Beverley Knight stars as a visionary manager in this new musical about The Drifters

After starring in suffragette musical 'Sylvia' at the Old Vic, soul-singing legend Beverley Knight is back in the West End in Autumn 2020, and she's found an unlikely vehicle for her talents; a new musical about all-male singing group The Drifters. 'The Drifters Girl' centres on the woman behind the band, Faye Treadwell, who was the first African-American female manager and who helped propel the group to stardom over three decades.

It'll be packed with Drifters hits like 'Stand By Me', 'Down By the Boardwalk' and 'Save the Last Dance For Me', quite a few of which will presumably be retooled to suit Knight's vocal talents. 'The Drifters Girl' premieres in Newcastle, before coming to Garrick Theatre in October 2020.
