Kinky Boots: The Musical

Director: Jerry Mitchell & Brett Sullivan
2019 | UK | 124m

Broadway babies and footwear fans rejoice! Come thrill to the world premiere screening of the raucous and heartwarming musical that won nearly every major award including the Tony, the Grammy, and London's Olivier. In this rousing performance, captured live in HD at London's Adelphi Theatre, Kinky Boots: The Musical feels made for the big screen. With a book by Broadway legend and four-time Tony Award winner Harvey Fierstein (La cage aux folles), songs by Grammy and Tony Award-winning pop icon Cyndi Lauper, and direction and choreography by two-time Tony Award winner Jerry Mitchell (Legally Blonde, Hairspray), this joyful musical journey tells the (based-on-a-true) story of a backwater shoe factory fallen on hard times, and the unlikely heroine who tries to rescue it: feisty drag queen Lola, kicking up her red hip-high boots and betting the future on her fabulous fetish-y creations.

This unique screening features original West End leads Killian Donnelly (as shoemaker's scion Charlie) and Matt Henry, who won the Olivier Award for his performance as Lola. It's a colorful romp in red boots, and a surefire memorable theatrical experience at the Castro.
