KINKY BOOTS
Adelphi Theatre

WRITTEN BY HARVEY FIERSTEIN AND CYNDI LAUPER
DIRECTED AND CHOREOGRAPHED BY JERRY MITCHELL
PREVIEWS FROM 21st AUGUST 2015
PRESS NIGHT 15th SEPTEMBER 2015
ADVANCE BOX OFFICE IS 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.



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.

KEY CHANGES
Child pop star-turned West End composer Denis King
to release his memoir celebrating a life spent in music as an Ebook and audio book on 8th April 2015.

In the 1950s and early 60s Denis King was a member of Britain’s first ever boy band, The King Brothers, performing with his two older brothers, Mike and Tony.

With Denis aged just 13, The King Brothers toured around the UK, performing two shows a night, toured Europe, appeared in summer seaside shows, made numerous TV appearances and in 1956 became the youngest variety act to appear at the world famous London Palladium.

Since then, Denis has composed over 200 TV themes including the Ivor Novello Award-winning Black Beauty, and Lovejoy, Dick Turpin, We’ll Meet Again, Two’s Company and Hannay.

He has collaborated with theatre legends - Alan Ayckbourn among them - to co-write over 25 stage musicals, including the original 1977 RSC production of Privates On Parade, which won the Ivor Novello Award for Best Musical, Worzel Gummidge, A Saint She Ain’t and the musical version of Stepping Out, all for the West End.

His career has encompassed every aspect of showbusiness - singing, performing, producing and composing. He has experienced success alongside disaster and betrayal. The artists he has worked alongside read like a who’s who of British and American stage and screen: Tony Bennett, Nina Simone, Howard Keel, Sammy Cahn, Albert Finney, Dame Edna Everage, Maureen Lipman, Elaine Stritch, Julia McKenzie, Dudley Moore, Jimi Hendrix, Ronnie Corbett, Frank Sinatra, Judy Garland...

KEY CHANGES, his eagerly awaited memoir, is not a potted history nor a lengthy name-drop. It is an intimate, funny portrait of the grind as well as the glamour in what most people outside the entertainment industry wrongly assume is a charmed way to earn a living. It is an extremely frank and personal account of the highs and lows of showbusiness, from post-war Twice Nightly Variety to the present day.

As well as being a brilliant musician, Denis is also a witty anecdotalist, and the stories he tells are funny, poignant, eye-opening and at times shocking. KEY CHANGES, to be released on Wednesday 8 April, will also be available as a 7-hour audio book, narrated and musically underscored by the author, and illustrated with excerpts from his personal sound archive, including music specially performed by him exclusively for the recording. It will be available via iTunes, Audible.com, Play.com, Google Play.

A CD, Black Beauty and other TV Themes by Denis King will also be available

Joe Stilgoe
‘New Songs For Old Souls’
Released on 27th April 2015
www.joestilgoe.com

Joe Stilgoe, is the renaissance man of modern jazz. He is a pianist, a jazz musician and a singer/songwriter. Joe has a new album, 'New Songs For Old Souls' - which is to be released April 27th on Linn Records.

The album consists of 12 songs with ten originals by Joe, including three thrilling big band numbers: ‘Nobody Cares Like Me’, ‘Pocket Song’ and a new version of ‘Gold On Silver’, previously heard on his last album 'Songs On Film Live'. Joe also duets with Liane Carroll on a wistful cover of Brian Wilson’s ‘I Just Wasn’t Made For These Times’, one of the album’s two non-original songs.

The album release coincides with his first major West End stage role, in Kevin Spacey’s ‘High Society’ at the Old Vic Theatre - from April 30th - August 22nd 2015. Directed by Olivier Award-winning Maria Friedman, Joe will be performing in a role that has been specially created for him.

"It's a dream job in many ways, I suppose, and I'll be playing to my perfect audience: people who like a bit of nostalgia, a little swing, and a lot of authenticity."

Beautiful: The Carole King Musical’, is one of the top-selling titles on Broadway and winner of two Tony Awards in 2014. The show will open in London on February 24th at the Aldwych Theatre. The Original Broadway Cast Recording of 'Beautiful: The Carole King Musical' won a Grammy for Best Musical Theatre Album. The album debuted at NO.1 on Billboard’s Top Broadway Chart.

‘Beautiful’, tells the inspiring true story of King’s remarkable rise to stardom, from being part of a hit songwriting team with her former husband Gerry Goffin, to her relationship with fellow writers and best friends Cynthia Weil and Barry Mann, to becoming one of the most successful solo acts in popular music history. Along the way, she made more than beautiful music, she wrote the soundtrack to a generation.

To date, more than 400 of her compositions have been recorded by over 1,000 artists, resulting in 100 hit singles. Now 70 and still full of life, Carole King is without question the most successful and revered female songwriter in pop music history.
