Kinky Boots Sets Off-Broadway Closing, DVD and Blu-Ray Now on Sale

The Tony-Award winner for Best Musical, Kinky Boots, will be closing its Off-Broadway engagement on November 20th. Thankfully the musical was captured live and is available on both DVD and Blu-Ray, now at a 30% discount.

Featuring 16 original songs by Cyndi Lauper and a book by Harvey Fierstein, Kinky Boots won every major Best Musical award during its Broadway season. The show enjoyed a successful six-year Broadway run, with the off-Broadway revival opening July 2022.

Here's how to get Kinky Boots - the Musical on DVD and Blu-Ray now:

 


 

The London production of Kinky Boots was filmed live in 2019 by Liberator Film Services (From Here to EternityAn American in ParisThe Wind in the Willows) in collaboration with streaming platform BroadwayHD. The filmed capture was released to cinemas, streaming, and home media after both the Broadway and West End productions closed.

Streaming rights were also sold to PBS' Great Performances series which aired the production as part of their Broadway Best series in 2020. PBS is streaming the production through its subscription platform, PBS Passport.

In a rare move, the captured performance was also released on DVD and Blu-Ray by Liberation Film Services. Amazon is now discounting the DVD and Blu-Ray releases at 30% off for a limited time.

 


 

The Off-Broadway revival of Kinky Boots opened at Stage 42 and received rave reviews, mostly for its starring cast. Broadway star Callum Francis appeared in the production as Lola (Francis previously portrayed the role in London, Australia, and Broadway). Joining him are Christian Douglas (Pretty Woman US Tour, Arena Stage: Newsies) as Charlie Price and Danielle Hope (The Wizard of Oz, Les Misérables) as Lauren.

Reviewing the show for TheaterMania, David Gordon said: "I don't know if theater actually has the power to change the world, and I certainly doubt that all the GOP wags trying to banish the existence of drag queens, trans people, and the LGBT community at large will make their way to 42nd and Ninth. But if we're lucky, maybe a few audience members will take Lauper and Fierstein's dictum to heart and shift their way of thinking. In this miserably divisive world, that's all we can ask."
