Although there have been various earlier entertainment buildings on the site the reconstructed Adelphi Theatre, with its art deco interiors, opened to the public in December 1930 with Jessie Matthews starring in Ever Green.The front-of-house areas of the Adelphi Theatre were restored to their original lustre and extravagance in 1993 when Andrew Lloyd Webber became co-owner and opened his musical production of Sunset Boulevard. Other famous productions at the Adelphi Theatre include Gertrude Lawrence in Cole Porter’s Nymph Errant, Ivor Novello’s The Dancing Years, Bless The Bride, Beatrice Lillie as Auntie Mame, Van Johnson in The Music Man, Lionel Bart’s Blitz! and Maggie May, Charlie Girl with Anna Neagle, a revival of Me and My Girl originally starring Robert Lindsay and Emma Thompson and in the Adelphi Theatre’s longest run (over nine years), the new Broadway production of Kander and Ebb’s Chicago. Revivals of Evita and Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat have proved enormously popular. More recently, the theatre played host to the worldwide premiere of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musical Love Never Dies.

Avoided this one for a while, decided to give it a try and it was a blast. Funny,, as in really funny at times, vibrant, witty dialogue, impressive dancing and impressive songs and great performances across the board. As has been said many times, Lola(Matt Henry) outstanding, but just as good for me was Killian Donnelly as Charlie, who gets... More

This show was really upbeat and lots of fun. Lola is a larger than life character but so many other interesting ones too. What great costumes and choreography. I laughed lots too. At the end everyone was standing, cheering and clapping. Well done all!

You probably won't go away humming the tunes but that doesn't mean you won't enjoy the show. It is all about the energy and the costumes. Not a huge cast but everyone works their socks off. On the night we went one of the leads played by an understudy but they were very good and would hightly recommend the show.... More

Four of us went to see Kinky Boots with little knowledge of what the show was about, but once the show started we laughed and marvelled at the actors in the Boots. It was an excellent show the actors had really good voices and could really dance, we left the theatre with smiles on our faces.

After visiting the discount ticket-sales box office in Central London , I decided to buy tickets to Kinky Boots. The show was brilliant. Without giving the plot away this true story was set in Nottingham. The acting was great and music upbeat and wonderful, the actors had truly amazing voices. If you are interested in visiting London's Westend, I can... More

I will keep this short, however I wanted to leave a review. I booked this for my wife's Birthday, she loves the theatre, I am not such an avid fan, although I do appreciate a good show. Kinky Boots was my wife's choice, I cannot say I was looking forward to the show, my fears grew as the audience for... More
