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.

I just want to give warning to all of you there if any of you would like to buy a ticket. Please don't buy it on restricted view as will only totally ruin your experience of the show. There is no way you can enjoy the show if you only to see 3/4 of the stage. We were mis-sold the... More

A thoroughly enjoyable performance. Cast sang in an American accent which was a little annoying but didn't detract from an unforgettable show!

I went to this with my wife. I knew the rough premise, failing shoe factory stuck in it's ways changes and makes "kinky boots" but wow the story had so much more. Great laughs, great songs and a great cast. The crowd loved it and on a Thursday night the performance got a standing ovation. Would highly recommend.

I took my daughters and wife to see Kinky Boots as their Christmas surprise. They did not know the story which made the experience even better! Wow what a show. A wonderful, talented cast served up a fantastic show that we will remember for a long time. Great songs which we are still singing! Go and see it - you... More
