Queen of Soul and West End leading lady Beverley Knight is set to star in The Drifters Girl, a brand new musical telling the remarkable story of beloved soul group The Drifters, arriving at the Garrick Theatre in the Autumn.

The Drifters Girl follows the story of Faye Treadwell, legendary manager of The Drifters, and her three decade fight to turn the Atlantic Records group into a worldwide phenomenon. As the world’s first female, African-American music manager, Faye revels in hit records and sell-out tours and fights through legal battles and personal tragedy, all the while refusing to give up on the group she loved.

The Drifters Girl features a soundtrack of iconic songs, with “Save The Last Dance for Me”, “Under the Boardwalk”, “Stand By Me” and “Saturday Night at the Movies” to name just a few.

Beverley Knight is one of Britain’s greatest and most popular soul singers, having released eight studio albums to date. She’s no stranger to the West End stage, having led the casts of The Bodyguard, Memphis and Cats in recent years.

The Drifters Girl features a book by Ed Curtis, and the production will be directed by Jonathan Church. Design is by Anthony Ward, with choreography by Karen Bruce, lighting design by Ben Cracknell and music supervision and orchestrations by Chris Egan.

Further casting and full creative team is to be announced.

If you’re a soul fan, you won’t want to miss this spectacular new musical; The Drifters Girl plays at the Garrick Theatre from 1st October 2020.
