KINKY BOOTS wins London Lifestyle Award for Theatre Show of the Year

Kinky Boots, now in its second successful year in London’s West End, has won the London Lifestyle Award for Theatre Show of the Year. The awards celebrate the best of the ‘lifestyle industry’, with 20 awards, 15 being voted for by the public, going to talented individuals and enterprises that help make London such an amazing city.

The London Lifestyle Awards were created in 2010 with a mission to honour those whose work has made an outstanding contribution to London and its lifestyle to the ultimate benefit of Londoners and visitors.

Kinky Boots at the Adelphi Theatre has become a favourite with UK theatregoers having won every major Best Musical award. Kinky Boots has won three Olivier Awards for Best New Musical, Best Costume Design and Best Actor in a Musical for Matt Henry who plays 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 for Matt Henry, and Best Choreography.

Producers Daryl Roth and Hal Luftig said: “We are absolutely delighted that Kinky Boots has received such a special award, recognising how our beloved show reaches out to the heart and soul of enthralled audiences.”
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 (David Hunter) 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.
The production also won a Grammy® Award for Best Musical Theatre Album.
