Original Kinky Boots ensemble member Andy Kelso will return to the Tony-winning musical at the Al Hirschfeld Theatre January 11.

Kelso, who first played Charlie Price in January 2014, will again step into the role through the show’s final performance on April 7.

"I am beyond excited to be dusting off my 6-inch heels and strutting them back to the Al Hirschfeld,” Kelso said in a statement. “Kinky Boots has been a monumental chapter in my life. Everyone and everything associated with it holds such a special place in my heart full of the most wonderful memories and I can't wait to make some more! It is truly an honor to play this role and be a part of this show’s legacy. Let’s make boots… again! "

Kelso succeeds U.K. pop star Conor Maynard, who plays his final performance January 10. Kelso also begins performances the same day that Callum Francis, star of the U.K. and Australian tours of Kinky Boots, makes his Broadway debut as Lola. Francis, who will play the role through March 17, succeeds J. Harrison Ghee, who departs the show January 10, but is set to return to the role March 19 through the show’s final performance.

As recently announced, Tiki Barber, a former American Football running back who played for the New York Giants for ten seasons, will take over the role of Don January 21–March 3.
