Filmed in London, it has been announced that the musical will be heading to cinema screens on the 4th and 9th February, with it being shown in 600 cinemas in the UK and Ireland.

Featuring songs by Grammy and Tony award winning pop icon Cyndi Lauper, book by legendary Broadway playwright Harvey Fierstein (La Cage Aux Folles), and direction and choreography by Jerry Mitchell (Legally Blonde, Hairspray), Kinky Boots is based on the 2005 film that featured a screenplay by Tim Firth.

The film features original leads Matt Henry and Killian Donnelly among the cast. Kinky Boots the Musical was recorded live for the cinema screen at the Adelphi Theatre, London in November 2018 by BroadwayHD, the US-based streaming service for live theatre, and directed by Brett Sullivan from
Steam Motion and Sound.

Inspired by true events, this huge-hearted hit tells the story of two people with nothing in common –or so they think. Charlie (Killian Donnelly) is a factory owner struggling to save his family business, and Lola (Matt Henry) is a fabulous entertainer with a wildly exciting idea. With a little compassion and a lot of understanding, this unexpected pair learn to embrace their differences and create a line of sturdy stilettos unlike any the world has ever seen! But in the end, their most sensational
achievement is their friendship.

The musical won three Olivier Awards in 2016 for Best New Musical, Best Costume Design and Best Actor in a Musical. Kinky Boots also won the London Evening Standard BBC Radio 2 Audience Award for Best Musical as well as three WhatsOnStage Awards for Best New Musical, Best Actor in a Musical and Best Choreography.
