Kinky Boots will open to previews from 21 August 2015 with opening night 15 September 2015. Tickets go on sale from 2 March 2015. There is no significant news on casting, however with heavy criticism of the accents in the Broadway production director Jerry Mitchell is looking for an all-British cast - and all British accents! Mitchell said having worked on a number of UK shows, from Dirty Rotten Scoundrels to Legally Blonde, he already has a good sense of the breadth of talent of British actors, dancers and singers, but he is also always open to being surprised by new faces. As we reported in January, producers will be auditioning in February and March, including for the lead role of Lola. Kinky Boots features a score by pop superstar Cyndi Lauper and a book by four-time Tony winner Harvey Fierstein both of whom will be looking at the dialogue and lyrics to ensure no inappropriate Americanisms slip into what is a British-set show. Based on the acclaimed British film starring Chiwetel Ejiofor, Kinky Boots The Musical is a riotous new Broadway musical that is a feel-good celebration packed with nonstop fun... and a kick of pure joy!

Casting underway for Kinky Boots London
The producers of the London production of Kinky Boots have started casting the lead role of drag queen Lola. [caption id="" align="alignright" width="240"] Billy Porter as Lola in the Broadway production of Kinky Boots[/caption] Smash-hit Broadway show Kinky Boots is on its way to London! Daryl Roth and Hal Luftig, the producers of the Broadway show, along with UK general managers Playful Productions, have started the casting process for the London production of Kinky Boots, Slated to run in London from 21 August 2015, auditions will take place in February and March for July rehearsals. Producers are looking to cast a real star in the demanding lead role of Lola/Simon and are hoping that open auditions might throw up a gem. Billy Porter, who plays Lola in the Broadway production and bagged a Tony Award for his efforts, will not be coming to London to play the part as previously suggested. His contract did take him up to July 2014, meaning an August transfer to London could have been on the cards. But the star turn has recently renewed his contract to take him through to January 2016. Tony Award winner Jerry Mitchell (Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, Legally Blonde) will return to the show to direct and choreograph the London production. Based on the acclaimed British film starring Chiwetel Ejiofor, Kinky Boots The Musical won six Tony Awards on Broadway including Best Musical and features a score by pop superstar Cyndi Lauper and a book by four-time Tony winner Harvey Fierstein. Set in Northampton, the show concerns a young guy who takes over his father's ailing shoe factory. After a chance meeting with fabulous drag queen Lola, he forms a plan to save the factory despite opposition from workers and family. A London theatre is yet to be announced for the show, with several big venues currently being muted. BOOKING  Book tickets to Kinky Boots in London
