Inspired by true events, Kinky Boots goes from a gentlemen’s shoe factory in Northampton to the glamorous catwalks of Milan.

Charlie Price 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 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 including three Olivier Awards, three WhatsOnStage Awards as well as six Broadway Tony Awards.

The musical is based on the 2005 film Kinky Boots, written by Geoff Deane and Tim Firth. Directed by Julian Jarrold it stared Joel Edgerton as Charlie with Chiwetel Ejiofor as Lola.
