THE DRIFTERS GIRL extends West End run at Garrick Theatre

The Drifters Girl at the Garrick Theatre is now playing until 12 February 2023.

Adam J BernardTarinn CallenderMatt Henry and Tosh Wanogho-Maud play The Drifters in a brand new musical which tells the remarkable story of one of the world’s greatest vocal groups and the woman who made them.

Beverley Knight will star as Faye Treadwell, the legendary manager of The Drifters, who, alongside her husband, fought for three decades to turn Atlantic Records’ hottest vocal group into a global phenomenon. Beverley continues in the role through to Saturday 2 July, with casting from that date to be announced.

From the highs of hit records and sell out tours to the lows of legal battles and personal tragedy, The Drifters Girl charts the trailblazing efforts of the world’s first African American, female music manager and how she refused to ever give up on the group she loved. Thirty years, and hundreds of hit songs later, there is no doubt that Faye Treadwell was and always will be, The Drifters Girl.

With an incredible soundtrack of some of the most famous songs in history, including Save The Last Dance For Me, Under The BoardwalkKissin In The Back Row Of The MoviesStand By MeCome On Over To My PlaceSaturday Night At The Movies and many more, The Drifters Girl will play for just 15 performances in Newcastle before transferring to London for a limited 20 week season.
