Kinky Boots Angel Voices Title Song for Focus Features' "The Boxtrolls"

News   Kinky Boots Angel Voices Title Song for Focus Features' "The Boxtrolls"
 
Sean Patrick Doyle, currently appearing as an Angel in the Tony-winning hit musical Kinky Boots, provides the vocals for the title song in Laika and Focus Features' stop motion feature "The Boxtrolls."

Laika and Focus Features brought audiences the Oscar-nominated "Coraline" and "ParaNorman."

In the title song, which was written by Eric Idle with "Atonement" composer Dario Marianelli, Doyle voice-matches Academy Award winner Ben Kingsley as the evil Archibald Snatcher’s alter ego, M. Frou Frou.

"The Boxtrolls" arrived in theatres Sept. 26, and the soundtrack – featuring Doyle – is currently available for download on iTunes.

Here's how the film is billed: "'The Boxtrolls' is a comedic fable that unfolds in Cheesebridge, a posh Victorian-era town obsessed with wealth, class and the stinkiest of fine cheeses. Beneath charming cobblestone streets dwell the Boxtrolls, a misunderstood cavern-dwelling community of quirky and lovable oddballs who wear recycled cardboard boxes the way turtles wear shells. The Boxtrolls have raised an orphaned human boy, Eggs (voiced by Isaac Hempstead-Wright), since infancy as one of their dumpster-diving and mechanical junk-collecting own. When the Boxtrolls are targeted by a villainous pest exterminator Archibald Snatcher (Kingsley) who is bent on eradicating them as his ticket to Cheesebridge society, the kind-hearted band of tinkerers must turn to their adopted charge and an adventurous rich girl Winnie (Elle Fanning) to bridge two worlds amidst the winds of change – and cheese."

In addition to Kinky Boots, Doyle has appeared on Broadway in La Cage Aux Folles. On television Doyle can be seen on “Orange is the New Black,” “Law and Order," and "The Kennedy Center Honors.”
