“Everybody Say Yeah” to the achievements of Olivier Award-winning musical Kinky Boots, who this week are enjoying sparkly-booted celebrations of 1000 West End performances (as of tonight, Monday 15 January), 1,000,000 West End customers, and a new booking period until Saturday 30 June 2018.

The Adelphi Theatre hit has lit up Theatreland’s Strand since August 2015 with its infectiously feelgood message and love of all things red, becoming a favourite with UK theatregoers. In the course of its run, Kinky Boots has won three Olivier Awards for Best New Musical, Best Costume Design and Best Actor in a Musical for Matt Henry (who previously played Lola), as well as numerous other accolades in the West End.

With a book by Broadway legend and four-time Tony Award-winner Harvey Fierstein (La Cage Aux Folles), and songs by the Grammy and Tony-winning pop legend 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 you from a gentlemen’s shoe factory in Northampton to the glamorous catwalks of Milan. Charlie Price (David Hunter) 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 (Simon-Anthony Rhoden), a fabulous performer in need of some sturdy new stilettos.

With direction and choreography by two-time Tony Award-winner Jerry Mitchell (Legally Blonde, Hairspray), Kinky Boots is the winner of every major Best Musical award, as well as six Tony Awards on Broadway.
