Matt Henry and Killian Donnelly are set to reprise their roles as Lola and Charlie for performances on 26 and 28 November 2018, both of which will be filmed for a special Kinky Boots release. Tickets to see Matt Henry and Killian Donnelly in Kinky Boots can be purchased here.

The smash-hit Cyndi Lauper musical, Kinky Boots, premiered in London’s West End back in 2015 and has won three Laurence Olivier Awards, including Best New Musical and Best Actor in a Musical for Matt Henry.

Donnelly departed the show in August 2016, but reprised to the role of Charlie Price on Broadway before later returning to Les Miserables in London. Meanwhile, Henry was recently awarded an MBE for his contributions to theatre as part of the 2017 Queen’s Christmas Honours, and since leaving Kinky Boots, he has starred as Pirithous in the Shakespeare’s Globe production of The Two Noble Kinsmen.  

Kinky Boots must end on 12 January 2019 at the Adelphi Theatre, as it will be replaced by the UK premiere of Waitress.

If you can’t make it to the special Kinky Boots performances on the 26th or 28th of November, then be sure to catch this award-winning musical before it gets swept away!
