Cast Of Kinky Boots Wowed Edinburgh At Show Launch

Cast members from the hit musical Kinky Boots wowed an invited audience earlier this week as they visited the city to launch their upcoming visit to Edinburgh Playhouse this Christmas season.

Cast members from the hit musical Kinky Boots wowed an invited audience earlier this week as they visited the city to launch their upcoming visit to Edinburgh Playhouse this Christmas season.

The city’s bar and restaurant complex Brewhemia held the prestigious event which was hosted by Forth One’s Arlene Stuart.

Award winning cast member Callum Francis, who plays Lola in the show (until 15 December) entertained audiences with exclusive numbers from the show along with Angels Connor Collins from Glasgow and Jason Winter.

Following the event, the cast stopped tourists and shoppers in their tracks as they did some sightseeing in their thigh-high boots, visiting the Royal Mile and the Camera Obscura viewing platform.

Kinky Boots, the winner of every major Best Musical award, comes to Edinburgh Playhouse from Monday 10 December 2018 – Saturday 5 January 2019.

Callum Francis will play Lola until 15 December 2018 and Kayi Ushe will play the role from 17 December 2018. Paula Lane, known for her role as Kylie Platt in Coronation Street, will play Lauren and Joel Harper-Jackson will play Charlie.

Also in the Kinky Boots cast are Demitri Lampra (Don), Adam Price (George) Helen Ternent (Nicola) who will be accompanied by Charlie Allen, Nicola Avino, Lizzie Bea, Joshua St Clair, Connor Collins, Daniel Conway, Shaun Dalton, John Dempsey, Niki Evans, Mary Fox, Scarlet Gabriel, Damon Gould, George Grayson, Portia Harry, Joshua Lovell, Jacob McIntosh, Chileshe Mondelle, Alfie Parker, Fred Smiley, Toyan Thomas-Browne, Andy Watkins and Jason Winter.

Kinky Boots at the Adelphi Theatre has become a favourite with UK theatregoers having won three Olivier Awards for Best New Musical, Best Costume Design and Best Actor in a Musical for Matt Henry who played Lola. Kinky Boots also won the London Evening Standard BBC Radio 2 Audience Award for Best Musical as well as three WhatsOnStage Awards for Best New Musical, Best Actor in a Musical and Best Choreography.

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 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.

With direction and choreography by two-time Tony® Award-winner Jerry Mitchell (Legally Blonde, Hairspray), Kinky Boots is the winner of every major Best Musical award including three Olivier Awards, three WhatsOnStage Awards as well as six Broadway Tony® Awards.
Kinky Boots is produced by Daryl Roth and Hal Luftig and Playful Productions, in association with Cameron Mackintosh.
