Kinky Boots set to strut into Wolverhampton next year


Kinky Boots is set to strut into Wolverhampton next year as the multi-award winning musical have announced plans to bring the electric show to the West Midlands.

The hugely successful production will take to the stage at Wolverhampton Grand Theatre next Autumn.

Since Kinky Boots has been on stage at London's Adelphi Theatre, the show has become a favourite amongst UK theatre lovers, having won three Oliver Awards for Best New Musical, Best Costume Design and Best Actor in a Musical.

With a book by Broadway legend Harvey Fierstein and songs by pop icon Cyndi Lauper, the joyous musical celebration is about the friendships we discover, and the belief that you can change the world when you change your mind.

Inspired by true events, Kinky Boots takes the audience from a gentleman's shoe factory in Northampton to the glamorous catwalks of Milan. The story follows Charlie Price, who is struggling to live up to his father's expectations and continue the family business of Price & Son.

With the factory's future hanging in the balance, help arrives in the unlikely but spectacular form of Lola, a performer in need of some sturdy new stilettos.

With direction and choreography by two-time Tony Award-winner Jerry Mitchell, who is behind the likes of Legally Blonde and Hairspray, it is set to be a hugely successful tour.

The tour will begin in Northampton in September 2018, before making its way over to Wolverhampton the following month.

Book writer Harvey Firestein, said: "The inspiring story of Kinky Boots will soon complete its full circle journey from Northampton to the silver screen to Broadway and London and now, at lest, back home to Northampton as it embarks on a national UK tour. How often does that happen?

"It's been an absolute thrill to witness the giant heart of our show raise audiences up out of their seats in clamorous joy night after night in the West End."

Kinky Boots takes to the stage at the Wolverhampton Grand Theatre from Tuesday 16 - Saturday 27 October, 2018. Find tickets here
