Kinky Boots to transfer to London?
I have visited Broadway on 4 occasions, most recently in 2013 when I saw Kinky Boots. I LOVED AND RAVED about the show when I got back home, and was genuinely surprised that the show wasn't on in London as the story is set in the UK! I've listened to the soundtrack hundreds of times and think it could be one of the best new musicals, better than a lot of shows currently on London's West End.
SO imagine my excitement when I heard that KINKY BOOTS IS COMING TO LONDON * or...well...hotly rumoured anyway. Apparently Billy Porter is going to bring the role of Lola over to London, with the show opening at the Palace Theatre in early 2015. Any of you guys stateside know anymore about this?
I found a uk addressed website for Kinky Boots http://www.kinkybootsmusical.co.uk/
But can't tell whether it is a fan site or the UK marketing team getting ready to make an announcement! Thoughts/ opinions guys?
Also how do you think it will fare in England compared to the US?!
