Oh, no!

The West End production of Kinky Boots has set the date for its final performance in the West End, as it bows out of the Adelphi Theatre after four years.

The musical, which has music and lyrics by Cyndi Lauper, will play its final show on Saturday 12th January 2019 - incidentally, the same night Dreamgirls will close at the nearby Savoy Theatre.

Kinky Boots will have played over 1,400 performances when it closes.

But ... there's still 7 months to get to see it and we have some fab ticket offers from just £15 saving you up to 57%.

Kinky Boots starred Killian Donnelly and Matt Henry when it first opened in London, with Henry going on to win an Olivier Award for playing drag queen Lola, who forms a partnership with shoe factory owner Charlie to create a line of high-heel boot for the drag industry.

Currently, the show stars Simon-Anthony Rhoden as Lola, Oliver Tompsett as Charlie and Natalie McQueen as Lauren.

Kinky Boots premiered on Broadway in 2013, and won the Tony Award for Best Musical.

Since then, it has seen many celebrities star in the production, including Billy Porter, Brendon Urie, Jake Shears and Wayne Brady.

More info about the show below and here's the trailer ...


Inspired by true events, Kinky Boots takes you from the factory floor to the glamorous catwalks of Milan.

Charlie Price 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, a fabulous performer in need of some sturdy new stilettos.
