Adelphi Theatre London Kinky Boots Tickets
Adelphi Theatre London
The first building opened on 27th November 1806, in its early years, the theatre was primarily known for melodrama, titled Adelphi Screamers. Many of Charles Dickens stories were adapted for the stage and performed here.
During 1993, Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Really Useful Group bought the theatre and completely refurbished it prior to the opening of his adaptation of Sunset Boulevard.
In November 1997, the Adelphi London West End became home to the musical Chicago which was the venue’s longest ever running production during its 8 1/2 year run. In April 2006, Chicago transferred to the Cambridge Theatre. Since then, productions at The Adelphi Theatre have included Evita, Pet Sounds, Joseph and The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Love Never Dies, and The Bodyguard. The current production is Kinky Boots.
Since winning the 2016 Olivier Award for Best New Musical, Kinky Boots is now the winner of every major Best Musical award and is the hottest show in town!
With songs by Grammy® and Tony® winning pop icon Cyndi Lauper, this fabulous musical celebration is about the friendships we discover, and the belief that you can change the world when you change your mind.
Inspired by true events, Kinky Boots takes you from the factory floor to the glamorous catwalks of Milan. Charlie Price, played by David Hunter (Once; One Man, Two Guvnors), is struggling to live up to his father’s expectations and continue the family business of Price & Son. With the shoe factory’s future hanging in the balance, help arrives in the unlikely but spectacular form of Lola, played by Olivier award-winner Matt Henry, a fabulous performer in need of some sturdy new stilettos.
This hilarious musical has high-kicked its way into London’s glittering West End as the ultimate fun night out.
