The musical, penned by Harvey Fierstein and Cyndi Lauper, tells the story of Charlie Price, who inherits a shoe factory from his father. To save the business, Charlie forms an unlikely partnership with cabaret performer and drag queen, Lola, and the pair hatch a plan to produce a line of high-heeled boots. No word yet on whether Collins will take on one of the leading roles in the production - the Kinky Boots website has him listed under 'Ensemble'. This isn't Collins' first appearance in a musical - he previously starred in the UK tour of Hairspray.
