have not stopped talking about it and singing the songs all day. They said they had the most amazing time.


London Box Office customer

Must See!!!

Kinky Boots is a wonderful story. It’s funny and worth watching. I would recommend it to anyone visiting the city. Kids might miss out on some of the jokes though.


London Box Office customer

Thoroughly Entertaining

Kinky Boots was a fabulous production. From the beginning to end it was thoroughly entertaining - funny, great story, exceptional acting by all. Our granddaughter is a mature 12 year old who loves acting and the theatre...this was the highlight of her first trip to the U.K.


London Box Office customer

Amazing talent!

Several of the performers blew us away and the story and music just get better and better throughout the show!


London Box Office customer

Absolutely fantastic, loved the storyline the acting, singing and music in general. Costumes fab.


London Box Office customer

Great show, need a new Charlie Price actor

Watched this show 5 times now and still absolutely love it! Good seats in row K on far right but did seem to have a view of the backs of the actors for some of the show. The singing as usual was amazing but the current Charlie price did not impress me with his acting abilities. Very robotic with no real expressions shining through, the precious actors were a lot better. He was a great singer but that was about it. Other than that a great time had by all!


London Box Office customer

Creative and fun show - full of laughs

London Box Office customer

Fantastic makes you want to dance and sing..

Feel good show. Fantastic from start to finish.


London Box Office customer

Not consistent with advertising

the story is entertaining yet when reading the summaries/advertisement, no where does it mention that the main theme, present in ALL scenes, is homosexuality or cross-dressing. I thought it would be about a store almost going bankrupt, etc, but the whole story revolves around acceptance of homosexuality.


London Box Office customer

Good music !!! Just see it !

London Box Office customer

Fabulous....

Great music, singing and dancing. Very entertaining, loved it will go and see it again . Good story with a feel good factor, funny too.

Great show about acceptance and being true to yourself l!

The show was awesome. A little slow in the beginning but it picked up marvelously. The dancing was amazing and Lola stole the show! Really great message about being true to yourself and accepting others.


London Box Office customer

Amazing

London Box Office customer

Wow! Amazing productions!

Saw the shows in NYC and London. Both were a superb array of talent. It takes a crew of talent in so many areas to present shows of this quality! Thank you!


London Box Office customer

Fabelhaft

London Box Office customer

Fantastic show

London Box Office customer

Wonderfully brought to life

The actors did justice to the great story. The music by Cindi Lauper is energetic and great. I even bought the CD. I had seats in the back row of the first balcony and while not great, they were good enough to get into it. I could lean forward if I needed to without worrying about blocking the view of the people behind me. Spring for good seats if you can.


London Box Office customer

Fun and heart-warming

An overall amazing show with likeable characters and really catchy music!


London Box Office customer

Wonderful

London Box Office customer

London Box Office customer

Big disappointment

Ok I don't know where to start .Before I buy tickets to this musical I read the reviews nobody's mentioned what is all about .And I so only very good reviews so I decided to take my 12 years old son and my partner .We where very excited to see and have great time . So when the show started my partner and son was completely shocked we all didn't expected to see transvestites. We don't have nothing wrong whit them but everything was so horrible. It's to much of word sex non stop and ho they are and what they do.I'm sorry but it needs a sign on the advertisement that all family's could understand what is all about and not spend big amount of money and get disappointed. It was waist of money and disgusting to see.


London Box Office customer

We loved it

It was so vibrant and fast paced, there was not a moment when I looked at my watch, the time flashed by. The singers and musicians were top notch.


London Box Office customer

Great

I am overwhelmed by the talent displayed in this beautiful story. The songs and vocal abilities are beyond the norm. Scene transitions are creative and add to the story. Loved the show!


London Box Office customer

Laugh out loud

Great music - laugh out loud moments. A really great show.


London Box Office customer

Easy watching, entertaining and good value for money

We decided to go on the spur of the moment as we were in London. Couldn’t get the same price at the booth as online so we booked on using our phone online and got a fantastic £19.50 per ticket with no fees, we collected 2 minutes later! The show is well worth the visit, we were in row m and could see properly. Cast, acting, music etc was good, would recommend.


London Box Office customer

Must See!

Absolutely spectacular cast, performance and sets! The music is wonderful, and the message of the store is even better. What better than a musical that uplifts you, makes you laugh and smile, all while opening your heart and mind. Not only do i recommend this to everyone as a must see, but i would come back to see it in a heartbeat!

High heels are back in vogue this summer, as Kinky Boots come to the West End!

09 Feb 2015

Kinky Boots - Adelphi Theatre Finally, all speculation and rumors have been proved right, with the announcement that Broadway big-hitter Kinky Boots will open in the West End this summer. The screen-to-stage adaptation is due to arrive in August at the Adelphi Theatre, the current home to another British film-to-stage musical, Made in Dagenham.

Hit Broadway musical Kinky Boots looks for a London home

20 Nov 2014

Kinky Boots London There were reports a few months back that the multi Tony Award-winning new musical Kinky Boots would be making the long journey over the Atlantic to London’s West End.

The latest news is that the planned transfer of the show with music by Cyndi Lauper is delayed, but still going ahead. The hold-up seems to be down to finding a West End venue to house the production, as every theatre is currently hosting all manner of musical, plays, dance and opera. The producers of the hit Broadway musical will be banking on a production closing in London’s theatreland, paving the way for Kinky Boots, bringing the British made story back home.

The West End will stay Kinky for longer

30 Jun 2015

Kinky Boots Producers of the West End premiere of Broadway hit Kinky Boots have announced that the production has extended booking at the Adelphi Theatre, even before the show has even opened!

Review: Kinky Boots

09 Sep 2015

Kinky Boots - London Welcome home ‘Kinky Boots’. The 2013 Tony Award winning Best Musical has landed in the United Kingdom and has definitely benefited from the journey home. When I first saw this show, which is set in Northampton, in previews on Broadway, and then again recently in Toronto with the Canadian cast, I couldn’t help but feel that a certain Britishness was lacking in both productions...
