After a long journey in which the story has been told on cinema screens, Broadway and various destinations around the world, the story of Kinky Boots now takes pride of place in London’s West End.

Harvey Fierstein and Cyndi Lauper’s hit musical that is based on the 2005 hit British film runs at the Adelphi Theatre and following its fortunes in New York it can now add London to its long list of successful locations.

After all, it joins a host of other high profile musicals that had their origins on the big screen, from School of Rock to Aladdin, and it is clear that audiences love seeing these tested stories in a new setting.

With Kinky Boots audiences are introduced to the character of Charlie Price and the plot is centred on the shoe factory that he has inherited from his father. The business is failing and it is up to Charlie to turn its luck around, but to do so he may have to take an unexpected step by putting together a surprising partnership. Enter Lola, a drag queen with some outrageous ideas, who might have what it takes to change the company’s story. But it’s not just the company that she has an effect on; she also changes Charlie for the better as it is clear that they have more in common with one another than first thought.

Cyndi Lauper won a Tony Award for Best Score for Kinky Boots when it previously appeared on the other side of the Atlantic and this was the latest in a long line of successes for the well known pop star, who had many hits in the 1980s. She is perhaps best known for songs like Girls Just Want To Have Fun and True Colors, among others, as well as albums like She’s So Unusual, but she has also made a name for herself outside of the charts as well. She has appeared in films like The Opportunists and in stage shows such as The Threepenny Opera on Broadway.

Fierstein and Lauper’s musical version of Kinky Boots, under the direction of Jerry Mitchell, continues performances at the Adelphi Theatre in London’s West End.
