Olivier Nominated KINKY BOOTS announces West End cast album live recording
Kinky Boots, Broadway's huge-hearted, high-heeled hit, today announces the release of the West End cast recording on Sony Masterworks. The album was recorded live with the current West End cast at the Adelphi Theatre and is available to buy from Friday 1 April 2016 and pre-order on Friday 11 March 2016.
Kinky Boots has become a favourite with UK theatregoers having won the London Evening Standard BBC Radio 2 Audience Award for Best Musical and the WhatsOnStage Award for Best New Musical.
Kinky Boots has also been nominated for seven Olivier Awards, including Best Costume Design, Autograph Sound Award for Outstanding Achievement in Music, Best Theatre Choreographer, MasterCard Best New Musical, Best Actress in a Supporting Role in a Musical (Amy Lennox), and two nominations for Best Actor in a Musical (Killian Donnelly and Matt Henry).
With a book by Broadway legend and four-time Tony® Award-winner Harvey Fierstein (La Cage Aux Folles), and songs by Grammy® and Tony® winning pop icon Cyndi Lauper, this joyous 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 a gentlemen's shoe factory in Northampton to the glamorous catwalks of Milan. Charlie Price (Killian Donnelly) 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 (Matt Henry), a fabulous performer in need of some sturdy new stilettos.
With direction and choreography by two-time Tony® Award-winner Jerry Mitchell (Legally Blonde, Hairspray), Kinky Boots is the winner of six Broadway Tony® Awards including Best Musical, Best Score and Best Choreography.
