The musicals Kinky Boots, From Here to Eternity and The Wind in the Willows are coming to disc May 25 from Liberator Films and MVD Entertainment Group.
The winner of the Tony Award for Best Musical, Kinky Boots, written by Harvey Fierstein with music and lyrics by Cyndi Lauper, is coming out on both DVD and Blu-ray. It’s a story of two people with seemingly nothing in common. Factory owner Charlie is struggling to save his family business, and Lola is an entertainer with an idea. The unexpected pair learn to embrace their differences and create a line of sturdy stilettos. Stars include Killian Donnelly (Les Misérables 2012), Cordelia Farnworth and Jak Allen-Anderson (Beauty and the Beast 2017), Graham Kent (From Hell) and Robert Grose (Absolute Beginners).
A Tim Rice musical adapted from James Jones’ Pulitzer winning novel, From Here to Eternity is being released on DVD. In the film, when troubled Private Prewitt falls for escort girl Lorene and his sergeant embarks on a dangerous affair with an officer’s wife, the lives of both men are set on a course they cannot control. As war approaches, the worlds of the four lovers and the soldiers of G Company are dramatically intertwined and ripped apart.
A musical from Julian Fellowes, the creator of Downton Abbey, and award-winning composer and lyricist George Stiles and Anthony Drewe, The Wind in the Willows, an adaptation of the classic book, is coming out on DVD. Ratty, Badger, Mole and the impulsive Toad go on a series of riotous adventures, spiraling from Toad’s insatiable need for speed. The show stars Rufus Hound and Simon Lipkin (both from “Doctor Who”).
