A casting call has been sent out for Kinky Boots, revealing that the screen-to-stage musical is set to open in the West End in the autumn.

The show, which premiered on Broadway in 2013, features music by Cyndi Lauper, a book by Harvey Fierstein and direction/choreography by Jerry Mitchell.

The casting call, which has been leaked online, reveals that the first preview will be "on or about 21 August 2015". No venue is given.

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

Produced by Daryl Roth and Hal Luftig, Kinky Boots will reportedly be booking for an initial 12-month period from the first preview performance.
