Charlie Price has reluctantly inherited his father’s shoe factory, which is on the verge of bankruptcy. Trying to live up to his father’s legacy and save his family business, Charlie finds inspiration in the form of the fabulous entertainer Lola, and together they work out what is best for both of them.

With a book by Harvey Fierstein, Kinky Boots first premiered in 2012 in Chicago before opening on Broadway in 2013 where it ran until 2019.

The show opened in London at the Adelphi Theatre in 2015, finishing its run in January 2019 after more than 1,400 performances. A filmed proshot was released in 2019.

The new concert production will be part of a series running this summer alongside Chess and Treason.
