“Dazzling, fabulously sassy and uplifting” - Time Out
The critically acclaimed Kinky Boots The Musical, the winner of every Best Musical award, will be screened at The Rhumbelow Theatre. With songs from Grammy and Tony® award winning pop icon Cyndi Lauper, book by legendary Broadway playwright Harvey Fierstein (La Cage Aux Folles), and direction and choreography by Jerry Mitchell (Legally Blonde, Hairspray), Kinky Boots The Musical stars the original West End leads, Matt Henry and Killian Donnelly.
“An absolute hoot of a show” - The Times
Inspired by true events, this huge-hearted hit tells the story of two people with nothing in common – or so they think. Charlie (Killian Donnelly) is a factory owner struggling to save his family business, and Lola (Matt Henry) is a fabulous entertainer with a wildly exciting idea. With a little compassion and a lot of understanding, this unexpected pair learn to embrace their differences and create a line of sturdy stilettos unlike any the world has ever seen! But in the end, their most sensational achievement is their friendship. This unmissable musical theatre event celebrates a joyous story of British grit transforming into a high-heeled hit as it takes you from the factory floor of Northampton to the glamorous catwalks of Milan!
Kinky Boots The Musical , The stage production was filmed live for the cinema screen at the Adelphi Theatre, London in November 2018 by BroadwayHD, the US-based streaming service for live theatre, and directed by Brett Sullivan from Steam Motion and Sound.
Harvey Fierstein today said, ‘Since the first performance of Kinky Boots, hardly a day has passed without my receiving a thank you message from someone whose spirits were raised up by the show. Kinky Boots has been playing in big cities all over the world but now, thanks to this film capture, it will reach people wherever there are cinemas. I am beyond excited!”
Cyndi Lauper also said, ’It has been an absolute joy and a privilege for me to play a part in creating Kinky Boots The Musical. This show has a giant heart and I am so grateful that people in the UK have embraced this universal story with open arms.’
