The West End production of Kinky Boots The Musical will close on 12 January 2019 after more than 1400 performances at the Adelphie Theatre.

The award winning production officially opened on 15 September 2015 to raptuous applause and critical acclaim with West End star Killian Donnelly (Les Miserables, The Commitments) playing Charlie Price and unknown Matt Henry in the role of Lola.

Henry picked up the Olivier Award for Best Actor in a Musical, with the show also winning Best New Musical and Best Costume Design.

With music by Cyndi Lauper and a book by Harvey Fierstein, Kinky Boots is based on the hit 2005 film with a screenplay by Tim Firth. It tells the story of Charlie Price, who inherits a suffering shoe factory. Following a meeting with drag queen Lola, Price starts embracing a more flamboyant business model.

Prior to its West End outing, the musical premiered on Broadway in April 2013 winning six Tony Awards including Best Musical, Best Score and Best Choreography.

The current cast features Oliver Tompsett (Wicked, We Will Rock You) as Charlie Price, Natalie McQueen as Lauren and Simon-Anthony Rhoden as Lola.
