KINKY BOOTS
Adelphi Theatre

WRITTEN BY HARVEY FIERSTEIN AND CYNDI LAUPER
DIRECTED AND CHOREOGRAPHED BY JERRY MITCHELL
NOW PREVIEWING
PRESS NIGHT 15th SEPTEMBER 2015
ADVANCE BOX OFFICE NOW OPEN
Official UK Website: www.kinkybootsthemusical.co.uk

The UK premiere of Kinky Boots, the feel-good multi award-winning musical, will open in the West End on 15 September at the Adelphi Theatre, with previews from 21 August 2015. With a book by four-time Tony Award-winner Harvey Fierstein, music and lyrics by pop icon Cyndi Lauper, and direction and choreography by two-time Tony Award-winner Jerry Mitchell, Kinky Boots won the 2013 Tony Award for Best Musical, and the 2014 Grammy Award for Best Musical Theatre Album.


Killian Donnelly and Matt Henry will portray the central characters Charlie and Lola at the heart of the story, and joining them are Amy Lennox (Lauren) - trio pictured above, photo by Matt Crockett, Jamie Baughan (Don), Amy Ross (Nicola) and Michael Hobbs (George).



Inspired by a true story and based on the Miramax film written by Geoff Deane and Tim Firth, Kinky Boots tells the story of Charlie Price who has reluctantly inherited his father’s Northampton shoe factory. Trying to live up to his father’s legacy and save the family business from bankruptcy, Charlie finds inspiration in the form of Lola. A fabulous entertainer in need of some sturdy stilettos, Lola turns out to be the one person who can help Charlie become the man he’s meant to be. As they work to turn the factory around, this unlikely pair finds that they have more in common than they ever dreamed possible… and discovers that when you change your mind, you can change the world.

IN THE HEIGHTS

Saturday 3rd October until Sunday 1st November 2015
KING’S CROSS THEATRE
Good’s Way, King’s Cross, London, N1C 4UR

This Tony Award-winning Broadway musical will return to London following a critically acclaimed sell-out UK premiere at Southwark Playhouse in 2014.

CLICK HERE TO BOOK ONLINE

In The Heights is an uplifting and exhilarating journey into Washington Heights, one of Manhattan's most vibrant communities – a place where the coffee is light and sweet, the windows are always open and the breeze carries the rhythm of three generations of music. It’s a community on the brink of change, full of hopes, dreams and pressures, where the biggest struggle can be deciding which traditions to take with you, and which ones to leave behind. With a gripping story and unforgettable Latin and hip-hop infused score, In The Heights is a ground-breaking contemporary musical about what it takes to make a living, what it costs to have a dream, and what it means to be home.

In The Heights opened at Broadway’s Richard Rodgers Theatre in 2008 where it was nominated for thirteen Tony Awards, winning four for Best Musical, Best Original Score, Best Choreography and Best Orchestrations. It also won the 2009 Grammy Award for its Original Broadway Cast Album and was nominated for the 2009 Pulitzer Prize in Drama.

Reprising their roles following the run at Southwark Playhouse are David Bedella as Kevin, Josie Benson as Camila, Victoria Hamilton-Barritt as Daniela, Sam Mackay as Usnavi, Sarah Naudi as Carla and Eve Polycarpou as Abuela. They are joined by Jade Ewen as Vanessa, Lily Frazer as Nina, Antoine Murray-Straughan as Graffiti Pete, Joe Aaron Reid as Benny and Cleve September as Sonny. The cast also includes Jocasta Almgill, Courtney-Mae Briggs, Michael Cortez, Gabriela Garcia, Reiss Hinds, Alexandra Sarmiento and Spin.

In The Heights is directed by Luke Sheppard whose recent credits include Oliver! (Watermill Theatre), Adrian Mole (Curve Theatre, Leicester), Next Fall (Southwark Playhouse), Peter Pan (Beck Theatre), Mort (Rose Theatre), Bed And Sofa (Finborough Theatre) and Jet Set Go! (Jermyn Street Theatre). Luke is also Associate Director of Matilda in the West End and on Broadway.

Tickets start at £19.50, with a selection of best seats available for Under 25s at a special rate of £15 at every performance.

King’s Cross Theatre is a brand new purpose built theatre at King’s Cross Station. The venue is currently home to The Railway Children which has just extended its run until 3rd January 2015 and will continue to play in rep with In The Heights. King’s Cross Theatre will also be opening a late night bar to coincide with the run of In The Heights, opening an hour before every performance until late, with live music and DJs after certain performances.

Peripheral Visions
A multidisciplinary arts festival organised by GRAD

This event brings together three documentary theatre productions on the themes of migration and social inequality in Bulgaria, Russia, and the UK.

