Hot on the heels of its spectacular Australian premiere in Melbourne last month, multi-award winning, big-hearted new musical Kinky Boots, will strut into the Capitol Theatre, Sydney from April 2017.
Tickets go on sale to the general public on December 5 through Ticketmaster or kinkybootsthemusical.com.au.
Winner of every major international Best Musical award, Kinky Boots features Tony and Grammy-winning songs by pop icon Cyndi Lauper, a book by Broadway royalty Harvey Fierstein and direction and choreography by two-time Tony Award-winner Jerry Mitchell.
Australian Producer Michael Cassel said; “Australian audiences have embraced this show so enthusiastically I am delighted, together with my partners Daryl Roth and Hal Luftig, to announce a Sydney season so that even more people can experience the joy and fun of Kinky Boots and the talents of this phenomenal cast.
We have theatregoers of all ages and from all walks of life laughing, crying and cheering every night – I just can’t wait for Sydneysiders to experience that Kinky Boots high.”
Callum Francis and Toby Francis lead the company as principal characters Lola and Charlie – the fabulous entertainer in need of some sturdy stilettos and the young man he inspires with an outrageous idea that could change both their destinies.
Sydney-based singer, writer and musical theatre performer Toby Francis was most recently a member of the internationally renowned Australian music ensemble The Ten Tenors.
British star Callum Francis makes his Australian debut directly from London, where he wowed audiences as the understudy Lola on the West End stage and performed in UK productions of The Lion King, Ghost and Miss Saigon.
