From the factory floor of Northampton to the catwalks of Milan, Kinky Boots struts into Leeds Grand Theatre this April — showcasing songs from Grammy and Tony-winning pop icon Cyndi Lauper.

Kinky Boots is a joyous musical celebration about the friendships we discover and the belief that you can change the world when you change your mind.

Inspired by true events, the show tells the story of Charlie Price, a shoe manufacturer from Northampton who is struggling to live up to his father’s expectations and continue the family business of Price & Son. With the 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.

The musical stars Kayi Ushe in the role of Lola, Paula Lane, known for her role as Kylie Platt in Coronation Street, as Lauren and Joel Harper-Jackson as Charlie. The show is directed and choreographed by Jerry Mitchell (Legally Blonde, Hairspray) from a book by Broadway legend Harvey Fierstein (La Cage Aux Folles).

Kinky Boots is at Leeds Grand Theatre from Tuesday 9th to Saturday 20th April 2019. Book online at leedsgrandtheatre.com or call Box Office on 0844 848 2700