A special project of the Sixth Moscow Biennale, the Peripheral Visions theatre programme interrogates the interdependent relationships between immigration, documentation, and the performance of national identity in contemporary culture. Curated by Molly Flynn, the series includes works by the London-based theatre collective Molodyi teatr, Moscow-based performer/director Talgat Batalov, and Theatre Replika, Bulgaria’s leading documentary theatre company.

The performances will take place within a solo exhibition of internationally acclaimed, Moscow-based artist Olga Chernysheva, curated by GRAD director Elena Sudakova. Events will be held on various dates during the exhibition which runs from 2 October until 21 November. This programme supports GRAD’s commitment to bringing new insights into Eastern European art, design and culture through sharing specialist knowledge in ways that capture the imagination and inspire new ideas.

The full documentary theatre programme is as follows:

Bloody East Europeans, Molodyi Teatr
9th October 2015
Performed in the style of a church-basement vaudeville, musical-satire Bloody East Europeans comes to GRAD from the London-based theatre collective Molodyi Teatr. The play features untrained actors from across the former Eastern Bloc telling true stories of Eastern European immigrants in the UK: from night clubs in Stratford to Border Agency bureaucracy.

Uzbek, Talgat Batalov
23rd October 2015
Talgat Batalov’s autobiographical production Uzbek recounts the performer’s own experience immigrating to Moscow from Tashkent at the age of nineteen. A ‘stand-up comedy solo show’, Uzbek is a sarcastic deconstruction of Batalov’s own national identity as a Muscovite-Uzbek of Tatar descent. In the show, Batalov presents his audience members with his actual immigration papers, raising questions around the status of documents and the performance of national identity in contemporary culture. Written in collaboration with Ekaterina Bondarenko, Uzbek is a co-production of Teatr.doc and the Joseph Beuys Theatre.

We Are the Rubbish from Eastern Europe, Theatre Replika
12th / 13th November 2015
Theatre Replika, Bulgaria’s leading documentary theatre company, presents We Are the Rubbish From Eastern Europe, in which actors share true stories from Bulgarians living on the streets in Sofia as well as those who chose to move abroad. Through the rubric of rubbish, both literal and figurative, Theatre Replika’s remarkable work interrogates the lasting legacy of Socialism in a contemporary Bulgarian context. Directed by Georg Genoux, We Are the Rubbish from Eastern Europe is supported by the Goethe Institute Bulgaria and Democracy.doc.

A NEW ALBUM CELEBRATES LONDON’S FORGOTTEN MUSICALS

Stage Door Records are pleased to announce the release of LOST WEST END, a unique collection of recordings from lost West End musicals, was released on July 24th, 2015.

LOST WEST END celebrates London’s forgotten musicals and brings together over 20 unique ‘lost’ West End productions on one album. The collection reflects 30 years of musicals that have come and gone from the West End, showcasing these unique theatrical works. Ranging from
1976 to 2009, all the musicals featured had relatively short London residencies and although they weren’t always met with critical praise, they nevertheless contain interesting, memorable scores and performances that deserve to be heard.

The diverse selection of shows featured range from epic through-sung adaptations of the classic novels ‘Gone With The Wind’, ‘The Far Pavilions’ and ‘Tess Of The D’Urbervilles’ to musical autobiographies of iconic historical figures Leonardo Da Vinci, Toulouse Lautrec and Bernadette Soubirous.

The ‘Lost West End’ musicals included are: ‘Liza Of Lambeth’ (1976), ‘Troubadour’ (1978), ‘I’ (1983), ‘Y’ (1983), ‘Mutiny!’ (1985), ‘Bernadette – The People’s Musical’ (1990), ‘Valentine’s Day’ (1992), ‘Which Witch’ (1992), ‘Robin Prince Of Sherwood’ (1993), ‘Leonardo – A Portrait Of Love’ (1993), ‘Out Of The Blue’ (1994), ‘Prisoner Cell Block H’ (1995), ‘Maddie’ (1997), ‘Tess Of The D’Urbervilles’ (1999), ‘Lautrec’ (2000) ‘La Cava’ (2000), ‘Beautiful And Damned’ (2004), ‘The Far Pavilions’ (2005), ‘Behind The Iron Mask’ (2005), ‘Gone With The Wind’ (2008), ‘Too Close To The Sun’ (2009).

The album features a glittering ensemble of West End vocalists including; Graham Bickley, Meredith Braun, Simon Burke, David Essex, Susannah Fellows, Alexander Hanson, Angela Richards and Andrew C. Wadsworth.

Although the shows didn’t last, their music lives on and this collection affirms that the musicals featured are well worth rediscovering.
