The Drifters Girl

Queen of British Soul and West End leading lady Beverley Knight stars in the world première of new musical The Drifters Girl, with Adam J Bernard (Dreamgirls), Tarinn Callender (Hamilton), Matt Henry (Kinky Boots) and Tosh Wanogho-Maud (Showboat).

Discover the story of The Drifters and the truth about the woman who made them. Beverley Knight stars as Faye Treadwell, the manager of The Drifters who, alongside her husband, fought for three decades to turn Atlantic Records' hottest vocal group into a global phenomenon.

From the highs of hit records and sell out tours to the lows of legal battles and personal tragedy, The Drifters Girl charts the efforts of the world’s first African American female music manager and how she refused to ever give up on the group she loved.

With a soundtrack of songs including "Save The Last Dance For Me", "Under The Boardwalk", "Kissin’ In The Back Row Of The Movies", "Stand By Me", "Come On Over To My Place" and "Saturday Night At The Movies".
