Video footage has been released offering a first look at the cast of Kinky Boots in rehearsals.

Casting for the musical, which opens at the Adelphi Theatre in September, stars Matt Henry as drag queen Lola, the role created on screen by Chiwetel Ejiofor. He'll be joined by Killian Donnelly, recently seen alongside Beverley Knight in Memphis, as Charlie.

Kinky Boots is adapted from the 2006 Brit flick about a drag queen who helps an ailing shoe company design a new line of sturdy fetish footwear.

It features songs by pop star Cyndi Lauper, a book by Harvey Fierstein and direction/choreography by Jerry Mitchell.

Kinky Boots opens at the Adelphi on 21 August 2015 ahead of press night on 15 September. For more information and to book tickets, click here.
