A first look at the filmed version of Kinky Boots The Musical has been revealed as it premieres in US cinemas.

The award-winning production has now closed both in London’s West End and on Broadway but not before a filmed performance took place for the big screen.

Taken from shows in November 2018 in London, the filmed version of the musical stars Original West End cast members Killian Donnelly and Matt Henry in the lead roles of Charlie and Lola.

Kinky Boots The Musical will premiere in San Francisco on June 22 before arriving in cinemas across the US on June 25 and June 29. You can purchase tickets here.

Details on UK screenings and release have yet to be confirmed, with the show currently on a 2019 UK tour until November.

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.

The original Broadway production received 13 nominations, winning four including Best Musical, while the West End production won three Laurence Olivier Awards and was nominated for four more.
