The West End production of Kinky Boots will close on 12 January 2019 after more than 1400 performances at the Adelphi Theatre.

With music by Lauper and a book by Harvey Fierstein, Kinky Boots is based on the hit 2005 film with a screenplay by Tim Firth. It tells the story of Charlie Price, who inherits a suffering shoe factory. Following a meeting with drag queen Lola, Price starts embracing a more flamboyant business model. It won three Olivier Awards in 2016 for Best New Musical, Best Costume Design and Best Actor in a Musical for Matt Henry.

The current cast features Oliver Tompsett as Charlie Price, Natalie McQueen as Lauren and Simon-Anthony Rhoden as Lola.

The production recently announced a UK tour, which will begin at Royal and Derngate in Northampton in September.
