They’re joined by Natalie McQueen (Lauren), Sean Needham (Don), Cordelia Farnworth (Nicola) and Anthony Reed (George).

Completing the cast are Jak Allen-Anderson, Jonathan Carlton Daniel Downing, Jordan Fox, Rosie Glossop, David Haydn, Keith Higham, Graham Kent, Emma Odell, Temba Mliswa, Sean Needham, Hannah Price, Anthony Reed, Jon Reynolds, Anna Stolli, Charlie Underhill and Olivia Winterflood.

Kinky Boots The Musical premiered in the US earlier this year and now is heading to cinemas across the UK in February 2020. You can purchase tickets here from More2Screen.

A first trailer is available to watch below…

With a score written by Cyndi Lauper and a book by Harvey Fierstein, Kinky Boots has proved a huge hit both on Broadway and the West End. The show recently wrapped up in London in January 2019 after three years and more than 1,400 performances.

Kinky Boots tells the story of Charlie Price, who inherits a struggling shoe factory in Northampton. Following a chance encounter with a drag queen named Lola, Price looks to try and save the factory by embracing a more flamboyant business model.

Book writer Harvey Fierstein said: “Since the first performance of Kinky Boots, hardly a day has passed without my receiving a thank you message from someone whose spirits were raised up by the show. Kinky Boots has been playing in big cities all over the world but now, thanks to this film capture, it will reach people wherever there are cinemas. I am beyond excited!”

Composer Cyndi Lauper added: “It has been an absolute joy and a privilege for me to play a part in creating Kinky Boots The Musical. This show has a giant heart and I am so grateful that people in the UK have embraced this universal story with open arms.”

CEO and Founder of More2Screen, Christine Costello, commented: “We’re delighted to bring this fabulous award-winning West End stage show to cinemas across the UK and Ireland in 2020. With its heart-warming story and stellar performances, Kinky Boots The Musical will be a hot ticket for the cinema audience.”
